11 days and we're out of the house. obviously, we won't be able to throw our annual holiday charity party this year :(
we are however, still sponsoring families with the genesis shelter thanks to the help of the generous folks in the wife's department at work.
the wife and i are also personally sponsoring a single dad and 2 year old boy. so, if you are looking for a way to give back this holiday season we'd welcome any help in making his christmas a very special one this year.
the son wears a 4T and is in need of clothes and age appropriate educational toys and books. we'll also need target and grocery store gift cards for the dad.
remember, the genesis foundation is always in need of toiletries (soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, etc.) and baby supplies (diapers, wipes, bottles, formula, etc.) for their in-house families. it is an amazing organization that does an incredible job helping homeless families with newborns and young children get back on their feet, get education, find jobs and homes and truly become self-reliant.
i know it is easy to get caught up in the madness that is the holiday season but i hope everyone can pause just a minute and spare just a little to those who truly need it so much.
if you want to donate or want more info on the genesis shelter please just let me know!
