Getting Ready for Christmas 2013 -- Christmas Party for the Kids
Our holiday season is in the midst of our summer...way hot in the intense sun. No snow here!
From Christmas to Christmas, another thing we've noticed that hasn't changed much is the wonderful, heartwarming Children's Christmas Party hosted by our family, Bob and Roxanne on the Coast. Well, it's changed some over the years...it's BIGGER!
We always tell folks that want to contribute to holiday charities out there to please consider donating to this annual event. It's one of our favorites.......grass roots, with all donations going directly to the Party and the kids, no middle people sucking off salaries, fund raising and/or business expenses. AND, the smiles are priceless!
We love that Bob and Rox gift the parents with a picture of their child taken at the Party. These are often the only pictures of their children from year to year. The gift bags from Santa contain toys, sweets and often school supplies, Bob and Rox host lunch for everyone as well. You know how kids love hot dogs! It's a very special day for these families.
You can see more on Bob and Rox's blog and learn how you can make an easy donation.
Thank You for making a difference! A definite warm-and-fuzzy for the contributors, too!
These pictures were taken in Cuenca this year.
