Eden Gives Back- Christmas 2012- Adopted Family and Toy Drive

Hi everyone! Sorry I am so late at getting this post up! It’s been pretty hectic around here lately.

I want to begin by saying how proud I am of our community! I want to thank everyone who donated points. As corny as this may sound, it touches my heart when I think of how generous and selfless our community members are. I love you all!

I’ve adopted a family through the Adopt-A-Family program at our local Salvation Army. As some of you may know, I live in Canada. I’m not sure if our rules are any different than yours but I was given very minimal information on the family. What I can tell you though is that the family I had adopted consists of a single mother and a 4 year old daughter. I was given a list of things that the daughter likes. The list was quite simple. The girl likes princess stuff, Barbie stuff, play-dough, puzzles, craft items, and stickers. I had decided to go with the princess theme for all of the items I purchased.

The program coordinator had told me that the volunteers who adopt the families don’t typically purchase for the parent(s)- just the children. I asked her if I could purchase a few things for the mom and she said that was fine. Since I have no idea of the age of the mother, I decided to get her a sampler of high-end perfumes that includes a gift certificate for a full bottle of her choice and gift cards.

I also called our local outreach program. I had talked with a woman named Stephanie and asked her how I could help this season. She told me that on the 18th and 19th of December, families with low-income can come in on those days and pick a present for their children. She had told me that they really need toys that would be appropriate for children from ages 1-3.

Tomorrow the Salvation Army will pick up the items for the family and on Monday I have to bring the toys over to the outreach centre. I actually haven’t received the cheque yet from EF so I used my credit card since the items have to be tomorrow. I assume that since I am Canada and it’s the holidays, I won’t get it until mid next week at the earliest. I went a bit over budget, but I couldn’t help myself!

I wrote out a quick list of all the items in the pictures above for those who prefer to read instead of see photos.

That is extremely awesome and very giving of you especially since you haven't received the EF check just yet. I am sure the daughter and mom will love everything! As well as the little ones who's parents get to go shop for them at the outreach center.
