Eden Community Gives Back: the FIFTH AND FINAL Christmas family has been adopted! (Please help us raise Eden Points for gift shopping 12/09 – 12/14!)

When I heard about the Holiday Adopt-A-Family program, I knew I really wanted to participate - especially when I found out that the local women's shelter had a program. I've been supporting their local program with my EF commissions for awhile now, and after stopping by and seeing some of the people who are utilizing the shelter's services, I knew I really wanted to help out these people.

The local women's shelter is a safe haven for women and children of abuse - sexual and otherwise. They provide a safe space for the women to escape their abuse. A lot of these women are leaving their home without any of their belongings just to get away from abusive spouses. They leave all of their belongings, their house, and their treasured possessions to get themselves and their child out of the abuse. Many of the abusers kept the women from getting a job (to increase dependency), so the women don't have any steady income either. After hearing about everything these women have lost, I knew I really wanted to help out a family from the shelter.

The shelter has an anonymous program to protect people's privacy because of the topic at hand, but I was told I'd be sponsoring a three-person family: A young woman and her two children. I was not told the nature of their sponsorship, but I was told that all three of them were victims of abuse and had just recently escaped. The mother doesn't have any money for her clothing and food - much less presents for the children.

One of the children is a boy who would love to try some Kinex toys, and the girl is a small toddler who loves to play with dolls and watch Dora the Explorer. I'd love to be able to give these children a happy Holiday. Please help me and EdenFantasys to make this an amazing holiday where the children and mother can forget their problems!

Thank you so much for doing this. I am earning up my points to send in to help this deserving family. They deserve to know that there is also hope and kindness in this world.

We did it! We’re on the last of the five Christmas families! What an amazing few weeks!

Eden is starting this family out with $150 for gifts... but we can add to that amount and make it better as a community! Let's raise some points for the kids in this family and help them have wonderful holidays!

Anyone who would like to help can donate EdenPoints (which Eden will match 50 cents on the "dollar", meaning that if you donate 20.00 in EdenPoints, we will donate $10.00 in cash on your behalf. All you have to do is cash in your points and email me the amount and the code. (victoria@edenfantasys .com) It's that simple! To keep it timely, you must to have your donations in by the end of Tuesday night (December 14th). We will tally all of the donations on Thursday morning and cut the check so Jul!a can go shopping for these kids in time! (Do not post your cashed-in points code here! You can post what amount you donated though. And we will be thanking everyone who gave, at the end of the tally - right here on this thread!)

This is the last of the fundraiser for the holidays, folks – so give if you can! (for details on how this all works, see the general giving back thread here)

Thank you to everyone!

I do too. I'd love to see this family have tons of presents under the tree. According to what I was given, this little girl really loves Dora the Explorer too. That's so cute.

It makes me so happy to think about all of the kids we're helping to have a great Christmas - I hope everyone here stops for a moment on December 25th and imagines that excitement, those joyous squeals, the surprise and the glee that these kids will have because of all of us - and how much that will make their parents happy too. We got to play Santa for SIXTEEN children! How amazing is that?

Awesome, glad I'm not too late for this one. Unfortunately, the collection for the others was over by the time I saw them.
That gives me a few days to build up some more points to gift.


PS - I don't suppose someone could please message and remind me on monday????
Just in case - I don't want it to slip my mind!

I just emailed Victoria to donate the $25 gift card I made for an upcoming post on EdenCafe about Yule and other holiday traditions... Thanks so much for all the work you're putting in to this!

EdenFantasys has definitely ensured that mine and hubby's holidays will be cheery and bright, so I'm grateful for the chance to help do the same for someone else.
