Update #2

I have had so much fun receiving thoughtful notes, opening packages & the gift cards that have come in the mail.

I have had even better time shopping for items for this little family! Have I ever mentioned that I like to shop :-)? Even more so for others. I can't say it enough, so I'll say it again & again, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your support & desire to help this family out. One of my favorite quotes of all time reads "Each of our deeds may share only a pinpoint of light, but added together they begin to make a significant difference". I have this quote printed & hanging on my fridge. I am thankful for the daily reminder to help those in need. I have had some people(in a nice way) tell me that I can't help/save everyone. I know I can't save everyone(I wish I could), but I can continue to make my little pinpoints along the way!

Here are a few photos of the pile of loot so far.

I am going to finish up some shopping tomorrow & put each child's stash in their own gift bag & create a cute tag for each one!

A huge thank you to a few of my friends/co-workers @ GT who pitched in. Thanks ladies!
I can't wait for their bags to be delivered!

My friend, Kim emailed me yesterday to let me know that she had just mailed off 4 pairs of shoes for the kids. My friends, Paula & Ken purchsed $100.00 worth of Wal*Mart gift cards for the family, & my friend, Laree gave me a $20.00 check & that was enough to purchase another pair of Old Navy Jeans for the oldest. YAY!They are totally ready to go back to school. You are ALL amazing. Thank you so much for helping! love you all!
