First, I have to say there's absolutely NO pressure to toss in money if you don't want to...Susan (dreamin_of_ridin) just called me and we discussed making Christmas special for a 5 year old boy in her area that's fallen on hard times...



Susan's going to chime in with her paypal acct info and the plan is to collect funds then give Elijah's Mom a Toys-R-Us gift card.  Others involved in Elijah's story are working on making sure he and his Mom have Christmas dinner as well, and Susan's made certain that Elijah's school lunches are taken care of for the remainder of this school year

 If that doesn't make you smile, I'm calling you Grinch

Susan, you're a good woman...I'm in for $50 to start.  ANY donation is appreciated, just $5 will help make a difference for this little boy on Christmas day...

Thanks to Susan for getting this going and thanks to those members reading.  I appreciate you sharing this story because it was my reminder this year that Christmas isn't just about me or my family.

Hi everyone and Merry Christmas.

Thank you Michelle for helping with this. I asked for Michelle's advice and help because I know not many of you know me.

Anyway.... Like Michelle stated, there is absolutely NO pressure to donate, thoughts and prayers are just as valuable as any donation.

I will cover any and all Paypal fees for those who do donate and I think I just set up my Paypal to accept credit card payments. My Paypal e-mail is:

Susluvscaps@yahoo.com

Thank you for the thoughts, prayers and any donations for Elijah.

Merry Christmas!!!

Kind of what we're trying to achieve I think, but without pushing everyone to donate if they can't or don't want to...

I know it's a tough time of the year, but this little guy's story just breaks my heart. It really tugged on Susan's heart strings too

Nothing feels better than to know we can help him out...

We do the Angel Tree thing here each year and my entire office chips in for one child, buying much needed items and the cool stuff kids love...it feels great to help out when you can!

I miss you too...can I still email you at work? I haven't talked to you in ages

I know that Mom's very involved with her son and that so far, Christmas will be taken care of for Elijah and dinner for them both...no word yet on Mom, but I'd say if there's a way to give something to her, Susan would be the one to ask...I'll get with her and see if we can coordinate something. Right now, everything she's done/discussed is anonymous to Elijah and his Mom...let me get back with you on that...

Soooo good to see you! How's Abbi?

A gift card to a grocery store is already in the works. If you'd like to send something for his mommy though, that would be great.
