OK... Trying to help out Vic now.....
« on: December 09, 2008, 02:20:34 pm »
OK GUYS......

Let me make a plea on VIcks behalf....

Coming from the video that I did last year at Christmas... Melinda really really loved the Charity Report/Stories, etc.   I heard we only had like less than 20.....  last year over 40. She was so thrilled that her backups were such giving and caring people who not only cared about her, their fellow backups, but yet they cared about the community and those less fortunate....

Can we please make this a success...... I know economics is causing some people to not be able to give toys, dinners, gifts, etc.... BUT......... you can  give YOURSELF and give your TIME.    Usually those are the most important anyway......   

Please write a little report and send to Vicster asap.  I am going to Nashville to  play Santa on like the 22nd or 23rd and I wanna take a BIG BOOK of stuff with me...... 

Thanks so much guys....................

LT... I am sorry I started a new thread.... Just trying to reach people, ok....  Big hug Big hug Big hug Big hug

Thank you, Holly!   Bowing Women

You don't have to spend money on a project, just write something inspirational of what the holidays means to you and what you do on Christmas.    Holly said that last year Mel waited to read the album, because she was afraid she'd start crying.   Crying

I need them posted in the thread no later than December 15th at midnight, I'm giving you another day.  Thumbs Up

This is what Mel wrote about last year's album:

Now on to the real kicker … the scrapbook with the stories of how you all changed lives this Christmas. I read every single one and just kept on crying. I don't know if you remember Oprah's "Wildest Dreams" segment last year, but it was a time where she made people's dreams come true. I remember watching that and crying out of joy every time someone got what they really needed or wanted. Well, I prayed right then and there for God to give me the resources to begin to make people's dreams come true and to really touch lives. When I prayed, I was thinking I was praying for finances … little did I know, I was actually praying for people like you to be my hands and my heart to people that really needed it. That is such a huge honor! I could not have asked for a better gift. You have no idea how much that touched me.

So, thank you for being an answer to prayer......


The guilt trip is on!   HAR

Come on, you guys; I'm here to smoke you out!

Unfortunately, I am not able to give any money this yr and I can barely give time helping others because it's so hard to drive and get anywhere due to my shoulder. BUT I am still planning on doing something for this project. If I can do it, anyone can! Come on Backups-- lets make this happen!!!! Big hug Big hug Big hug Big hug
