Thank you to everyone who helped out last year with our Christmas gift wish list. Through all your support, we ended up providing gifts for approximately 240 kids, and made the holiday season really special for our wounded service members and their families. For a tenth year, we are teaming with Our Military Kids to bring some holiday cheer to the children of our injured or fallen service members. Our goal is to provide gifts for at least 75 families.
I’m hoping everyone will check out this list and consider serving as Santa for one of the families. It’s a great opportunity for a company, office or group to consider. All you have to do is email Santa@BobNelsonTeam.com indicating which family from the list found here: http://bit.ly/2018XMASList that you would like to “adopt” this Christmas. We ask that you budget a minimum of $150 per child. Once you have chosen a family, Santa will email you their contact information so that you can find out what the kids have on their wish lists. You can then either purchase the gifts locally, wrap and send them or you can order them on line and have the gifts shipped to the family.
I would encourage you to visit www.ourmilitarykids.org to learn more about this wonderful grassroots organization and all they do.
The list will be posted until Christmas and will be updated daily. Even if you can’t help out this year, you can follow our progress on the site.
We hope you can find it in your heart to help us out with this great cause this year. It will make a tremendous difference in a family’s life.
