Our Beginning

It started as a young boy's curiousity and has grown into a Grass Roots effort where the community comes together to help others in need.

It makes me happy to share the holiday spirit with others.

God Bless

My daughter is asking me when is the gift wrapping and gift giving this year. Evidently, last year's activity really touched her.

That experience brings wonder to me, she is not expecting too much anymore for Christmas after finding out for herself that there are a lot of kids that do not have even a quarter of wha she has.

God has truly blessed you with the gift of giving and spreading the message of goodwill and Service Before Self! It was such a wonderful afternoon and serves to remind us all what Christmas is all about. Luke job well done!! We're so proud of you.

Awesome Kid!

Awesome Mom!

WOW, you made me cry! I can't believe first of all how big Luke has gotten. The second thing is that I remember the first time he did this and reading the newspaper clipping. Third of all did you have to remind me that it was 76 degrees , right on the bottom of the screen....I also can't believe you made them video you dancing. I am so proud of the both of you for doing an excellent job for all the kids less fortunate than us. I love you guys and I wish you ,Howard and Luke a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year
