I’d like to thank you again for contributing to our adopt a family campaign this past holiday season.
We contributed to 3 single-mom families and a total of 6 kids ranging from 5 months to 16 years old.
From Steam game cards to scooters to bedazzlers to toy sets to family movie tickets to grocery cards to new clothes to diapers… to a radical Nintendo hat of which I’m supremely jealous… to new vacuum cleaners for each mother…
… with your help, 3 families were able to share a nice Christmas together.
I’m attaching a couple pics so our remote participants can enjoy a few moments from the local shopping and wrapping experience. (We had contributors from several states and, get this, multiple countries.)
Thank you so much for participating. It means a lot to me, and I’m sure it meant a lot to each mother and child as well.
PS — A few people asked: http://compass-sf.org/ is the organization I went through. Very well run campaign from them.
Adopting a family was one of my most important goals for 2014. We adopted 3 families, so it went better than I could have imagined.
Above is the report I sent to contributors.
It felt good and created an outcome that was larger than the initial vision. I can’t wait to do it again.
