With the help of a couple hundred friends and acquaintances, we made the holidays of over 1000 children living in homelessness, shelters or tough circumstances just a little bit brighter.x

Dear ELF’s, I am very thankful that you all took time out to spread some Christmas with my friends and I. The gifts was beautiful, and I know we all had fun playing with them. I want you to know that we are grateful for your help.

Please accept my grateful and sincere thank you for the gift cards you sent me. I cannot even put into words how much these are appreciated. As you may be aware, I have had some tragedy in my life. And being a disabled mother of two, and widowed, life has proven to be quite challenging to me. There has been 0 money for any type of gifts again this year. And all the money that I am able to get, goes directly to bills and oil. Although this is understood, and my children are well aware of my struggles, these gift cards will enable me to buy a little something special. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

When I was about 12 I helped hand deliver the donations to the first ELF families. I remember the looks of excitement and maybe even relief I saw on parents’ faces, and felt like I was Santa himself spreading the best that the holiday spirit has to offer.
