Update....Time is Short but Miracles are Happening


I haven't posted updates in awhile because I am not getting comments here but for those who don't participate on Facebook you need to know! We have over 700 members now!


Pennsylvania turns red! A reminder, the green states are ones where we have people who have committed to create but we have not received any ornaments. The grey states are ones where we have no one committed to creating.


IF YOU ARE CREATING IN COLORADO PLEASE SEND ALL YOUR ORNAMENTS TO KENTUCKY. IF YOU ARE IN KENTUCKY PLEASE SEND ALL YOUR ORNAMENTS TO COLORADO. We know you want to support your local neighbors, but we have enough ornaments in KY for everyone in KY to have one from their home state. The same is true of CO. What we need now is for Colorado to know Kentucky is thinking of them and Kentucky to know they are remembered in Colorado. So, Colorado and Kentucky keep creating!

AND….WE ARE NOW ABLE TO SERVE SURVIVORS OF THE TORNADO IN TENNESSEE!


Only 11 days until Halloween, our target date for ornaments to be to Colorado and Kentucky! We need your help! We are behind our numbers from last year and we are trying to serve 400 more families than we did in 2021! You still have time to create a few ornaments and to get them sent in.


FOR MAILING… please compare costs online or use the service, https://ship.pirateship.com/ or other service. It saves lots of money!


Following the steps below really helps us.

1. Please package all ornaments individually in cellophane or plastic baggie.

2. Include a note with every ornament. Notes should include the city and state where they were crafted and a short message. It can be as simple as Merry Christmas. if you are creating with a group, you may include the name of the group as well.

3. Please divide your ornaments and mail half to Colorado and half to Kentucky.

4. If you cannot afford to send to more than one location, please PM or ask on the Facebook page where they are needed most.

5. We are only accepting ornaments. Other Christmas crafts and decorations are too large to distribute.

6. All ornaments need to be hand made. Our goal is to help survivors understand there are many willing to spend time making a gift just for them. It is important for them to know they have not been forgotten.

7. Please be sure your ornaments do not move around in the box. As you gently rock the box back and forth if you can feel ornaments moving, please add bubble wrap or air-filled pillows to cushion them.

8. Thanks for including a note with the total number of ornaments in your box. This really helps our coordinators when they begin assembling the gift bags.
