Pink Christmas

Ok, I'm going to be brave and take the plunge. Deadline is this Thursday. Anyone want to support me ( I mean- "join in the fun") by signing up too?

If you've been to Kristi's blog before you know all about it. For those who don't it's a way to help a family in need and get lots of goodies for yourself in the process...

From the Pink Christmas blog...

This year Pink Christmas will be sponsoring a entire family - they are amazing. They have immigrated to Washington D.C. from Africa and are beginning their new life. They have 4 amazing children. Ages 12, 8, 2 and just a few months old. The sweet mother just had twins but one passed away and the other little boy is still in the hospital weighing just a few pounds. They need everything that you could think of to begin a new life in a new home. All the money will go to helping them get the necessities to do just that.
Here is how it works.
Pink Christmas is an (*optional*) $15.00 donation. All proceeds will go to our Pink Christmas Family. (over the next few months you will have a chance to get to know them better)
To sign up you must leave a comment on this post and then send an email to apinkchristmas@yahoo.com {this is how I will double check to make sure I don't miss anyone}
By September 1st you will receive in the mail a pink envelope with the name of your Pink Christmas Girlfriend. (ssshh remember this is a secret) You will also receive a lot of goodies from all of our Pink Christmas Sponsors. (they are the only way that this is even possible)
Copy the below questions in your email along with your answers. This questionnaire will be sent only to your Pink Christmas girlfriend for her to start working on your gift.
The deadline for the completion of the project is December 1st.
Please plan on sending your completed gift to your girlfriend by December 5th
I then encourage you to send your gift wrapped gift by December 5th, (with delivery confirmation) so it will have plenty of time to arrive to its new home. Then no peeking until Christmas morning.
The rules of the gift giving… well there really are no rules to making the gift. But I encourage you to use your creative juices, have part or all of your gift made by hand and share a piece of you. Keep in mind there is someone out there thinking of you during this time and creating something just for you. Only give something that you too would want to receive. And Yes you can have someone make the gift for you. (many of our Pink Christmas Sponsors would love to help you with that)

{Come on Hol- you said you'd do it! Anyone else?}

I'll do it! But know now that I'm not very creative...so who knows what I'll be giving?

I love this idea.

Nikki said...

Beth- Holly & I were discussing the same thing. Do we make something on our own- or buy something homemade? I believe Holly mentioned that if you were in a bind, Dan could make something for you. :)

Shan said...

Nik I know Abby has already signed up and I am going to as well! Though I have no idea what I will make either!

Holly said...

YIKES!?!? I am so nervous, but here I go!! Sunny- you HAVE to sign up. You are the most natural talent we have! Make them a denim quilt! :)

Jill said...

I'm glad you reminded me, I forgot tomorrow is the deadline.

P.S. Tell Holly not to be nervous!

Jill said...

Also, you don't have to make something.

Okay I'm late on reading this....but if it's not too late...I would love to be a part of helping out.
