Our family and friends went above and beyond! I feel so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life. All Clay and I had to do was ask them to help out the DHR and they did without hesitation.
The gift table at Will's Party.
Here is what we collected with the help of our family and friends:
--87 Large Coloring Books
--24 Small Activity/Sticker Books
--4 packs of colored pencils
--6 packs of pens/pencils
--2 packs of markers
--69 boxes of crayons
We packed up all the items and we can't wait to deliver them to the DHR.
While this donation will be a tremendous help to our local DHR, I would also like to ask everyone to pray for the children who will receive these gifts. I know that Clay and I will be praying for them.
I hope in the future that we can adequately explain all this to Will and that he will understand why we chose to make donations to charity instead of him receiving gifts. Our family has been so blessed to see how something that seems so small to us can really impact the life of someone else.
