I've talked in the past about Joe's Addiction and my friend, Jamie Zumwalt. Channel 4 picked them as a Pay it Forward recipient and that was fun! But $400 goes quickly and that was a while ago. And I love giving presents!
Here's where I need your help. I want to put together 50 presents to give away. I want them to be a blessing to those who receive them so I enlisted Jamie's help in making this list.
I'll buy the boxes and do the wrapping, you can help me with filling them!
Wanting 50 of each: So far I have
hats - 41
gloves - 46 pairs
socks - 30 pairs
handwarmers - 46
scarves - 31
blankets - 26
chapstick - 57
earbuds - 16
The first 7 are necessities for those without homes, the earbuds are just for fun and providing a little fun for these precious folks makes me happy.
So will you help? Leave a comment on this blog, I'll get in touch. If you know me in real life, call me or stop by my house. Catch me on Twitter @glynis_crawford. I'll need everything by February 1st.
We can do this and it will be the best 50 year celebration I can imagine. I will have cake at Joe's on Sunday, February 23rd at 3:00 pm and you can come share in the joy. Joe's is located at 1806 SE 59th, just east of I-35.
AND Thank you.
