I just wrapped up this year's Pay It Forward program! I was able to help 8 families this year with the help of my customers. I also was able to give some great Stampin' Up! products to some very generous customers. They should begin to get those packages this week.
I don't know much about the families that benefited from the program because they are recommended by customers across the country when I call for an address I usually hear a bit of their story. One was a single mom facing breast cancer and another who just had a premature baby last week. I had several single dads this year too.
I send the gifts our anonymously but I did receive an email on Christmas morn:
Just wanted to let you know that I got word round about that my nephew received your gift and he was happy beyond belief!!!
You have made a huge difference and a believer out of someone who has had such a hard time! Thank you so much for your generosity
And may the good Lord bless you in a very special way!!"
It feels good to know that we helped so many ~ this season is about love and giving, so thank-you for helping me make it just a bit brighter for families in need.
