Wishin' and Hopin'

(I love that song!)

The letters looking for sponsors went home with all the kids at the school today. I'm up to seventeen kids, plus one teacher has identified another family that she wants to sign up to receive help.

I am so nervous. What if the whole thing falls flat on its face? What if no one calls, or only a couple of people do? I will be so humiliated if that happens, not only because I offered help to people and then couldn't get any, but also because that would make me part of a community of people I wouldn't be very proud of.

I'm also so excited! What if it goes so well that every child on the list gets a sponsor, and I have a few sponsors to spare? I will be so thrilled and overjoyed that I could do this, and so proud to be part of our school community.

Come on, phone. Start ringing.

i'm w/ andreanna--if your local folks don't come through spread the word online.

I am with AndreAnna- we'll help! I would imagine most people will too if they aren't hurting themselves with this economy. You could always see if local churches/businesses want to help out, especially those with ties to the school.

I hope it all works out! Hubs office always works with the local Adopt-A-Family program~we're provided with information about 2 families and people can volunteer to provide items that are then wrapped and delivered to the families.

Definitely let us all know if you don't get enough support. Just set up a PayPal link or something and we can chip in!
