My family and I have moved to Naples, Florida, for my health. The good thing I'm discovering is that my health is improving and my pain level is much decreased. The other thing I'm discovering, though, is that coordinating four or five Colorado events, and the huge amount of fundraising needed from the surrounding communities, is difficult when you're in a different state! I'm asking that if you live and/or have kids in Districts 2, 3, 8, or 11, you talk to the people you know at the schools, and in the community, and let them know who we are and what we're doing, and ask them to donate to Giving Kids. We are really in need of cash donations to begin the purchasing rounds for this year, and to have the confidence to be able to commit to last year's schools to come again this year and once again provide this wonderful program to their underpriveleged students. I am also asking any of you reading this who aren't in these districts, but are interested in what we're doing and are so moved, to talk to your friends, family, and co-workers and ask them for donations. Everyone, please remember - it only costs $5 to sponsor a child! Everyone you know can afford to give $5. Everyone I know can afford to give $5. Some can afford quite a bit more. If we all just ask the folks we know, Giving Kids can meet its commitments this year. As always, I thank you for joining me to help the most disadvantaged kids in these Colorado Springs, Security, and Fountain districts keep the spirit of giving alive this year.
