FlagUS Salty Cajun Christmas Drive, 2012!!!

Well fellas, it's that time of year again. You know the time when our wives start getting all edgy about shopping and making sure we hang dangerously on the edge of our roof so that we can hang a bunch of lights up...Half of which never seem to work!

While we whine and complain about how our kids want the most expensive toys on the shelves, that our wives have gone completely insane with Black Friday and that there is no time to get everything in place, there is another man who can't do anything for Christmas this year. There's another family that won't be able to have a REAL Christmas dinner because money is too tight. There's another child who just wants a sense of normalicy. This is where we come in!...

Last year was a huge success in our Christmas Drive!!! We, as a site, raised in the range of $3100 that funded two families with the Christmas that, otherwise, they would not have had! We helped pay utility bills, bought clothes, toys, food for the pantry, provided a Real Christmas dinner and, if only for that day, we brought two families comfort and normalicy!

I have a firsthand account of one of the deliveries and, let me tell you, it was the single most fulfilling day in my life, next to my kids being born. The astonished look of parents and kids alike was as moving as anything I've ever seen. There wasn't a dry eye in the crowd.

Ladies and gentlemen, I ask that you get on board again this year to make this another successful drive. There is no contribution too small! As I understand it, we already have two deserving families picked out. If we can raise more, perhaps there could be a third!

Let's do this fellas!!

If anyone has any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at my office/shop @ 225-647-2772 or, on my cell. It is 580-716-4995.

I'll post my PayPal info in a minute.

We need volunteers to help make this happen. I know Eman volunteered to cook for one family, but we will need people to shop, wrap, and deliver presents. Also to cook for the West side family. Last year my mom along with Shawn and Bridget Braquet helped tremendously on the family I was in charge of and I'd like to thank them agian.

My PayPal acct is c_fisher79@yahoo.com. That's c underscore fisher 79.

Like Johnny said, this is a very big process so, if there is anyone who would like to volunteer for either family, please let me know! Eman and, Mrs. Eman have already offered their support in cooking this year's dinner again! Thank you so much!

One more note...

We will keep the format the same as it was last year. We will list everyone who donated but, not the amount that was donated. We will also list any businesses who donate but, again, not the amount. We will collect until Dec 15. In the days following, we will put all the names of donors in a hat and do drawings for various prizes that have yet to be determined.

Let's make this another big success! Thanks in advance and, again, please feel free to contact me or any site admin with any questions or concerns. My info is listed in the OP.

And, again...One more note.

When you send any contribution through PayPal, please put your screen name as it appears here on SC so that I know who's name to put into the drawing.

Regards,

Corey

Also send your PayPal donation as a gift so the fees will not be taken out.

I see you guys on here killing the trout if any one wants to donate some to this cause I have a commercial vacuum sealer and am willing to clean them for the cause and freeze them. Most of us on here are fortunate enough to have fish very often let's keep in mind thaws families that might not get the chance to have a nice fish fry

Thanks
Jimmy
