Well it is that time again! YES it is! CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!!!!



Total Raised for 2012: $2211


Goal is $3000

2011 Total Raised: $2875



If you are a seasoned veteran of R2R then you know we help unfortunate children every year get gifts at Christmas Time. If you are new to R2R since last Christmas then you are in for a treat! Let me give you the run down. Every Christmas for the past 5 years we have had a donation drive and the members of R2R always show their true colors and give above and beyond the call to duty for kids in need.

Last year alone we raised over $2875.00 and bought gifts for over 20 KIDS!!!! As many of you know I am a Pastor and every year we see many, many children who are in need and being that I am a Pastor and owner of this site it gives us a special opportunity. First off we make sure that all families are in need and that the kids really wouldn't have much for Christmas otherwise. Secondly we are able to buy all the gifts with no taxes because we are a non-profit. That saved us over $200 last year alone! Third we mark each gift so that the gifts are not allowed to be taken back to the stores in exchange. Sadly there are parents who would take kids gifts back to the store and use the money for other, less productive things. Hate to have to do that but this is for the kids. We also buy nice gifts!

I would LOVE for us to reach the goal of $3000 this year! We can do it! There is nothing that makes you feel better than to give to someone in need. As in years past I will document the process with photos of the gifts we buy and a total cost to validate the spending. Everything will be done with the utmost integrity. We had so much fun buying the gifts for the kids! Here are some pics from last year.

Thanks for the donations! We're up to $100 but a long long way off! Nothing better than giving to needy children at Christmas!
