I'm Sorry For Being A Bad Blogger!

I haven't blogged in a while, not because awesome things haven't been happening but because awesome things have been happening at an incredible pace!

The 50 Teens 4 Christmas event is coming along splendidly. We hit a rough patch where we lost some major sponsors and weren't bringing any money in. So Jodi did what she does best, she poured out her heart, she cried, she got angry and people heard, listened and started donating and backing us up. We're happy to say that we now have some sponsors, some money and the event is all planned. now we just need to pack the bags and anxiously await the big day!

I want to give the biggest thanks possible to all of our sponsors and donors. I'm not going to name everyone right now because I'm sure to miss someone, but you know who you are. If you've never had to go to bed hungry, slept in a shelter or the vestibule of a bank, then you may never know how truly you've touched the lives of these kids. On their behalf, I thank you.

Keep watching the #50teens4christmas hashtag on Twitter. We're still in need of some items, mostly hand me down clothes and shoes to set up our shopping area. If you can clean out your closets, get your kids to do the same and pass it on to us we'd greatly appreciate it!

I can't wait until Dec 14 to pass on the awesomeness of the people of Waterloo Region to these teenagers! Thank you all for supporting us!
