Christmas Gifts for Poor Children

The beneficiary of these funds will be poor children from the Dominican Republic, specifically in the Puerto Plata province.

The funds will be used to purchase Christmas gifts for children who don't receive gifts for Christmas, Santa or otherwise.

We will need the funds by the end of October or early November to ensure gifts can be bought in the US and shipped.  Shipping can take 2-4 weeks, so we intend to send everything before Thanksgiving.

My family is going on a vacation for the purpose of giving these gifts and we will be making a similarly generous gift as those who are helping here.

The support will mean the most to the children in need, however, being that I grew up in the Dominican Republic and was one of these children, it will mean the world to me to be able to give back to make a child happy.

By myself, I think I can help quite a few children.  If I get additional backers, I can help many more and will be forever grateful for your generous gifts.  Please share my link with anyone who you think might be interested in helping.
