We need your help raising $1,500 (***We raised the bar!***) for a family in need so that they can have a very merry Christmas!
We are sponsoring a local Philadelphia family of about 8-10 people in size through Salvation Army's Adopt-A-Family program. The Adopt-A-Family Program was designed to help individuals who are in desperate need of financial assistance, hope, and caring during the holiday season. We are collecting donations through this site and also in person at Dungarees for Families: The Denim Tuxedo Pub Crawl on December 8, 2012 in Conshohocken, PA.
The family we are sponsoring consists of 9 family members: Bettie (age 44), Eugene (22), Kimberly (19), Virginia (13), Sapphire (11), Gregory (9), Johnta (5), Sobreia (2), and Ava (1). We have received a list of clothing needs and other items from their wish list. Please let me know if you would like to donate an item from their wish list rather than make a cash donation. Any leftover funds will be used to buy more clothes and fixings for a Christmas dinner.
We need your support! Here's how you can help:
Donate online here at gofundme.com. No donation is too small or too big! We appreciate each and every penny that you can share.
Attend Dungarees for Families: The Denim Tuxedo Pub Crawl. On December 8, 2012 at 5:00pm, we will be gathering in Conshohocken for a pub crawl that will help to raise money for our cause. Revelers are required to wear a Denim Tuxedo (head-to-toe denim) in order to help call attention to our group and cause. We will be collecting donations in person throughout the event. Please join us. We will look ridiculous, but it will be a ridiculously good time. (Bar location sequence information forthcoming)
Spread the word so that we can spread the Christmas cheer. $1,500 is a lofty goal, and we need you all to champion our cause. Please direct people towards this site: http://www.gofundme.com/DFF2012
Thanks in advance for your help and donations! Looking forward to seeing everyone at Dungarees for Families!
