Bay Area Family Wishlists - Year 2

Hi everyone,

Last year - My family and I did a fundraising for Bay Area Family Wishlist and the turnout was very successful. We have been trying to give back to the community as much as possible after our daughter was born and we realized how difficult it is to raise a family.

This year - We would like to do the same by helping fulfill the wishlists of a few families that are facing financial difficulties during this Holiday season. We have rec'd an overwhelming amount of wishlists and we can't fulfill them on our own. We are looking to the communitiy for help. A lot of these families have kids and full time minimum wages jobs. With the increasing living costs in the bay area, they can barely stay afloat. Let's join together and help make their Holidays season a little extra special this year. 

Please, anything would help. If you would like to pick a specific gift to gift the family, you can reach out to me directly to coordinate as well. My family and I would love to fulfill all the wishlists and would appreciate any help we can get.
