Since we are unable to be together to celebrate this year and will miss out on Yankee Swap fun and seeing the joy on Leah's face when she steals the most coveted gift from the youngest cousin, we thought maybe this year we could spread some Christmas joy in another way.
If we all take the money we would have spent on gifts and donate it instead, our sizeable fam could raise a sizeable chunk of cash!
We plan to split the money raised 50/50 between the two organizations below.
I will aim to withdraw the funds and make the donations on the 21st of December so that they reach each organization before Christmas.
Thank you in advance for contributing what you can.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
