\"NM\" Give Back for Christmas fundraiser

If you came across this page you probably know about our humble mission as friends to adopt three families for Christmas. As friends we feel extremely blessed to be able to give back to families in need and hopefully empower them, even if for a brief moment, by SURPRISING them with a Christmas they may have not otherwise had.

Our goal is to raise $1,600 (hopefully more) in order to buy a Christmas tree, ornaments, groceries (for Christmas Dinner) and gifts for the family by \"delivery\" day: December 18th. Our hopes are that you help us reach our goal and encourage others to give back to our mission that simply started over drinks with friends.  Thanks to our friend James Montoya, we have already identified three families that we will adopt. Thank you in advance for your help and most importantly for your friendship. Happy Holidays.
