Help Ashley Make Shelter Kids Smile

Hi, my name is Ashley Balber and I want to raise enough money to buy all the kids who live at the Hannah House, a Cornerstone Community Outreach Family Shelter, a present for Christmas.  The Hannah House shelters 55 beds, 18 families and 30 children.  It has been in operation since 1989 and helps families move from homeless to housing.  I have been donating my toys, clothes and books to them for years.  For my Bat Mitzvah, I wanted to raise money to be able to buy the kids what they actually wish for.  The shelter is going to give me a wish list for the kids.  All of the money I rasie will allow me to buy these kids some of the things they want.  I will then wrap all of the gifts and help deliver them to the families.  Please donate as much as you feel comfortable in order to help me make these kids SMILE.  Any extra funds raised will be used to buy the kids birthday presents throughout the year.  Thank you.
