Make the Holidays Bright x THREE!

Since 2013, I've been raising money around the holidays for the Sosa family-- I was originally introduced to them when Yoniery wrote a letter to Santa and mailed it to City Hall. They are super appreciative and kind, and part of New York's population of working poor. Please help me give them an amazing Christmas!  This year, I want to include 2 other very worthy causes -- making this year's fundraising campaign a trifecta of giving!! The second cause is for a wonderful friend who, in his spare time, volunteers his time to cook food for the homeless, the elderly, and other underserved populations. He entirely self-funds this effort. Please help me help him buy food and supplies for his work!  Finally, I know an amazing mom who I went to HS with who calls Florida her home. Last month, she adopted 2 grammar-school-aged siblings who have spent the majority of their young lives living apart in foster care.  It has not been easy for them.  My friend, who was herself adopted, has started the process of adopting them-- they now live together, with her, and have a loving home. I would love to give her the opportunity to buy them presents and have a magical christmas-- something they have never experienced.
