Bless Crissy This Christmas

We all know and love Cris and have experienced her generosity at some point. Cris would give her last penny, shirt off her back, or whatever she had to take care of those she cares about, and even those she doesn't know. She's done blanket drives for years, volunteered many times, drives around with new socks and packs of cookies to hand out to homeless people she sees, and shares from a place of abundance rather than a place of scarcity.

So last week, while we were out shopping for many of you, driving from store to store to store with her long list of people, her car started making a funny noise. We drove to a repair garage she'd heard about from friends and after assessment, her transmission has to be replaced. We all know that is thousands of dollars (at least $4000+). Her car just went out of warranty and while she's working with GM, they won't budge.

So let's give back to her. If we get 200 people to donate $20, it's covered. If we get 400 people to donate $10, it's covered.

We know that this is a tough time of year AND that some of you just can't donate, but for those of you that can, please do asap!

 She will absolutely KILL us for doing this, as she'd rather live life giving than receiving, but we really don't care. We want to bless her.
