My name is Karlee. I am 9 years old and a 3rd Grader at Sandstone Elementary. 2 years ago I decided that I really wanted to do something to help people who don't have warm coats, food & Christmas Presents. I came up with an idea to raise money by painting nails at my school's Christmas bazaar! I raised $1,500.00 painting nails  that first year and through this page to adopt families and students on the Sandstone Elementary Giving Tree. In 2013, I was able to raise $1500 which allowed me to adopt 5 total families purchasing gifts for 13 kids ranging in age from 3-15, purchased single gifts for 5 other kids ranging in age from 2-16, purchased 8 coats and 9 pairs of snow pants, and purchased $200 in gift cards for families for a total of 94 gifts for some of my fellow Sandstone classmates. In 2014, I was able to raise $2195 which allowed me to adopt 4 families, 25 people total.  I was able to purchase 128 presents for those 25 people along with giving each family a grocery gift card and a box of food.  I am extremely grateful for the money that I have been able to raise and help those in need. I want to keep doing the same thing every year and help even more families have a brighter Christmas. Last year & this year, all my money will be used to adopt families in need from The Big J Show's Santa Claus for a Cause that helps local kids/families have a better Christmas. Thanks so much for helping me help others. <3

Karlee would like to say a HUGE Thank You to all who helped her reach her goal & BLOW IT AWAY! $3,159 is what she ended up raising, thanks to all of you! Karlee worked her butt off painting nails this year by adding several events & all of the donors came through huge & helped her make Christmas possible for these families! She adopted 5 families, 24 people total! Those families will all get spoiled rotten with several hand picked gifts, gift cards & grocery gift cards! Thanks again for all your support! Without that support Karlee wouldn't be able to do what she does for these families! Merry Christmas!
