Simply 7 NEW GOAL

Hello!!

I am back, it has been a while, my mom had a baby and wasn't able to help me for a while, and I haven't learned to type very well yet so I wasn't able to update anything.

But I wanted to tell you all about a new goal I have.

It all started when this really super nice man, Mr Jim wanted to donate some toys.  He had done this before and had given some REALLY neat stuff for kids.  Cups, dolls and such.  Well he had teddy bears and necklaces for me.  That is what got me going.  I was so excited by this I wanted to do something bigger this time.

That is when I came up with Winter Warm Bags.

By NOVEMBER 28 I want to have enough items to make 100 bags!!  Each bag will have






Coat
Hat
Boots
Mittens

So I really need 100 of each of those!!  They can be gentelly used or new.  Or you can donate with the button at the bottom of this page and I will go to second hand stores and buy what I need.

These items are in addition to what I always put in the bag, which is socks, a snack, kids toothpaste, kids toothbrush, kids shampoo. So while the main needs I am asking for is the winter items, if you have any snacks or shampoo or kids toothpaste, I could use that as well.

PLEASE consider donating winter items for these bags, I would really like to hand them out before the weather gets really cold.

I got my first donation yesterday and I about jumped out of my skin!!  I was SOOOOOO excited!!  It was a really generous donation of a girls set of each and a boys set.

YES!!

I KNOW I can do this with your help!!

And THANK YOU to whoever put the donations on my doorstep!!

Keep checking here because  I will update you on my progress.

Thanks!
Alia

New goal

This is mom writing.

Alia just got (5 months ago) a new baby brother so I haven't been able to help her keep this blog updated

However with a lot of begging from her I have promised to try harder...as she learns to type herself.

She has become quite passionate and has a new goal...one that seems lofty!

100 coats, hats, booth, and mittens to create winter warm bags!

She wants this by mid November to be able to pass em out before major snow flies...

Wow!!

Soooo please be sure to comment if you can help out! New or used is fine! Children's winter items.

PAY PAL will be up and running for only simply 7 donations on Wednesday...

Thanks for following the dreams to change the world by one ill girl!

It's been a long time

I'm so sorry I haven't written ( mom speaking...I type for Alia and I am expecting our 4th among other things and have not gotten around to writing Even tho she's wanted to...)
Even though it's been a long time, I've been doing lots of things. I have continued to hand out birthday bags. I even got a response from one of the moms of a boy who got my bag. I'll share that work you on the next few days:)

Over Christmas my great uncle john gave me a big donation in memory of my grandpa who just died.  

It came at a really good time, I'm going to start needing donations again.

I was super excited and it gave me a new excitement for pushing this even farther!!

Thanks for reading!! Let me know if you do, I love encouragement!

Ding Dong Ditch...A family in need


I heard that there was a family in need and I decided to help them using Simply 7.  They needed simple things like food, toilet paper, and basic stuff.  Also new school clothes.

I am glad I did it.

Me and my best friend and my sisters and parents gathered it all in a box got in the car.  Daddy drove the car real slow and quiet toward their place.  We tiptoed to the door and set the box down.  Everyone ran away, and I stayed there so I could ring the doorbell and run away myself.  I am glad I could do it.  And before we did it, I felt kind of nervous.  But after I ran away I was so excited I wished I could see them get it.

Then we went home and my best friend and I played.

A stranger...

Read my newspaper article and then emailed me.  I talked back and forth with him, then he told me how he did birthday parties and magic shows and stuff like that.  Then he offered to let me come over to his house with my daddy and he gave me a HUGE box 2 feet wide three feet long.  When I opened it I was SOOOO surprised!!  There were dolls, balls, bags, bouncy balls, dinasour eggs, cups and other stuff!!!  SO much stuff for homeless children!!!!  He offered to someohow partner up with me to throw a party for kids.  I want to choose one special family that needs a lot and throw them one.

Its when my little sisters class made a big blanket that I want to give that one special family.  I dont know who they are yet.  But I'm ready to do it!

I am very thankful for kind strangers like Mr. Williams
If you are Mr Jim Williams reading this, thank you SOOOOOOOO much!!!!

Once at Church...

Pastor Josh asked me to share with the church by interviewing me about Simply 7.  He showed them my new interview.  After Josh interviewed me and told the church that if I could do it they could do something like that.  It excited me that others might do nice things too.

Then when I got out of my kids church part I got a BIG surprise!!  The wonderful people of the church had donated a surprise offering of $515!!!    That is MORE money than I have EVER seen!!  I couldn't believe it!  I am so exicted to buy stuff for the homeless kids.  Everything they could need and want!!  They will have great birthday now!!

Then the next week.  I brought a note saying thank you to the church.  My mom was there, but I wasn't I was in kids church.  She said there was lots of ohh and ahhs.

 I want to keep helping the homeless!!

Thank you City Church!!
God Bless!

Did I tell you that...

The other day I got a letter in the mail for simply 7 from Ga (grandmas) best friend mrs guetzlof.  I was so excited to see a card made of orange paper with simply 7 written up and down and then cut out a newspaper article (ill tell you more later about that) of me and put the picture in the big space.  So she gave me one check for the homeless and another check for ICE CREAM FOR THE FAMILY!
