Winter warm shopping!

Today I went shopping with the money I got in donations for the winter warm bags.

This lady at one of the stores we went to was so awesome and really nice! She let me have 20% off anytime I shop there for Simply 7!!! I KNOW this made it so I could afford soooo much more for the bags, you should see ALLLLLL the coats I got!!! She was just so helpful and nice!! Made me happy. 

I'm so excited because of this and with all of you and your donations I just KNOW I reached my goal!! 

My doctor even donated this week!! I was so excited by his generous donation I jumped up and gave him a hug!! I thanked him soooo much!!

And these....aren't they beautiful?!?!? There were soooooo many of them!!! This wonderful lady saw the news story and decided to not only donate gloves but knitted all these amazing hats!! Don't they look warm???!

I'm really excited to deliver the bags!!! My mom said we will put the bags together this week and deliver them on the 26. She has been working with the girl at the shelter and this day is the best to deliver.

I'm giddy to deliver and make difference!

A delivery date has been set!!

Mom here a second... I just wanted to thank you for your patience in reading this. We travel home for extended time over the holidays so Alia hasn't been able to without further ado......

I'm so excited!! I have so much to tell you!! Ummmm ok...when we got home, ALL THIS was in my living room!! Can you believe it?! I'm not sure who all gave but I wanted to give a HUGE thanks to my soccer coach Mrs. Sara for contacting the whole team to find donations!!! And she dropped them I know lots of these are my teams. THANK YOU ALL!!!

Sooooo I finally have a delivery date and I'm so excited about it! It couldn't come soon enough for me!! I'm working with a shelter.... So while I won't get to meet the kids I'm helping I will be able to get specific sizes so I know "who" the bags are going to!! I also know that there are more children than my 100 bags so I'm SOOO excited to be able to bless so many!!!

I can't wait to tell you about it!! 

As always if you have anything last mi ute I'll take it!! Mom is taking me shopping part on Saturday and part on Monday....then we are delivering Saturday the 17!!!!!!  YAY!! 

Please keep this project and the kids getting stuff in your prayers. Thank you!!
