FOSTER CARE COALITION OF GREATER ST LOUIS INC
March 23, 2011

This is in regards to the little wishes for Christmas from the channel 5 "a place to call home" program. I intended to give little wishes to a couple of children in the name of people I know. I went through the process for one child age 17 because I know these kids are aged out and thought giving to older children would make them know someone cared.

I then picked another child wanting the same thing, went through the process and was told there were no more of this item available. When I tried to review my donation I found the first child had been deleted and this would go to the second child.

Not only did this mess up my Christmas giving (I didn't know who and if they would get an acknowledgement ) but my heart broke knowing these and probably others would think no one cared enough to pick and get them a gift and not understand it was a lack of resources.

I'm sure a lot goes in to arranging this program, but wanted to let you know so perhaps this disappointment. Thanks, Kathy Burns
