ALLIANCE FOR CHILDREN INC
April 18, 2011

During the last 3 years my husband and I have donated a Thanksgiving basket or a few presents for Christmas. This last Christmas we were told that many families were on the waiting list and had no sponsors. We sponsored two young boys who only wanted shoes and nice clothes to wear to church. They didn't ask for toys or electronic games like so many young children their age. We were honored to help out this family and it made me appreciate everything my family and I have. I was glad to give back in some small way.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I met the husband of the Alliance for Children coordinator and I also received a personal Thank You Note for the Christmas gifts I bought for two young boys. It was very rewarding to know these gifts would go to a couple of young boys in need and who would appreciate it very much.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

let friends and family know that The Alliance for Children needs more sponsors during the holidays so that no child will go without a gift on Christmas morning.
