Review for TRUE PASSION, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Hello Friends,

I am happy to announce that Christmas Come True has finally found a little home to work out of instead of my guest bedroom. I would love to take this opportunity to tell you about it.

As you probably know, Christmas Come True is a non-profit organization, who for the past 2 years has helped Flagler County families by providing Christmas dinner, new clothes, gifts and filled Christmas stockings. This past Christmas we were able to help 86 families and 255 children.

We would like to extend our help by starting the second part of our mission, “A Frame of Mind”. It is more than just an office, it will be a center where I will be planning the events for Christmas Come True. It is where I will collect and disburse all the information about other non-profits in Flagler County that are helping the community. “A Frame of Mind” will offer classes in Art, “how to do” and “how to fix” workshops. Eventually we hope to add counseling services and much more. “A Frame of Mind” will be a think tank to explore new ways to save money, get a job or start a new business.

In addition to all of the above, “A Frame of Mind” is a retail store offering the works of local artisans and promoting local authors with book signings. I will also carry Stonewall Kitchen Specialty Foods, an incredibly good line of food and home products - I am proud to say this is my step-son’s wonderful business. We are so excited to have the opportunity to help local artisans and authors and as a bonus each sale helps us raise money to help families in Flagler County.

We want to be a welcomed addition to historic downtown Flagler Beach. “A Frame of Mind” is located at 208 B South Central Avenue. (across from City Hall and The Flagler Beach Historical Museum) We are a brightly colored building that houses Gallery of Local Art and Bahama Mama’s. If you are in the area please come by for a peek.

I look forward to sharing the news of our success and my visions of what this little center can do to help the families of Flagler County.

Sincerely,

Nadine King, Founder
Christmas Come True, Inc.

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

This past Christmas, we provided 86 families, 255 children with a Christmas dinner, new clothes, gifts, and stocking filled with goodies. We also helped with electric and gas bills.

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

I would hope to receive donations to help us grow and help more families that have unemployed parents. There is so much we could do to help them get back on their feet and help them keep their self esteem.
