The Most Wonderful Time of the Year 12.04.2013
By: Holly Livengood, Marketing and Research Coordinator
I think we can all recall our favorite childhood memory of the holidays. For me it was baking cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve with my mom and waking up in the morning to see them all gone, I guess you could say my baking skills began at an early age. Unfortunately for more than 10,800 Oklahoma children in foster care, the holidays are a time that reminds them they are separated from their families which is a tough reality to face. While we can’t give these children their ultimate wish; to go home, we can remind them that they are not forgotten and to me, that is the ultimate gift. I challenge you to forgo your morning latte for the month of December and adopt a child’s wish list instead. I guarantee you the feeling you get from giving back is much better than the feeling any Peppermint Mocha could give. Your gift is more than just a toy or new clothing, it is a symbol of hope, a reminder that someone out there cares about them and that is what the holidays are all about. Share the love, adopt a child’s wish list today.
