I am so excited I am shaking and I don’t think it’s from too much coffee.
I just received a press release, which is indicative of the biggest outpouring of love I have seen in years. Santa for the Smokies is a non-profit organization, partnered with Servidy to Bring Smiles to Those Who Need Them the Most. These organizations are working hard to providing a true Christmas miracle for the people who have lost everything in the Gatlinburg fires. The idea is to provide gifts for Christmas.
Obviously, they need our help. The idea came about when a local mother was watching a local TV station and heard a little girl had lost her teddy bear. The bear was found, due to the diligence and heart of firefighters. The mother naturally thought of all the children who had not been so fortunate in recovering a favorite toy.
I’m attaching the press release, which I managed to get before anyone else and you can read it first right here! Go to Facebook and try to make someone’s Christmas and you will be glad you did. You’ll get all the info you need to see just exactly what is needed and what to do.
