Hi Everyone,

No card today but a share on what I did today. Today I got to present the Check (monies) to the Second Harvest Food Bank here in Jacksonville, Florida. This was money that we raised through raffles at a Stampin’ Out Hunger Event that I ran with with some of my Team Members. We were able to raise $773 and my Arlington Civitan Group bumped it up to $1000!!!! Do you know what that means in terms of food?

That means that 6000 meals will be provided with this check!!! Vickie Rumbers a friend and customer of mine who represented Second Harvest today explained: The Second Harvest has the ability to purchase food at a greatly reduced price to provide that many meals …..we were astounded.

Thanks to everyone, my Girls, my friends and family and my loyal customers and yes…. my Civitan Family for making this such a huge success.

A special Thanks to Jeff and Angie Caulder of  Bluewater Storage for giving our event a home. We really appreciate it. Together…we made a difference!!!

Merry Christmas!!!
