We want to share with you the very moving Thank You messages we have received from the 2011 families. So many members and friends donated to brighten the holidays for these families. We thank you too!
From Family # 2Merry Christmas from Our Family We received your package yesterday. It was an incredibly nice gift and we’re blessed by it. The clothes are beautiful and the kids will be excited about getting new clothes when they open their presents on Christmas morning. “Our daughter” will love her new shiny bracelets and nail polish. Thank you so much for your big hearts and may the Lord richly bless you.
Family #3 writesTo the beautiful souls of MOST, I am in tears right now over the incredible amount of generosity and joy you have shared with my family. We continue to feel so blessed by good friends near and far. An amazing amount we may never even meet but hope to, someday. I will send the thank you card off today. Thank you so much!!!!
Message from Family # 4
Dear Maureen, MOST Families and our angel family at HOM:
I’m not only speechless but overwhelmed in tears and with such a great feeling of comfort, like God does listen and He knows what my kids and I went through these past 3 years….I always try to focus on the positive, do fun activities with them and keep on smiling like nothing is wrong…but something it is so hard. I just want to say that today, when i got the envelope in the mail, I cried of joy, and it felt so good, like I needed it…like I was holding those tears for so long but finally i didnt feel guilty and weak for crying. i know that no matter what i say or write will be accurate enough…I can only tell you that we are going to be forever grateful to all of you…My kids are with dad until Saturday, but I will make sure to tell them this happy story and have them write with me the Thank You card…..Please , if I can pay this forward somehow, I can’t financially but if I could help in any way…maybe you have a mom in [my] area that needs a call….I also have clothing from my boys that don’t fit anymore…is not coordinated like I used to dress the triplets in the good old times but someone might need it…Thanks again…God bless each and everyone of you amazing people. My heart and prayers will be forever yours…Thank you for our gift and everything (from one of the children) Thank you for the gift it was very thoughtful of you (from one of the children) Thank you for the gifts we appreciate it ( from one of the children)
Family #5 saysOh My Goodness!!!! What a HUGE surprise I had when I received a package from MOST. There truly are Christmas Angels!!! Thank you so much! I am a bit overwhelmed at the generosity! Thank you Thank you Thank you!! I will get that note out quickly!! Happy Holiday and Happy New Year to you all!!! God Bless, Love and Peace to you all!!
A message from Family #6Hi MOST, I received your absolutely wonderful gift! Sorry I didn’t write sooner, think I got it on Friday! I am so blown away by your generosity my heart was singing praises to you! As you know it’s been a rough year and going to get a little rougher but with your generous donation it will make life easier. I don’t post it on my Carepages but financially I’m in some dire straights. Between losing the funds the kids used to get, general economy, bills, not being able to sell my house, well you get the picture. But as you know I trust God with everything and just keep praying and it seems He, you, came through!! God is so good, but whoever was responsible for this awesome gift is great! I can’t thank you enough! Thank you so much!
Family #7 writesThank you so much for the Christmas Box. It is wonderful to know that people are thinking about you, not only @ Christmas but all year long. Having their daddy deployed during the Christmas holiday has been somewhat difficult on the girls. So every possible chance I have to do something special for them I take it. Thank you for adding to that. May God continue to bless you. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
Family # 9 calledI actually just received a box in the mail from you guys and wanted to call and say thank you, Because I don’t know if you know or not but I actually got in an accident last Friday and totaled my car and have had a horrible, horrible time here and you literally just changed Christmas for my kids…
Family #10 posted on facebook:A tremendous thank you to everyone at MOST and the anonymous family, that put together and sent an incredible package to my family. We are so grateful for your thoughtfulness and generosity. Everything in the package is perfect for my girls. Thank you for brightening up “our daughter’s” day!
Family #10 also wrote:To the Amazing Family who donated to us I cannot begin to tell you how touched we are by your thoughtfulness and generosity. The day we received the package in the mail, our daughter was feeling very ill and we had just returned from a long day in the hospital. Your package brightened her day as well as our other girls and put a huge smile on her face! My husband and I feel so blessed to have such amazing people supporting us during this time in our life. Please know we are forever grateful to you and all of our friends at MOST. Thank you again! Wishing you a Happy & Healthy New Year. Family # 11 emailed I received the gift cards in the mail yesterday and I don’t even know what to say.You have no idea how much this meant to me. It means peace of mind. I will be able to pay some bills that I have been avoiding, for some creditors that have been calling me and wondering where their money is… Peace of mind for me as Christmas looms just a couple days away. Thank you so much for thinking of us this year, and please forward our thanks to the family that sent this! Next year we will absolutely return the favor!
A note from an Additional Family helped:A very special package just arrived at our house from MOST! We are delighted with the Disney passes and the Visa card! Thank you so much (and I will be thanking the very generous donor in writing, of course). We are planning to go to Disney in January or February and will definitely post the pix to you all! Thank you again and Happy Holidays to All!!!
This family too was helped:Merry Christmas Maureen and Everyone at MOST! We received the package in the mail! Oh, we are so touched! And overwhelmed by the generosity. THANK YOU!!!!! Who sent it??? This has been an unusual year for us with my ovarian cancer diagnosis and surgery and long chemo treatment in addition to the continued decline in the construction industry and shift in our business. God is SO GREAT and we are SO BLESSED with many friends and family who continue to pray for us! Thank you for yours too! I am doing really well now and getting my strength (and hair!) back. I still get tired easily and have a few other lingering effects but overall am feeling much better. Our family graciously thanks you for your incredible thoughtfulness and generosity. God Bless you ALL! Again, Thank You to all who support this wonderful program that means so much to these families! Donations are accepted all year, in any amount.
