Christmas in July

So in December I started reading this blog. I noticed that she organized something called "Pink Christmas". The more I looked into this, the more in wanted to do it.

The basic idea is that you donate money to help a family. But we all get a gift as well. If any of you have ever been to a girls camp then you understand the secret sister gift exchange. We fill out a questionnaire and email it to her and then in a couple of months she will send us an envelope with the name of our Pink Christmas girlfriend. It will have all her answers to the questionnaire and we make a gift to send to her.

I figure this is a win win win situation. I get to be all domestic like and make a gift for someone, receive one in return and while doing so help a family out. This year 100% of the proceeds go to a family that has just moved to Washington DC from Africa. They have 4 children ages 12, 8, 2 and just a few months old. The sweet mother just had twins but one passed away and the other little boy is still in the hospital weighing just a few pounds.
