Christmas for the Orphanage - Remember the Children

Hi everyone. I have received donations for Nina's Family Christmas, but need lots more to be able to buy these wonderful, unfortunate children a gift of their very own for Christmas. So far we have donations of $720.00. We really need at least $200.00 more. Please send your donations soon. Ginny and I have to get out and finish shopping. Everything needs to be mailed by mid-November. Share what this donation is for with your children, as one of my nieces and nephews have. It is a wonderful time to show them that Christmas is giving, not only receiving. The Antares Foundation Blog is listed on the right side of this blog. Share it with my nieces and nephews! Please help these children. The shipping alone will be at least $200.00. Thank you to all those who have been so generous. Just think of the smiles on the faces of all the children in Nina's family. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Hi Family,
Thank you so much to those of you who have contributed to Mom/Dad's cause. Obviously this is so near and dear to our hearts. The thought of my Kara and Em or my nephews growing up in that environment is truly something I can't think about. Without parents who love them--without belongings that are theirs and theirs alone. It's an existance we can't fathom. So for all of us, who have so much, to donate to give them a Christmas that includes gifts (maybe for the first time ever), is a wonderful thing. I'm very proud that my parents are doing this and work so hard at not only making Nina's life happier, but those that live with her well.

Thank you, Kristen. My feelings are exactly the same. These children will most likely live in this orphanage till they are 16 and then be turned out to face the world. Can you imagine their lives. Please help us provide some happiness for 19 of them for Christmas. I just want to see smiles on their faces because there are some Americans out there who really care!
Love,
Barb
