Last year our Crossfit Change family was able to raise almost $600 in a short amount of time to assist the sweet family that lives over by our old gym. We bought each of the kids bicycles and several outfits as well as the parents. We would love to be able to help them out again this year. We would like to also help out the other relatives that are living in the same place. The grandmother and 2 cousins just arrived from Guatemala and have absolutely nothing! The living conditions are like nothing we have to experience, and make me realize how blessed we are to have all that we do.
There are 14 family members this year so we need all the help we can get, and if everyone at our gym bought just one gift I think we could cover the wish list. There is an angel tree with each of the names, ages, sizes, and items at the gym. If you feel that you could assist please take one or many of them off the tree and bring back the gifts wrapped and labeled with names. Last year we delivered the gifts after our Christmas eve morning WOD and that worked great. It is so neat to actually see the people we were helping out use the things we had gotten them. The kids still ride the bikes and wear the clothes.
They really could use anything that you could think of, so the list that I made is just an idea of what to get them. I will also have a printed list with all the family members information. If you would just like to give money to the cause that will work as well.
Thank you so much for being a part of our Change family and helping to change lives. Jesus tells us to help the poor and together we can do this in a big way!!!
