Hi, 

   My name is Lynette Barrett and I live in Oneida, NY. Due to economy and the Flooding we had this year, there are a lot of families that have children of all ages that cannot afford a Christmas for their kids. They even struggle to put food on ther table too. 

I have contacted Catholic Charities here in Oneida and they work with a few different programs like adopt a family, and The Tree wish one, where you take some tags off the trees and it has age and gender along with a toy that a kid has asked for, and then There is another program, where they get distributed to all ages of children. Without these programs, these children would not have anything to open on Christmas. I believe in helping any way I possibly can. Anything will be appreciated. 

I decided to do it this way because of shipping costs, That money could go towards more gifts. I will be donating money as well and I will go to the stores and buy the gifts and wrapping paper to donate to at least 2 of the programs. I will also be taking pictures of all the gifts, and maybe if they allow, the workers at the programs accepting the gifts. If you can afford to, I know alot of families would appreciate it. To have at least 1 gift per child to open would just make Their Christmas. 

Now my goal amount, I really do not have one, It requires one and I couldn't change it so thats why its 1000.
