Hello Everyone, my name is Linda Straith, but I am also known as Earth Angel Granny in Northern Illinois,U.S.A.
I established & run a program called Earth Angels in Dec. 2004. I made a promise to God that if I survived the 2 1/2 yrs of combo treatment, I would find a way to give back to the community that was there for me. This year will be our 12th Christmas season! Altho I work with families year round, it is during the Christmas season that I really need help. We also utilize Facebook & Paypal in order to make it easier for everyone wanting to participate in a worthy cause. As of Jan 2011, our two major employers (printing plants) closed their doors. Leaving in our small rual community approx. 2000 people w/o jobs, and who have lost even more. In 2012, we managed to reach out to 972 children (62 children being from military families), In 2013 we were able to reach out to 768 children ( 41 children being from military families) IN 2014 we reached out to 827 children , this year I expect my list to be larger.I could not do what I do w/o everyone's help.I know times are tough all over, no one has gone untouched by todays economy. But I am asking to PLEASE help if you can.. To help bring a lil joy into the life of a child in need this coming holiday season. You can earn your Earth Angel wings by sponsoring a chilld for Christmas. With your contribution, he or she will know Santa didn't forget them after all. Our goal is to reach out to families in need currently residing in Ogle County, Illinois (but with your help, no family in need is ever turned away) that has "fallen through the system" somehow, and are unable to receive any kind of assistance, but could really use an Earth Angel assigned to them to make this a special Christmas after all.. Remember, the names I gather need your help, generosity & opened hearts for toys & donations to make this year a success! Remember, every time you hear a bell ring, an angel gets their wings...TOGETHER we can make Ogle County IL. and then some,the largest group of bell ringing Earth Angels once again this year!
