25 Days Left Until Christmas

At the North Pole:

At the North Pole; the elves don’t make all the toys!  They bring in many of the most popular toys that kids want each year.  Elves can’t make video games or other high-tech toys.  So they have to test these toys to make sure they are safe and the kids will love them!  I would imagine these elves enjoys playing video games!

Christmas Song:

In 1995 Savatage and side project The Trans-Siberian Orchestra recorded their version of Carol of the Bells.  This version is popular with all the rockers out there.  And this song is one of my Christmas favorites!

Here is a great Alabama based charity.  Kids to Love began in 2004 by Lee Marshall as a way to help out foster kids while they wait to be adopted and placed into permanent homes.  The mission of the Kids to Love Foundation is to meet the needs of foster children while they wait for permanent homes.  Since 2004, the Kids to Love Foundation has directly impacted the lives of more than 75,000 foster children.

This charity needs some help!  They still have more than 600 foster children who need to be sponsored this Christmas!   You can request a child’s wish list and even pick the age/gender!  If you want to help e-mail that request to kidstolovefoundation@yahoo.com. The lists are due NEXT FRIDAY!

Or you can make a monetary donation to help them fill the lists that aren’t sponsored at www.kidstolove.org
