Christmas Toy Drive

We all have seen the Toys for Tots drive and how successful they are in bringing hope to a child who otherwise would not have a present for Christmas.
ToyDrive_2013_original (451x352)Well there are still so many children that don’t get to share in that experience.   Children become homeless or live in shelters with their families due to many reasons – Fire, evictions, parental separation, child abuse etc.. the list can go on..  We are beginning our drive early this year so that we can maximize the number of items we can collect, or purchase, and distribute to each of the agencies working with children and their families.

One in 45 children experience homelessness in America each year.  That’s over 1.6 million children.

We are asking you to help us to bring a little of excitement to a child in need.  To let them know they are cared for, thought of, and most importantly they are not alone.  If you can, please donate a toy or book for a child.  Your donation will make a child feel a little less helpless and a lot more hopeful.  Christmas is a magical time of the year.  Help Santa bring a toy or book to a child and let that child dream a little longer.   We have attached a list of suggested toys, this list serves as a suggestion only. Suggested Toys   Please NO battery operated toys.

About Karen J Ragland

David and I met in June of 2010. I lived in Bristol Virginia and he lived in Louisiana. After meeting we discovered that we held many of the same values and to say we immediately fell in love is an understatement. We had several hurdles to overcome, but while getting to know each other we discovered that we shared many of the same dreams. Our love of God, and how we can minister his word, our love of family, and honor. It did not take much convincing for me to move to Louisiana where David lived. I took a leap of faith, left my job and moved April 16th of 2011. There were still several obstacles that we needed to deal with head on and resolve but a year later we were married on 4/13/12. We talked for a few years about setting up a Christian blog and/or website and so here we are, finding our way through how to get this started. I think we have done well so far and we are so ready to actively interact with everyone here. We hope we will get to know everyone - whether you believe as we do or not.
