My dear JOY-Full Socks supporters, each year when the JOY-Full Socks campaign begins, I feel a little nervous about whether there will be enough for those who need help. Truthfully, I shouldn’t worry. For the good Lord sends me you every year. Generous, kind individuals who take time out of their own lives, to think of those in need. I am grateful to you and could not run JOY-Full socks without you. You are a blessing to many during this time of year.
Thanks to your generous and kind souls, the 2019 campaign was a huge success. We collected a total of 4,224 pairs of socks!!! My heart is filled with JOY and I thank you all very much.
We delivered to 20 different locations. Thanks to your donations, we delivered more than 250 boxes and bags filled with socks, grooming products, baby products, clothing, toys, blankets, beautiful hand knit wear, and so much more!
Delivery at each of the charities was received with an abundance of smiles, hugs and even a few tears of gratitude. Recipients are quite overwhelmed by your generosity and are awestruck with the reality that others have thought of them and care about them. It is wonderful to see their appreciation.
These hugs and accolades were received on your behalf. As I stated earlier, JOY-Full Socks is a success because of each and every one of you. I am just the courier of your kindness. There are many “elves” in the background providing wonderful support.
I, too, am humbled by your generosity and kindness. It is a gift to me to experience the goodness in each and every one of you.
Merry Christmas, and may God continue to bless you, each and every day.
With love and a grateful heart,
