Almost Done!

22 days til Christmas!

Can you believe it?  Time has FLOWN by this year.  But it has been a great year filled with challenges and triumphs for all of us.

We know that this year has been a struggle for so many.  And yet we can't help but feel the love and support and generosity of our friends and family at this time of year.  You all have been so generous and supportive and we just couldn't have asked for a more heartfelt outpouring of support from all of you.

With that said, we need just a little bit more.  We are SO close to meeting our goal this year and are struggling to raise just a little bit more money.  So if you can, and you are able and willing, please consider donating what you can to Gracies Gift.  We are striving to make a difference in the lives of a few young children and could use your help to do so.

We will be closing the site on Monday and will be heading up to the orphanage on Thursday night.  Thank you all for your help this year and we hope you all have a wonderful holiday season!

Much love,

Gracie Carlton (and the rest of the family)

It's time!

Hello family and friends!

November has come and with that comes our preparations for the holiday season. As many of you know, over the last two years we have made it our goal to share our love and joy with those less fortunate over the holidays. This year is no different. We have chosen to support the Masonic Home for Children in Oxford, NC for the third year running. It is our goal to provide Christmas for a cottage of children residing in the orphanage. These children are so very deserving of our support and we truly have found amazing rewards in giving all that we can.

We know that the economy is tough right now, and most of us are struggling to figure out how to give our own family a joyful Christmas. But we ask you to sit and think about what makes the holidays so wonderful.

Is it the oodles and oodles of gifts under the tree? Or do the family and friends we share laughter and love with truly make our holidays rich?

This year my family has joined forces with Puja Wentworth at The Chiropractic Wellness Studio in Morrisville, NC. We are all going to make do with a little less this Christmas so that we may share a piece of our own joy with those less fortunate. We truly hope that you all may decide to do the same.

$1200 is the amount we need to raise this year to provide gifts to our adopted cottage.

If you are able to donate, we would greatly appreciate any and all contributions that can be made. Just click the donate button and Paypal will take care of the rest. If you wish to send a check, just let us know and we can email you our address.

If you are unable to donate, we ask for your prayers that the Lord guide us and give us the ability to reach our goal!

Thank you all so much for your support this year....we'll keep you posted!
