Disney Champions for Kids #CBias #DisneyCFK

I am blessed to be the coordinator for the Angel Tree ministry this year. I was on the last leg of the journey about a week ago. I had made sure every one of our Angels had someone to deliver their gifts. Hubs, Little Bit, and I paired with another family to deliver to a girl I will call “Special Girl.” 

I had finished up shopping for Special Girl on Friday at Walmart. Check out my shopping trip on Google + here. Another wonderful family from Church went in with us to buy gifts for Special Girl This morning we got the rest of the presents. I had made an appointment with Special Girls Momma to come and visit at 3pm this afternoon. 

We pulled up to the old house and Special Girls Momma was standing outside talking with some people in a mini van. We waved hello and Special Girls Momma told us Special Girl was in the van and was heading out to do some homework with a friend. I think Special Girl was to bashful to meet us.

Special Girls Momma lovingly welcomed us into her home. She greeted us with gifts! A Barney for Little Bit and some other little gifts she had dug out of her home. I was beyond touched. We were there to bless her and her child and she blessed our child. 

We had a wonderful visit. The family that came with us put the Christmas tree up for Special Girls Momma. We asked Special Girls Momma if she would like us to decorate it for her. She said that Special Girl loved decorating the tree so we left if there ready for her.

Hubs is a computer dude so he got the wireless internet up and running lickity split. He also helped Special Girls Momma with a little computer task while he was at it. How I love that Hubs of mine. It blessed me through and through to see him serve Special Girls Momma. 

When we left there were lots of hugs and we all almost cried. What a fantastic way to celebrate Christmas! I asked Special Girls Momma if I could call and see how Special Girl liked her goodies. She said absolutely and I will call!

I am so very grateful to Disney for helping me to be a Champion for Kids. It was such a moving experience to mobilize and make a difference in the life of a child in my community. I highly encourage all of you to check out the mission of Champions for Kids and stay connected with them on Facebook and Twitter. You can also join Champions for Kids for a Twitter party on December 15th at 9:00 EST. I hope to see you all there!

  1. I love that you get to meet the people you are giving gifts to. I hate just giving and not knowing if the person really even needs the things we give.

  2. This is the true spirit of Christmas. Not what gifts you get under the tree or can give someone else but the gift of showing love and improving someone's life just by letting them know you care.
    Merry Christmas to you Miss Amy.
