Sunday, September 16th update.


My head is spinning with the number of donations we have received and donated out in the past few weeks. We had already exceeded last year's numbers at the first of the month. I donated out close to 1,000 items and 600 diapers just this past week.

Having donation sites is great. So many more families have been donating diapers and items. It has cut my time way down by only having to collect from a number of sites. I added Sunnyvale and Cupertino sites earlier this month. Scroll down to donation sites for addresses.

As we begin into our 4th quarter 2007, our holiday program will kick into gear. Our hope is to donate 1,000 gifts to 1,000 children in need. Big heart designs has created a number of gifts that can be sponsored for the children. Not only will a child receive a great gift, but Project Warm Hug will receive a percent of the proceeds and all gifts will be made by work from home moms!!! I am setting up a special blog site for our holiday program. I will have the link set up by tomorrow.

Our first diaper and change drive is winding up with week. I look forward to announcing the results. As this one is winding down, two more will be starting up. The diaper and change drive is very simple. Each person brings in a case of diapers and a handfull of loose change for a designated period of time. Kids love this because it is so visual. A great lesson in sharing and caring for local kids in need. If you have a group that is interested, please let me know and I will get you all the information needed to get started. This is a great drive for families, neighborhoods, businesses, schools, childcare centers, church groups and so on....
My hope is that with 2-3 running each month, the majority of our fundraising will be met!
