Remember how I said that the checks for 2012 hadn't been recorded and that the Angel Tree Dollars hadn't been accounted for???

Well my dear faithful friends....

Yesterday morning 50+ babes still needed to cross the $1,000 wall.  But a whole pile of checks inside a whole pile of envelopes from 2012 had not been opened. 
 
After 5+ hours of opening envelopes.... and after all the checks were recorded into the accounts.....
 
GET THIS....
 
There was over $16,000 in those envelopes!!!
 
AND....
 
ONLY 13 BABES WERE LEFT.
 
Weston 9HA
 
Thirteen out of 215 babes who didn't cross the $1,000 wall.
 
We came a mere $4,573.00 short of getting all the babes over....
 
Benji 26HA
 
BUT... IT AIN'T OVER UNTIL IT IS OVER and because we are SO CLOSE - we are getting A LITTLE OVER ONE DAY to finish the job!!
 
WHY????
 
Because tomorrow is the day everyone in Eastern Europe is going to celebrate Christmas....

JANUARY 7TH

Yep!
 
SO SINCE EVERYONE IS CELEBRATING CHRISTMAS IN EASTERN EUROPE....
 
It was decided that starting now and lasting until midnight tomorrow.....
 
IT IS GOING TO BE  CHRISTMAS FOR THE LAST 13 BABES ON THE ANGEL TREE.
 
 
Holly 25C
 
We have a little over a day to raise $4,573.00 for 13 of the least of the least.
 
WE CANNOT LEAVE THESE LITTLE ONES BEHIND.

  1. There are a couple of older babes on there for whom this might be their last year on the angel tree. They HAVE to reach their goals.
