I have three pieces of exciting news to announce:
First – the Austin Children’s Museum has created a permanent exhibit space for the Heart Gallery of Central Texas portraits! The museum has hosted the full gallery in the past and we are thrilled to now have the opportunity to keep a regularly updated set of portraits on display year-round. We are grateful to the Austin Children's Museum for their continuing commitment to raise awareness of and find adoptive families for Central Texas foster children. Be sure to watch last week's KVUE feature on the Heart Gallery of Central Texas filmed at the museum at http://www.kvue.com/home/Heart-Gallery-features-children-in-foster-care-system-133295738.html . We invite everyone to take time and visit the Austin Children’s Museum located in downtown Austin at 201 Colorado Street (http://www.austinkids.org/).
Second – I am happy to announce our 2nd annual Mistletoe Jam Benefit will take place on December 7th at Threadgills South. All of the funds raised for this event will go directly to helping children find their forever family. All of their musicians have donated their time to this amazing event. Details about the event are attached as well as detailed below. I would love it if you could join us for a great night of music and fun.
Third - Our Secret Santa Gift Program is in full swing! We currently have over 250 children on the list and continue to receive gift lists from caseworkers daily. We have already matched all of our available donors to about 100 kids. Our thanks go out to those of you who have already signed up to help! If you'd like to be a Secret Santa and purchase Christmas gifts for a Central Texas foster child, please email your name and contact phone number to ACTSecretSanta@gmail.com and we'll send you all the details. Thank you for helping make the holidays brighter for a Central Texas foster child!
