It has been four months since I have taken then helm of the Adoption Coalition of Texas. I continue to be amazed by the dedication of the staff and volunteers. Please keep the calls and the emails coming – I look forward to speaking with all of you. I can be reached at email@example.com or (512) 450-8608. I want to take a moment and update you on two exciting projects that are ongoing.
What an incredible and generous response we've had this year! Already 283 children have been matched with Secret Santa donors! However, almost 80 children are still on the wait list with less than 2 weeks to go until caseworkers come to pick up and start distributing gifts to the kids. We have individual kids, groups of siblings and groups in the same home--all needing a Secret Santa. How you can help: If you would like to purchase gifts for a child or group of children, please email ACTSecretSanta@gmail.com with your name and phone number and we'll email you a child's Wish List. Thank you for your continued support of making Christmas brighter for these special kids!
2nd Annual Byrd & Street Mistletoe Jam
I am happy to report that plans for our 2nd annual Mistletoe Jam Benefit are going very well. Seven of Austin’s favorite musicians have all graciously agreed to donate their time and play the event. The event is next Wednesday, December 7th at Threadgills South location. All of the funds raised for this event will go directly to helping children find their forever family. I expect a full house and would love to see you there. Don’t miss this night of great music and fun.
