A Great Big Thank You!

As I write this I feel a sense of complete disbelief that in a mere 72hours a group of people who had never met before managed to pull together hundreds of gifts for hundreds of children in need.

I’ve just had the call from Joan to say the boxes are in her car. Her gratitude at what we have all done humbles me.

When I finally escaped from my house this afternoon to do some errands I was met with aggressive drivers and rude people who reminded me a lot about what Christmas is like “out there” and I couldn’t help but think “why can’t people IRL be as kind as generous as people online?” Because what we’ve done this week is the sort of thing you think could never happen.

I’m so encouraged that our little Aussie community of bloggers and friends has pulled together in this way.

And so, I want to acknowledge all of you who made this possible!

Please stand up when your name is called,
