I received this message on my personal facebook yesterday, shared it there but it is so wonderful, I thought I would share with everyone.
Diana Higgenbottom exceeded her 1000 shoebox goal for Santa in a Shoebox. Last count we had was 1,179. One woman’s passion and commitment to a community and to help those that truly need it and deserve it has changed the lives of many through one box.
G.S (who is a recipient and wanted to remain anonymous) sent me this
“Hi, so today I received our Santa in a Shoe Box and to my surprise they had one for my husband and I. Being the grown kid I am I couldn’t wait and had to open it. After some convincing my hubby to open it he let me and it brought me to tears. There was a bracelet in there that I had been wanting. I’m actually in tears I can’t believe how many people out there really care. She had a card in there signed Diana she truly made my day. I can’t thank everyone enough for what they did for my family. This is such an awesome thing they do and its awesome how many people really care for the less fortunate. They are truly my angels they saved Christmas. Hopefully next year ‘m able to give back not only with gifts but also volunteer to deliver them.”
When I spoke to her she said “Im still on cloud 9 I’ve never had anyone who cared so much for a complete stranger. If you know who it is please tell them thank you im truly grateful she truly made my day, month and year!”
