One Christmas I will cherish is the Christmas of '95. I was a single mom with 3 boys, 10, 8 and 19 mo. I was going to Vo Tech working on a degree in IPT. With minimal child support and no job I signed my kids up for the Salvation Army Angel Tree. My oldest wanted a bike (my middle son wanted one too, his dads mom got him one). I was trying to figure out how I was gonna get him a bike much less anything else. The day came to get their stuff from the Angel Tree, a friend went with me to go get it. When they brought it and was wheeling out a bicycle, me and my friend started crying. I was so elated that someone actually got my son a bike. The gifts for my other boys were just as good not a bike but was something they didn't have. I was always grateful for that Christmas. By the next Christmas I had a job and some extra money so I paid it forward and also choose 3 kids from the Angel Tree one for each of my boys. I was glad that I was able to do for others as my kids had been done for.

Thank you Dona for sharing your memory! If you'd like to share yours or to find out more, click here!
