Woah! That's a Lot of Christmas Crazy.

138 amazing people.

Everything from $1.00 to $100.00.

Together we raised $3053.86.

That's going to buy a heck of a lot of toys.

It already made it possible to send a nice-sized stack of gift cards to the Alle-Kiski Area HOPE Center and to The Women's Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh.

A lot of kids are going to have a better Christmas than they would have without you.

Thank you.

More photos to come on November 30th.

Please tell me you got all those GC at Giant Eagle in order to get free gas, like forever? Payback for all of your hard work?!!

I agree with @MsTeb and was going to ask the very same question myself.

This is awesome. Thank you for putting it together and making it happen, and thanks to all that donated! This is such a wonderful thing, and we know it will make a real, impacting difference in people's lives.

Thank you again.

@MsTeb and @JamesBainbridge--I did. I'm going to roll the savings from FuelPerks back into the total, though. More money for the kids is more fun than free gas. :-)

This is great! Keep us all updated. Sorry I missed donating. Two weeks of flu and bronchitis shot my brain to hell and I forgot to do a lot of things! But I'm glad others chipped in!
