Christmas Crazy 2016. Let's Go!



I didn't forget. I wasn't trying to avoid it. I just ... well ... I'm not really sure what happened to fall. Did we have a fall? I think we went straight from summer to winter and YOU GUYS, IT'S CHRISTMAS CRAZY TIME!

Okay, so maybe it's a few minutes past Christmas Crazy time, but that's not the point. The point is there are a whole lot of kids who depend on the services provided by Center for Victims. That means there are a whole lot of kids who have walked alongside violence in ways that we all wish they hadn't. They are kids who have seen and felt things that nobody should have to see or feel, but most especially a kid.

We can't change what has already happened, but we can make tomorrow better. It's time that we directly improve the lives of some kids and help to make sure that at least a little bit of their Chrismas is brighter.

We're starting with a little help from Bonnie.


Bonnie decided to spread a little sunshine by asking loved ones to give things to Christmas Crazy instead of her for her birthday. Because Bonnie rules. And because Bonnie is sunshine.

It's your turn. Create a little sunshine however you see fit. You can toss some cash in using the image below, or you can shop from the Christmas Crazy Wish List. I'll be adding to the Wish List as time permits. Either way, everything goes to making Christmas a little brighter for some kids who could really use a little sunshine.

Thanks for your help, y'all. This really is my favorite thing we do every year.



(In case you're wondering, we're not done with that little project to update the outdoor space at Center for Victims. Everything has taken longer than I would have liked, which means we missed our goal. We'll be back in the spring, and I'll keep working on getting us help between now and then. We WILL get it done. But, for now, I've hit the pause button on the project.)

A beautiful little girl with a big heart! You rock, Bonnie.

I stumbled upon your blog some time ago and have continued to keep up. Every year I anticipate Christmas Crazy. It always makes the season a little brighter. Keep doing what you do.
