@AliJoi5, thanks for these! My favorite was #34 from the little guy who asked Santa to fix his dad's brain tumor. Gollllllly! 

 

I can't wait for Tuesday. Our Kiwanis Club sponsors two families for Christmas, so on Tuesday, two of us are going to meet a single mom, who is a disabled vet, at Walmart and tell her she has $500 to spend on anything she wants (no liquor or cigs). We know that for Thanksgiving she and her two kids had ramen noodles and toast, so we're expecting to see a lot of groceries in her cart. This experience is the best part of Christmas to me. Woman Happy

Too funny!!  I also like the little one who asked to be turned into a dragon... "pleeeeease!!!"  And the one who apologizes for the mom's lack of baking skills.  Smiling Face With Open Mouth and Tightly-Closed Eyes

@MaggieMack  I don't think I got that far in... I'm going to have to go back and read that one!  I'll get the hanky ready.

 

I must tell you, I'd never heard of Kiwanis before, and had to google it...

What a wonderful organization to be a part of...  thank you for giving back!!  I can't think of a truer spirit of Christmas.

Being a "big kid" myself, I thoroughly enjoyed those letters.  I like the little girl's note that said she wanted that "little thing that can turn into anything at anytime."  LOL  And also "1,000 bucks."  Thanks for posting!  Smiley Happy
