No child should ever go through Christmas without a present. Not every family has the resources to make this possible, but with a little teamwork, we can make these children’s wishes come true. A couple of weeks ago, we adopted children from two families through the Nana’s Kidz program. Today is the deadline for giving these six children the presents they requested; check out the results. Don’t let the boxes fool you, there’s a lot more goodies in there than you think!

Overall, we contributed around 150 presents! That’s a pretty sweet stash! We can only imagine the looks on these children’s faces once they open up their presents on Christmas day. We hope it’ll be the perfect cherry on top for their celebration, but we know that the most precious gift they could have is spending time with their loved ones.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Hopefully those of you who celebrate Christmas have already decorated your homes and cubicles, since Christmas is only two weeks away! Here at Mobilityware, we jumped at the chance of decorating our office immediately, not just because there’s a decorating contest, but also to bring out the holiday spirit!

 

Okay, maybe it is because there’s a decorating contest. But if there weren’t a contest, would we still see such lovely decorations, like this one?

What about Santa’s early presents, dropped off for those on his nice list?

Do you want to build a snowman? Yes, it is possible to have snowmen in Southern California.

It’s not easy to work at home, so we brought home to the office!

Last but not least, the holiday decorations would be incomplete without the magnificent office Christmas tree! Don’t let the picture fool you, because this tree is HUGE. The star barely has any room at the top!

We know you’re SO excited to find out who will win the contest; stay tuned for the announcement! In the meantime, take some pictures of your own holiday decorations and share it with us. We’re always open to new decorating ideas!

Holiday Adopt-A-Family

Thanksgiving may be over, but Christmas is just around the corner! It’s the best time of the year to be giving, whether or not you believe in celebrating the holidays. During this time, we are able to reflect on the abundance in our lives while loved ones surround us and realize that not everyone has the same luxury. If you need any ideas for charities you can participate in, check out what we’re currently doing for Christmas!

Nana’s Kidz, a program by Grandma’s House of Hope

Nana’s Kidz is a program that supports children in homeless living conditions, with necessities such as food, essential supplies, and presents for Christmas. We “adopted” six children between the ages of 3-16 years old. Each star pictured above is a child’s request, and these are currently posted up in our charity station. Once the wish has been fulfilled, we can finally take down the star. Hopefully our “star board” will be empty by December 15, and make all of these children’s wishes come true!

 

Do you have any charities in mind that we could participate in after this event? Please shoot them in the comments below!
