Having worked in the past with a large children's charity I want to make a comment. We used to run a similar scheme with a wish tree on which we placed paper wishes. The children who wrote their wishes down, were told that these were just that, wishes. People might, or might not buy them their wish, but they would still get a present. Yes some children wished for the moon or what ever 'in present' was popular that year. I don't remember any one getting one of those wishes come true though. Mind you it was the same in my daughter's circle of friends, many of their wish list items were not in their stockings on Christmas Morning. However all our wish tree children got a present. If we were asked by donors we suggest clothes, knowing that many parents would be grateful as well as the child. If you could see the look on the recipient's faces, it would reward enough for you too. Well done for finding out what the desired clothes are this year, and adding a little extra to the parcel. I know that the outcome for those two children will be positive
All of us need to remember the difference between a wish list and a demand, and that a present is freely given.
Just to wish you all a peaceful and loving holiday and may 2013 be a good year for you all
