Christmas Happiness

Contributions that trickled in late Friday or arrived in Tuesday’s mail pushed the already record-breaking 2006 Christmas Happiness fund over the $75,000 mark.

Santa couldn’t use them this year, but they will hopefully provide enough of a cushion to give next year’s fund drive a healthy start.

Your response each year is always amazing and uplifting for everyone involved in this annual tradition. It’s a true example of the meaning of Christmas.

Your reward is picturing all those happy children’s faces on Christmas morning and the satisfaction of knowing you helped put them there.
