With the help of hundreds of Only Human advocates and the larger community who came in to help, we were able to provide The Martinez Family with quite and amazing Christmas.
As you may remember, we adopted the family of 7 through St. Vincent De Paul, back in December. We promised them the best Christmas yet, and you all helped us make that a reality. We raised enough money to gift each of the 5 kids their OWN BIKES, two sets of clothing (winter jacket included), and toys for them to play with…and we did it with your help. A community member also donated her time and money to making them 3 dozen tamales for their holiday meal, as they requested. A huge thanks to Catherine, for filling their bellies with homemade love.
We wish you all could have met the family, seen the beaming smiles on the 5 shy children and used Google Translate to stumble through their letters to Santa. It was an experience like no other. We thank you, from the bottom of hearts, for helping us make the holidays a little more special for this family.
When we think about the power of community and how we can all help one another move forward, this is it. Right here. It’s the simple pleasures that come from giving, it’s the way we connect when we are united in a cause, it’s the reminder that we’re all only human…
