Please help if you can

Some of you may know by now that we are trying to kick our Volunteers of America holiday charity program in to high gear. For those that may have missed it I have copied my Misses post from Audiokarma below

For a lot of us the holidays still seem like a long way off. Many of us will be buying gifts for family, friends and co-workers. We will wake up Christmas morning and watch our family open that gift that they "really wanted" then celebrate with lots of good food.

Now imagine that your 6 year old watches TV and commercials for the cool new toys. The radio plays in your car as you both sing along "He's checking his list, he's checking it twice, gonna find out who'se naughty or nice..Santa Clause is coming to town". Then reality hits, you are struggling to pay your bills and put food on the table. How are you ever going to be able to explain to your child why Santa didn't leave them a gift? You really start to dread the Holidays.


This will be the 7th year that Audiokarma will be doing the "Adopting Families for the Holidays" fund raising. Last year due to the generosity of the members of Audiokarma we were able to adopted 30 families, provide over 3,000 meals to the homeless and donate funds to Childrens Hospitals.


How can you help ?

One of the things that many members like to do is sell or auction off items with the funds going to adopt the families. In the past some of the items auctioned off have been new and old vinyl, equiptment, BBQ rub, drawings, cookies and so many more items. Do you have something that you like to make or something that is just sitting around and you are not sure what to do with it. One mans trash is another mans treasure. Consider auctioning it off, someone else might really enjoy it and any money raised will go to a good cause.

Thank you so much for your continued support with keeping the magic of the Holidays alive for our Children.

Please feel free to list your items for sale, or for auction to benefit this charity.

There is no charge for selling in this forum, all we ask is that the funds generated in this forum, all go to the AK Adopting Families for the Holidays charity through Volunteers of America. You can do this a couple of ways.

1) if you would like to send a donation via paypal our address is sales@audiokarma.org
Please make sure that you note that the funds are for the Adopt a Family.

2) Mail the funds to

AudioKarma
29488 Woodward Ave
Suite 160
Royal Oak, Michigan 48073
Please let the seller know payment is sent, this way we can let them know when payment arrives.


Either way you choose, please make note on the payment, that it is for our adopted families. Thank you for your continued support.

Due to the generosity of our great membership this year marks the 7th year that we will be Adopting Families for the Holidays.

Thanks for your consideration
Nancy and David

Thanks Bob, You helped to make some family very happy. Just for the record we are still accepting donations. We generally go all the way up till the first week in Jan. It may be a bit late but seeing the expression of the kids is well worth it when they think Santa forgot about them. Parents almost always break down and cry with appreciation.

My pleasure, Dave. Beamon/Rajoo and crew deserve a 'Yooge' shoutout for their contribution.
