Christmas Giving Back

October 28th, 2014

I know it's only October but the Forrest Spence Fund is starting to think about Christmas. We want to make sure the families that are inpatient at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital feel loved during a difficult time. We are going to collect gifts for children of all ages (newborn up to 18) from now until December 15th. We have created a Wish List to help you decide what items work best. We will distribute these gifts at our Family Christmas dinner on December 23rd at Le Bonheur. Each parents can choose a new wrapped gift for their child.

So what can you do:
1. Purchase a gift at a local store, wrap it and label it clearly on the bottom with a post it what the gift is. Then contact Donna Nash at donna [at] forrestspencefund [dot] com letting her know you have it. She will work out a time and place to best get the gift.
2. Purchase a gift through Amazon or another online site and have it mailed to Forrest Spence Fund, PO Box 770478, Memphis, TN 38177 and we will wrap and label it.
3. Purchase a gift at a local store, wrap it and label it clearly, and if you are out of town mail it our PO Box above.

This is a great opportunity to include your children in the spirit of giving. Take them with you to the store to pick something out and let them know the reason you are giving back. Sit with them at the computer and include them in purchasing something to give to a child from our Wish List. Show them that it is far more important to give than to receive.

Thank you for pairing up with the Forrest Spence Fund to give back.
