Here's a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has helped Jaedin with his project!

Today we went shopping to buy the materials to make the newborn kits. Here's Jaedin picking out some of the things:
He raised enough money to make 15 entire newborn kits!!! Here he is with Nathaniel and Jenacy putting the kits together:
When we got them all packed up, Jaedin said, "Babies of Ecuador, here come your presents!!!" It was super cute :D

Thank you so much for all the donations we have received! We're absolutely amazed that Jaedin was able to almost quadruple his original goal of $100! Thank you so much for supporting this cause, and for supporting Jaedin and his big idea! It's been amazing to go through this Christmas season with the kids thinking more about what they can do for others instead of what is under the Christmas tree. This has been a month filled with service and we've felt the amazing joy that this Christmas season offers! Thank you, everyone, for your support!

My Christmas Wish

Jaedin's New Project

A note from Timber, Jaedin's mom:

Recently at his friend's baptism, Jaedin noticed that the cookies ran out before everyone had a chance to get one. Jaedin was concerned about this and on our way home from the church we got into a conversation that led to us talking about how sometimes there isn't enough to go around in the world, and that's why we need to serve others. We need to share what we have with those that don't have as much.

From that conversation has come Jaedin's desire to put together a Christmas project to help others. Nathan and I helped him choose this cause and he has helped do the rest. Now he needs your help. Please take the time to donate a few dollars so that Jaedin can reach his goal.

Often at Christmastime we talk about remembering the true meaning of Christmas. Jaedin isn't content to just hear about the true meaning of Christmas--he wants to live it. Please help him to find the true meaning of Christmas in his goal to help others. Every tiny bit will help!

Thank you!
Love Timber
