    I'll be by real soon.
    Those kids love the stuffed animals and if I was rich enough, every little girl in Sosua would get one for Christmas.

    Rocky, if you remember last December Giselle and I brought two large rolls of wrapping paper and you just happened to be at the airport when we landed.

    This year we are not coming to the North Coast until April but when we arrive I have three large rolls of wrapping paper (one red, one blue and one gold - anything but red or blue). We'll give you an early start to the paper drive in April.

    We can never have too much wrapping paper.
    Thanks Dude.

    Once again, you have brought tears to my eyes, Rocky!

    What you are doing here is what this season is all about - thank you for bringing back the joy of giving.

    Your generous heart and overwhelming compassion will hopefully set a standard for all the new ex-pats - but then again - you are a hard act to follow.

    P.S. don't forget - one of your "lady friends" that makes such a yummy turkey needs a little gift of something on the 29th !!

    Hey Marlie,
    Thanks for the kind words.
    This might be a good time to mention that several folks have donated to this cause.
    This a difficult time, right now, in light of the 2 storms that devastated some parts of the country, and buying champagne and presents for poor people might seem to be a low priority thing.
    That's part of the reason that we've been quieter than usual about the event.
    That being said, the New Year's Eve mobile party is food for the soul, both for the givers and the recipients.
    I'm sure that some of these kids in the poor barrios not only don't get presents, but I bet you that most of them haven't ever seen a gift wrapped one, and the odds are that their parents have never had a chance to share some good cheer over a few glasses of champagne.
    Only those who have gone out with us, can fully understand what it's like, and they would tell you that it's a magic feeling.
    We might only stop somewhere for 30 minutes, but the feeling lives on for a long long time.
    I hope you can join us one day soon.
    Regards, Marco.

    Doing something that comes from the heart, just doesn't get much better.
