I think that's an option as a last resort. How used is it?

Not banged up, but a year or two old. I have to convince one of my sons to give it up if this is the option. The never play with them and I would prefer another kid who will play with it get it. Let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Ok! Only one item left!

1. A Radio or Shower

Just a reminder:

1. All items need to be wrapped and labeled (with the family # and what's inside/ who it's for)

2. DEADLINE FOR GETTING THEM TO ME IS DEC. 19th, NOONISH, or contact me and make arrangements. They will be delivered to families early the next day so it's uber important to get in touch with me by the 19th.

(512) 632 - 0590
My address: 3500 Clarkson Ave, Austin

I'll be coming at The Hideout tonight from 6:30-10ish, so that'd be a great time to deliver your stuff.

I never got to formally thank everyone who helped out this year.

So in order of whom I copied and pasted from Google docs first :

Kerri Lendo
Paul & Victoria
John De Mott
Travis Devitt
Kristin Henn
Heidi Rogers
Shana Merlin
Halyn Erickson
Emma Holder
Kaci & Roy Danger
Todd Geldon
Mike Nystul
Mary Mings
Jessica Arjet
Shea Scott
Lindsey Reeves
Hal McCown
Bob Olmstead
Lacy & Quinn
Terry Woodroffe
Nicole & Jason Oliver
Josh Gill & Lisa Jackson
Marc Majcher
Jayme Ramsay
Ryan Hill
Jennifer Paine
Content Love Knowles
Brad Hawkins
Kevin Miller
Gloria & Todd

If I have forgotten anyone, please let me know.

A special thanks to Paul & Victoria for repeatedly stepping in and being extremely generous. Also, special thanks to Hal McCown for a very generous online donation even though he just recently got into improv and had to move to Phoenix (boo!).

Thanks sooooo much, y'all! The organizations were really touched. I was really touched, especially by all the effort and care put into getting the items. The gift wrapping was goregous and thoughtfully done.

I'll be opening an official discussion after New Years to expand the volunteer efforts of the AIC into something year-round. We have so many awesome people, it would be a shame not to parlay this effort into something bigger.

Wow, the AIC is truly magnificent. I, for one, would love to see some volunteering opportunities for those of us who can only afford to donate time.

Not needed! You all did it in the form of a gigantic camera donation. I'm in the process of making a Thank You video to everyone!
