Thank You & Fall / Christmas Updates
During this season of thanks & giving I would like to express our sincere gratitude to each of you for your support of Carrie's Heart. As our family of support grows...we are able to touch the lives of even more special children!
As we enter into the season of giving, please keep the Carrie's Heart kids in your heart. We are looking towards a Christmas & New Year full of JOY, LOVE & HOPE. For more details see below.
Web Updates: Lot's of new web pages have been added. Check the "What's New" section on the homepage - it provides direct links to the newest pages to keep you up to date on happenings with Carrie's Heart!
We held two successful events this fall that we hope to host annually.
Burgers for Books- We enjoyed burgers & friends at the Burgers for Books event at Fuddruckers. We also were able to collect alot of great school supplies for the fall mission trips to the Yucatan.
Trick or Treat Party - a ton of fun! http://www.carriesheart.org/trickortreat.html
Fall Yucatan Projects:
Two mission trips to the Yucatan were made during October & November. For the first time, we were able to bring additional Carrie's Heart volunteers on the mission trips. A big thanks to Angi Johnson & Olivia Pelech for their awesome fundraising efforts & hard work that made these missions a success. http://www.carriesheart.org/FallYucatan2006.html
Carrie's Heart Christmas:
This year we will be offering the gifts of JOY, LOVE & HOPE to the Carrie's Heart kids. Watch your mail & email for information about our Christmas projects, Carrie's Heart Open House and opportunites for giving this holiday season.
Presentations: We are offering presentations about Carrie's Heart and our Christmas projects to interested school, church & work groups. This is a great opportunity for us to spread the word about Carrie's Heart and expand our family of supporters. If you are interested in more information about our presentations please contact Carrie Conn.
Matched Giving: Carrie's Heart is now eligible for matched giving through Halliburton and Country Wide. This is a great way to double your giving if you or someone you know works for one of these companies. If you work for a company that offers matched giving programs please consider adding Carrie's Heart to the list of approved charities.
We wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! We thank you for being a part of the Carrie's Heart family!
