We have $309 so far and I am estimating the beer-a-thon will contribute at least another $200. Do you think we should help a 3rd family?

PLEASE let me know ASAP my contact needs to know by the end of the day.

I was aiming for about $200 per family I just want your suggestions/thoughts!!!

Girlie, wait until the money comes in and then if you think that you have enough for a third family go for it. The more the merrier during the Christmas season.. Just my .02 cents worth...

I think maybe we can do better with the families we got, as in spend a little more on them!

We need to remember that Christmas isn't the only time of the year that these families need help!

Last time I was involved with adopt a family, it was a year long commitment! We helped them out with Birthdays and other holidays through out the year. And we made Thanksgiving the last holiday, then we moved onto another family!

All the money we raise now doesn't have to be spent now! It can be used through out the year on these families, plus we can do other fund raiser through out the year, and have a head start for next Christmas's families!

You know, I never thought about it!!! It is a great idea, how would we get everyone to do it though? I would feel horrible if someone's name was left out!
