A Big Thanks To All Our Contributors AND Ways You Can Help Without Donating!!

I would just like to give a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who has helped with the Vanuatu Christmas Project, I have been overwhelmed and touched by so many peoples willingness to give. Despite the economic hardships at this time, we have a lot to be thankful for in this beautiful country. We have so much more then so many people in the world, and I don't think there is anyone more deserving of our help than these under-privelged, hard working children! 
I have some exciting news. We just received a huge donation of toothbrushes and toothpaste from Denna and Jason Kaoupua of Atkinson Family Dentistry! We are so grateful for this donation, it has made a big cost reduction in the amount of money we need to raise. You should be able to see that our goal has been adjusted accordingly on the donation widget. I also took into account the product donations from Tropical Traditions in the adjustment of our goal. 
After we received these toothbrushes and toothpaste and made the adjustments to our goal we have finally broken the half way point! Which is great because we are at about the half way mark till the end of the project. 
Although the amount of money needed has lessened, the goal has not changed one bit and everything is on track! We are still planning on packing up 75 backpacks and 75 hygiene kits to send to these beautiful children. We just need your help in this final push to spread the word, raise the cash and get the supplies, so that we can make this goal a reality by Christmas. 
If anyone feels they can not donate money but still want to help, there is something you can do! SPREAD THE WORD - if you have a blog and would like to post our widget on it grab this code: <object width="250" height="250"><param name="movie" value="http://widget.chipin.com/widget/id/f1c234bc4b8eb235"></param><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://widget.chipin.com/widget/id/f1c234bc4b8eb235" flashVars="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowScriptAccess="always" wmode="transparent" width="250" height="250"></embed></object>

Or if you would like to feature this project on your blog shoot me an email at rachael@takeitfrom-me.com and I will write up a post for you! 
Sharing the project on facebook is a wonderful thing to do, as well as emailing your family and friends!  I have had a couple people look around their house and find unused pencils, notebooks, binders, soap, etc. and send them my way. This is also a GREAT way to help and makes a huge difference.

Thanks again everyone for your help and support and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas Season!
