Wowza! I cannot believe that I will be heading out on the Hip2Help Tour from North Carolina in less than a week?! Thanks to all of you awesome readers and sponsors, I have a garage FULL of donated items (I have received so many packages that my house is starting to fill up as well!). I literally get goose bumps and teary eyes when I really take the time to look around at the boxes that surround me and realize how many of you took the time and money to put together these wonderful packages. Thank you, thank you, thank you! This tour would not be possible without all of you!
With that being said, I received so many Hip2Help T-Shirt orders today that I am almost completely sold out of the shirts. Again, a BIG thank you for all your support! So, I will be taking down the shirt order form shortly.
As you know, we are sponsoring 11 families throughout the tour. I wanted to do one final post about their top needs as of today. If you are able to send any of the items below, it would be much appreciated!
