A Message From Nicole

I received some negative feedback when I asked for donations to help a family in need this Christmas but I looked past that and continued on my mission. 

With the help of so many people donating toys and money, (even from strangers from out of the area!), I was able to help more than 1 family in need along with donating to the Christmas house and a local daycare and preschool! 

Thank you is just not enough. I feel so blessed to have been able to reach out and help this year! If you donated, (you know who you are), thank you from the bottom of my heart! 

God Bless you all and I hope each and every one of you has a very Merry Christmas!

Nicole Hafer

I don't know you Nicole, but people will be negative, especially when it comes to some people NOT getting something they think they need or are entitled to. We ALL work hard for our money, and like to think everyone should pull their own weight. That being said, you are a wonderful person. YOU should be proud of yourself for making a difference for someone. If everyone would follow your example, what a great world we'd live in.

Some of what everyone described as negative feedback was just people suggesting some official channels (Toys for Tots, Christmas House etc.) for help.

as one of those who did donate for your cause, you deserve just as much kudos. part of the reason i donated was in spite of all the negative feedback when you were only trying to help others who needed it. its that spirit and attitude that lacks in today's commercialized Christmas era. this country would be in a little better shape if more people cared the way you did. may God Bless you as well for having a giving heart.

The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

1:39 "Some of what everyone described as negative feedback" had exactly that tone--what appeared to be one of condescesion. Most programs have eligibility requirements and this family may not have met those...which is often the case and even if only by a few dollars (I know of one lady in particular who worked her entire adult life--16 to 63--and when she needed a hand it was determined she made $11.00 to much to qualify). I for one am so happy this was a successful endeavor that allowed you to help even more than you anticipated.

Unfortunatly "no good deed ever goes unpunished" is a fact! But you have done the right thing. Firstly, there are some that will be negative, no matter what. Secondly, unfortunatly there have been and will continue to be those who "scam" others into thinking they are collecting to help others when they are collecting for themselves. Ultimately you were able to help the family and others. Find peace in knowing that you did the right thing. God Bless

Our family regularly (not just at Christmas) 'helps' out one or more households whom we personally KNOW to be in need. In addition to food, fuel, and other purchased items, we exchange friendship with these folks.

It is all for God's glory, and brings us great joy in the process.

I've heard it said that if each family that was able helped one family that truly was not, the slavery that is 'welfare' would cease to be needed.
