Help These Kids Have an Extra Special Christmas!

Imagine a child without Christmas memories. No memories of sitting on

Santa’s lap. No memories of the excitement that so many children feel on Christmas morning as they rush down the hall to see that glowing tree with all of the beautifully wrapped gifts beneath it. No memories of Holiday tra- ditions. For many of the children here at Rancho Damacitas Children & Family

Services the above lines describe them perfectly. Their young lives have been filled with emptiness, sorrow, and trauma. They have been solely fo- cused on survival and seldom to never focus on just being a kid, let alone the joys and traditions that the Holidays bring. Now imagine life here at Rancho

Damacitas, especially around the Holidays. Our six homes are filled with the sights and sounds of the season. Each home is beautifully decorated with the glow of lights, the scent of evergreen spreading through the house from the big tree in the corner next to the fireplace. Hanging from the mantel are eight stockings, one for the house-mom and dad, and six for the kids that live in the home. Each kid has filled out his/her wish list and they can hardly wait for Christmas morning so they can see if they will get exactly what they have asked for. We work hard to make the Holidays special for our kids. We feel that they deserve it, and that they need to experience the joys that only the Holidays can bring. You can be a part of helping our

kids have an extra special Christ- mas. You see, back in July we had our kids gather around the table and we encouraged them each to draw some Christmas pictures. We dec- orated the room with a tree, adorned the fireplace with evergreen and gar- land, and even served our version of a Christmas punch and amazing red and green cupcakes. We then took the very best of the drawings and had them made into beautiful Holi- day cards and a single limited edi- tion ornament. By purchasing these lovingly

and carefully created pieces, you can help our kids experience Christ- mas as never before. You can liter- ally grant their Christmas wishes, create mind healing Christmas memories, and in a very tangible way demonstrate to each of the kids in our care that someone cares and loves them even without knowing them. Be a Santa for our kids by pur-

chasing these beautiful Holiday cards or ornament. Our 2014 orna- ment debut will be on October 9th

at our Evening of Art in the Vineyards event at Ponte Winery. The orna- ment is only $15, and a box of 12 cards with a total of 6 designs is only $15 as well. If you would like to purchase one ornament and one box of cards you will receive a com- bination price of only $25. Please visit our debut event or call 951-302-7597 to purchase yours today.
