Not all mums are in the situation to buy all the things their children wish for. So when I saw the message on facebook about the Womens Refuge Porirua desperate for presents for the teens for the Christmas Party, they are having today, I drove to KMart and picked up the lot. I met an awesome famiIy in the longest line for check up ever, who helped me get it all to my car. People are good!
At the refuge I got greeted by some lovely women giving their time, sorting and wrapping and making miracles happen, for the mums that got away, rescued themselves and their children and are now set for a better life in 2016.
And I thank them for letting me help, and feel good about Christmas.
Happy Christmas holidays everyone!
