Our Annual Giving Tree!
Each year for the past 25 years our Dance Unlimited family has adopted several families in the community to provide a Christmas for. We ask each family member for a wish list that we put onto our giving tree and invite those that can and would like to, to purchase and wrap the gift for these family members. Your $15 Christmas Show fee is used in addition to Dance Unlimited's generous giving to give Christmas dinner as well as household staples to these families.
A few days before Christmas we invite our Dance Unlimited families to caravan from house to house giving to those in need. It is a great way for the children to understand that not everyone is as fortunate as they are and it warms the heart to give to others.
Here is what some of our "Santas" have to say about the experience:
Last night was one of the best experience i ever had. I knew that giving these gift made people happy but the way that I felt last night after giving the gifts was an overwhelming amount of emotion. The family had so much love and thankfulness and seeing them so happy made me start to cry because I realized how grateful I am. I am able to dance everyday and receive nice things for Christmas. Giving these gift makes you realize even more how lucky you are to have the life you do.- Claire Bowyer
This was my second time around bringing Christmas to families in need. Have to say I was really moved by the experience. The difference that the help will make through the holiday is crystal clear. Watching the excitement and enthusiasm of the kids participating was encouraging. They are getting off on the right foot. Witnessing the tears of joy and appreciation through hugs, handshakes and well wishes is a genuine and cherished experience that I encourage everyone to realize. Thanks for the memory. -Brian Quinn
What a wonderful blessing to be a blessing to someone else. Much, much better than receiving a gift. -Kelly Koonce
I love the joy and hope that we can bring to those that need it the most. To think that I worry about the little things and they weren't going to hava a Christmas. A particular family had two children with cystic fibrosis, it made me realize, that having your health is more important than presents. Thank you Zorene for giving us the opportunity to have this experience and the opportunity to do good for others. - Sophia Boland
