Santa Needs Help Too!

A “short & sweet” (Peg used to love saying those words) post today, since we are busy decking the halls, and shopping for presents for the kids of Dignity Housing!

As you may know by now, this is the season we need your help more than ever. Our list of children we wish to provide gifts for this season is a lengthy one, so your donations of new unwrapped toys, games, gift cards, etc., are greatly needed, and always greatly appreciated. HELP US OUT!

Just head online HERE or you can send a new unwrapped gift for a girl or boy ages 1-14 yrs to us at:

Bringing gifts (and smiles!) to children in need  

happy girl

Peg’s Presents is not only about Christmas gifts. We also love to provide BIRTHDAY gift bags to the children of Dignity Housing as well (so they have another reason to smile on their special day) but we do need your help.

You may know that we teamed up with the online fundraising service Go Fund Me, at www.gofundme.com/pegspresents so we can provide toys to children all year long.

If you can give a little or a lot, we’d be so grateful (and so would many happy kids)! Just click on the link www.gofundme.com/pegspresents to donate.

Any amount really helps!

Here I am hoping for a win for Peg’s and the kids we serve!

I would be honored to be a chosen recipient of Marie Forleo’s B School Scholarship Marie Forleo’s B School for Peg’s Presents. Many of you know this foundation was named after my Mom who passed away suddenly on Thanksgiving 2010. My video explains a bit more, so please have a look.

Peg’s Presents is a giving foundation who brings gifts (and smiles!) to children in need.
We make kid’s lives a bit more magical, one gift at a time :)

THANK YOU,

pegs letter

We received this letter from Dignity Housing’s executive director acknowledging the smiles we at Peg’s Presents brought to children in need this holiday season.

This letter had us tearing up, but in a good way. It also made us realize that we can all do more for those in need, don’t you agree?

As always, we count on your donations, so please go to GO FUND ME to help us keep children smiling.

THANK YOU, we cannot do this without you!

Bringing gifts (and smiles!) to children in need

Our Philly friend and neighbor, William “Bill” Kosman, is a prolific artist on a mission to lower gun violence stats.

In his words, “Of course, painting is my profession, and I’ve been bending your ear a lot about my art these last few years. But, like a lot of folk, I get a bunch of ideas, and once in a while I feel driven to express them. I’d been upset for a long time about the human toll of gun violence, and then one day the story just came to me. When I feel something strongly, most often the words or the brush strokes come fast and furious.”

You can view one of his original paintings (above) and a link to his story is below. Spread the word if you can — I think we’d all like to see the world in a better place without any senseless and sad shootings.

THANK YOU & HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Here on the East Coast, our sunny beautiful summer season has almost come to a close.

Some parents are rejoicing in the fact that the kids are back to school, while others feel like part-time “empty nesters” and really miss having their little side-kicks around them on a daily basis.   I do love the Fall, but I find the next several months always seem to fly by so very quickly, and before you know it, that jolly bearded man in the red suit will be making the rounds delivering gifts to many fortunate children across the world.

Yes, Christmastime will be upon us before we can practically spell  m-i-s-t-l-e-t-o-e!  Which means it’s time for us at Peg’s Presents to work on fundraising to keep our GIFT PANTRY stocked with new toys, so we can give the children of Dignity Housing some reasons to smile this season.

We’ve teamed up with the online fundraising service Go Fund Me, at www.gofundme.com/pegspresents.  If you can help a little or a lot, all you do is click on the link www.gofundme.com/pegspresents to donate. Please know that ANY amount really helps!

We’ll be back soon with some photos of the gifts which will be given out to make a child in need SMILE this season, thanks to you!

happy kids
