We'd like to thank all our readers and friends for chipping in cash to help out our boy Patrick, age 8. Here's a recap.
OrangeCoat gave the Yeti your donations and ours and set him free wandering the aisles of Wally World in Taylors. We're not sure if it was the Mongoose in our cart or the little boys underwear, but we were getting weird looks the entire trip.
Anyway, it should be a good Christmas when our boy wakes up to find a slick looking Mongoose "Hoop D" freestyle bike and a bunch of other gifts under the tree. Just to be sure he gets the full experience we bought socks and underwear.
“At the end of the day” we think Hands on the Holidays offered an opportunity for us to “Think outside the box” and deliver a “Win-win” “Solution” extending beyond our “Core competency”. This demonstrates the “Synergy” that can be achieved between the public and private sector when you “Take it offline” and “Redeploy people” for a good cause. Alright, I'll stop with the buzzwords. Sorry, it was a topic at today's Bag Lunch Thursday.
Thanks again. Next year we'll try not to wait until the last minute and see if we can gather enough support for even more kids.
Our best for a happy, healthy holiday season and a great 2008.
