LOVE NOTES FROM SPONSORED FAMILIES

*Names and private information for the following thank you letters have been disclosed for family privacy.

“I would like to say thank you so much for helping provide a Christmas this year for my child. We have had a tough year the two of us and recently relocated to a new house to get out of a bad situation. Because of that the money I normally save throughout the year for Christmas had to go into moving expenses, for my child’s safety and she understood this and told me she didn't expect any for Christmas because she was just grateful to have her family. As a parent this made me feel really proud and sad at the same time. Proud that I have raised such a wonderful, giving, loving, and understanding young women and sad because I was going to be able give her so little for being so wonderful.

I am so grateful that there are other people in our community that understand that some need help at one time or another to provide special things for our children. On Christmas day she will be able to open presents because of you this year that she wasn't expecting and she will be as grateful for that as I am. Thank you so much” - K.K.


“I wanted to take a moment to thank you and the sponsors for everything you have done for my family without you all my children had no guarantee of a Christmas this year. This has been one of the hardest years for our family and this gives us hope that there is good people out there and there is a chance to a happier life in the arms of God. My eyes have been opened up to a whole new light of how big someone's heart can truly be. I once was dreading Christmas morning and a presentless tree but now I am so excited I literally can't wait to see my kids faces on Christmas morning it warms my heart and I can never thank you all enough.” - A.W.


“Thank you SO much for sponsoring my children! I was overwhelmed with emotion when I saw the gifts. It has been a very tough few years for us and your donations have taken a huge weight off of our shoulders. I could never thank you enough. My babies are going to be SO excited Christmas morning!!! GOD BLESS YOU & Merry Christmas! ❤❤❤

And Rosey... you (and your volunteers) are one amazing, beautiful, kind soul. God is using you for some truly incredible things. The night before i contacted you, I gave all my worries to God and put all my problems in his hands, I knew I couldn't handle them alone. I saw your Facebook post about the Christmas Angels the next day. I knew that was God. Ive been following your photography for years, since you did a friend of mine's photos for the first time. I had never spoken to you and was extremely embarrassed and nervous to reach out to a stranger for help. You never made me feel ashamed & you were so kind to me. I know you don't really know me, but you & will always hold a special place in my heart & I will never forget your kindess and what you have done for my family. You are an inspiration to our community. God's love shines right from you! I know you asked for a thank you to the sponsors, but I had to give you a huge thank you also. I pray one day our family will be in a position where we can pay it forward and help others in need just like you & your VRP family has. Sorry for being so mushy, but I couldn't help it. 😂 thank you, thank you, thank you! Merry Christmas & God bless! ❤” - A.V.


“I want to say thank you to all of you and especially Rosie for doing this. This has brought so much relief to me during this stressful holiday season. I've worried so much about how I was going to make this happen without letting my kids down. This was such a blessing. Thank you so much Rosie and my sponsors. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.” - A.C.
