Over the Top!!!!!!!!!!

Ok … so, you may or may not remember my VERY FIRST blog post … but in it I stated that I was feeling overwhelmed.

Well, I’m feeling that way again.

But, it’s not stress-related.

I’m overwhelmed by the power of LOVE …

… αγαπη  (agapē)

… caritas

… charity

Thanks to the generous and loving hearts of friends, family, and perfect strangers, Jake has surpassed his goal of collecting 100 purses!

If you dream it, you can do it!!!!!

On Tuesday, December 8, 2015, we read the following announcement from Dreams For Kids DC Executive Director, Glenda Fu:

“We have astounding great news! Jake has broke his goal of 100 purses for Dress for Success Washington, DC! We are at 180 purses and about 800 toiletries, meaning approximately 5 little presents going into each bag for underprivileged women in DC! Congrats Jake – you are our hero!”

Ummmmm … what?!?!?!?

Thank you all so much for your support!
