Default Help give some kids a good Christmas

Each holiday season my company adopts about 10-15 kids from the local school district who otherwise would not have a Christmas. The counselor tries to select students in legitimate need based on a variety of factors. My company provides us (the shoppers) with the money to buy them clothes, necessities and some of the items from their wish list. Normally I have about $75 left per kid for fun stuff and they ask for things like puzzles, video games, RC cars, etc. This year I got 3 brothers and in addition to the normal items all 3 asked for St. Louis Cardinals baseball cards. I was shocked so I grabbed these 3 immediately. Im going to go through all my boxes and give them all my Cardinals (being a Cubs fan I dont have much) but I thought Id solicit some forums to see if anyone had anything to donate or sell dirt cheap. Im sure theyd be equally excited about base cards as they would the better stuff. Anything is appreciated.

I know Im not a veteran on here and I cant offer much in the way of proof but Im hoping you guys can help out. I think its pretty great that 3 fairly young people are into baseball cards. PM me for shipping info.

If you're a hater or one of those that think everything is a scam please don't reply. I'm sincerely trying to help these kids have a great Christmas and usually spend a good amount of my own money as well.

I think I have an Jon Jay prospect RC refractor in here somewhere. I'll also scan for some other Cardinals, although I don't have much baseball and get back to ya. Awesome gesture by your company, and I hope you can get some help on here. I'm sure you will.

-If anyone has trepidations, perhaps you could give them your company information for them to verify before shipping? Just a thought.

Good luck with it.

Lobo, as people will see with the PM's my work address is where they're going and I'm on the website. We're a good company in St. Louis and many of us managers look forward to doing this every year. We've gotten amazing feedback from the families we've helped as the entire St. Louis area has no shortage of truly needy kids.

I worry every year that my money and time is going to some piece of trash who drinks their paycheck or is a druggie but then I remember that I'm not getting them anything, I'm getting the kids stuff. I suppose I can't be certain that the parents don't sell some of the stuff but that's why we get them socks, underwear, clothes and necessities as well. Not much market for tube socks.

Anyway, I truly appreciate everyones response. I think I've replied to all PM's and replies to this post. If I've missed anyone please let me know.

I do something similar at my work called the Salvation Army Angel Tree program. and I LOVE these programs. They're the only charity where 100% of your donations go directly to a child in need for Christmas. You aren't donating your money to a charity that uses 20% off the top for administration purposes and then gives the other 80% to adults who are in that position because of poor decisions and/or laziness. Please PM me your address and I'll get some Cards cards headed your way

PM headed your way.

For everyone that asked, I need the stuff in hand by Dec 17th so the wrappers have a few days to get everything wrapped. I will separate things into 3 lots, one for each kid, and box it up. We do it right with nice wrapping, bows, the whole 9 yards.

I've just got to say that you guys ROCK! I'm very appreciative and I bet everyone at my company will be really impressed by the turnout.

Who knows, maybe this will keep a few of these youngsters in the hobby as they get older.

I was at the Sun Times show last weekend and multiple times I saw dealers giving kids cards. One kid I was watching got a $5 bill from his dad and spent a bunch of time pulling cards out of the $.10 and $.25 boxes and had a stack at exactly $5. The dealer told him to keep his money and enjoy the card. You should've seen the kids face, completely awestruck. He looked at his dad and his dad thanked the guy. I think we forget sometimes how easy it is to make a 10 year olds day with something simple.

Thanks again.

It sure looks that way. BTW, I see you're from Central IL. I grew up about an hour north of Peoria, where you from?
