May I, through your newspaper, thank all the people who have given up time and money making and buying gifts so we could make up hundreds of beautiful filled shoeboxes to go to needy and destitute children in eastern Europe?All those hours of knitting will bring warmth to hands and heads. Those playing cards, tennis balls and toys will give hours of pleasure. The paper, pencils and pens will enable many to go to school that otherwise could not.Even the bright coverings of the boxes will delight the eyes of those who live in a colourless world with no electricity or sewers and temperatures below zero for months on end.Every gift of love you gave is a tangible expression of God's personal love for them and will help towards a deeper understanding of the coming of the king of love to Earth to transform our lives to become the best and beautiful He made us to be.Thank you so much and God richly bless you all.Pamela A LucasScalwell Lane Seaton
