Happy New Year to all of you Chicks!
We hope you had a Merry Christmas and we want to thank you for all of your support during 2013. While we did not host a Chicktime activity in December, we were able to deliver Christmas presents to the girls at Casa de Milagros—thanks to all of you that contributed financially to enable us to make this happen!
The girls each received a very cute and colorful rolling carry-on bag for their travels as they leave the shelter and journey to their next destination in life. They were so excited when they saw the bags. The girls are most grateful for anything they receive. We also want to thank the wonderful ladies who made the most beautiful hand-made Spanish Christmas cards. They were so special.
The girls are beginning to become more comfortable and familiar with us. As we snacked on a tray of Christmas goodies, we talked and had lots of laughs. We want to convey a message of love–whether it is in words or a smile and a hug.
We also want to thank the staff at Seton Home/Casa de Milagros for being so welcoming, kind and accommodating to us.
As we enter 2014, we ask that you please consider hosting an activity. We encourage you to enlist friends, co-workers, or members of your church group to help. It is not a big financial or time commitment. Sometimes the simplest activities are the best. Think about something you have a passion for. Is it cooking, baking, gardening, crafts, yoga, or dancing? Please consider sharing your time and talents and contact:

The following dates are currently open:
Happy New Year!
