Dear Sally,

On behalf of our Board of Directors and Staff, I would like to sincerely thank you for your generous knitting donation to our Christmas Basket Campaign. Your wonderful donation of hats, mitts, scarves, and blankets for these baskets was truly appreciated.

The Christmas 2007 Campaign made the holidays special for one hundred forty young mothers and their children who each received a Christmas Basket made especially for them. It would not have been possible to provide the baskets without your generous support. Thoughtful caring people, such as yourselves, help to make a tremendous difference in the lives of these young families.

We would like to thank you and ‘Casting off the Cold’ for helping us make Christmas for these young mothers and their children a joyous time. This Campaign lets them know they are loved and cared for. Your support gives them hope for the year to come.
