POSTED ON DECEMBER 22, 2010:
This year UTW sends out another big thank you to our readers who participated in "Christmas for Kids." Each year, we try to find the giving spirit behind this celebrated season and offer an opportunity to spread the joy and love of Christmas.
Urban Tulsa Weekly's sixth annual campaign was a success and we have all of you to thank. The piles of beautifully wrapped gifts and shiny new bikes grew in our office for weeks. Children throughout the Oklahoma Department of Human Services foster care system will have a better Christmas thanks to readers who took the extra time and money to invest in children they had never met.
The campaign was launched with triumphant stories of adoption and the lives it changed. If you missed our coverage on adoption awareness, you can view all of the stories online at urbantulsa.com. If you are considering adoption, please contact Jane Eneff at DHS, 918-581-2552.
Our deepest thanks, Tulsa, for coming through during this difficult economic time. The giving spirit is always alive among our readers and we are looking forward to seeing what you can do next year. We hope to see you all during the 2011 "Christmas for Kids" campaign!
Thank you again and Merry Christmas.
