How about a new and used book store nomination Book Cottage is having a 7 year anniversary on April 15th..
Admin On if this is ok. We have matched over 115 families in just a few weeks. For Christmas all over the country mostly Michigan. , If anyones interested in adopting families for Christmas or sharing with others to adopt a family. I have families that are having bad years. I will start posting the families in my Santa Group and their stories. If you see that family you would like to help and deliver to . I have Santa suits I can also borrow you to make it fun for everyone. The reason I love Christmas so much. Back in 1991 or 92 . A week before Christmas. I lived in the small town of Hillsdale at Bear lake. My husband and I were teen parents. I was 17 with 3 children we owned a dumpy trailer. I was cooking dinner for the kids on a hot plate and the trailer caught on fire. I barely got the kids out and ran back in for the puppy but feared the kids were babies and would follow me back in. I ran as fast as I could. I was standing outside holding my kids hands and the other in my arms. People were screaming is everyone out. It was dark . Fire was blazing. I was like in shocked. Just watching the fire thinking I dont have anything. Just the pjs the kids have on. The whole neighborhood of people that rushed to us kept saying we will help you. Dont worry your gonna be ok. I just stood there not saying anything they were taking kids from my hands to help me. They were right there arranging how each one was gonna help me. To get a nicer place to live. People drove out to my fathers just to give me envelopes with money boxes and boxes of stuff. My kids had best Christmas ever. I told them it was to much but they insisted. Just more and more stuff. They raised money to help us get a nicer trailer. Its was amazing strangers wanted to help us. They talked to me like I was important. How could I thank a whole town. I had nothing to give. Then another year so lost not knowing how I could get the kids gifts. I never asked anyone for help. But to my surprise I opened my door and Santa was standing there with a box of food and presents for my children. Oh My did they help so much. It was not as much the gifts. as a mom it was sweet. My kid thought they were just everything Santa came to them. But it was how it affected me. Like why, how and who would just want to help us. Still to this day I'm not sure who it was. With nothing in return for them. I wish I knew just to say thanks. So I thought at that time someday that will be me. Someday my Thanks will be to do that to. I'm gonna help others. Just following every Christmas became a huge Holiday for me. Even with not much I did anything I could. I started a business in Hillsdale and thought I have enough to share a little. I was 25. Then I was adopting a family and posting how It excited me. Then a few families as years past by. People started asking me how they can get a family to adopt to do the same so I set out to find families for them also.. That is honestly in need. That someday it would affect them as it did me. They maybe would grow also and pass it on. My kids all got involved and helped wrap and did the jobs of delivering. They loved its so much. I seen that was so amazing for them. I started doing events. My new husband loved my spirit and works hard and knows why I love it so much. We give we send Santa we donate. Best times we have had and the Community and family enjoyed it. I started matching families across the country for lots of people through all our Pipeline friends and coworkers. Then I started a program that's local and countrywide on facebook I never planned for it to get to be so big . Many years we adopted over 40 families and sent Santa to their homes. All of my groups started jumping in and wanting to help. Its heartwarming. But I was not gonna say no if people want to help to I will do whatever I can to make it happen. No matter what it was the most awesome thing ever. Its not a huge amount but many small programs and groups of people coming together there should be no one that goes without Christmas. A special time in every childs life. Everyone if they were affected by the kindness of strangers as I was. Will for sure help someone also someday. Appreciated and Happy Holidays!!!https://www.facebook.com/groups/EverybodyNeedsASanta/?ref=group_header

https://www.jeannesjourney.store/ I have written a whole chapter about my twenty years in Jackson as I I lived in Jackson, Michigan 1952-1972. My husband was an award winning Jackson Citizen Patriot staff photographer for over ten years. We then opened Linley Colour Studio at 145 W. Mason and 145 W. Michigan Avenue 1962-1972. We were one of the first studios in the U.S. to produce ALL color photography! We won many state and national photography awards. My childen attended St. Mary's School. My husband was involved in the Rose Festival for several years, Optimist Club, he was a Jackson City Commissioner and a Jackson Planning Commissioner in the 60's. He was a Lector at St. Mary's where five of my six children attended school. I was President of St. Mary's Mother's Club in the 60's. In other words, we were very active in Jackson! I have very fond memories of my twenty years in Jackson.
