Last night many real estate agents who chose a child to buy for Christmas met at Maggiano's at the Domain, sponsored by Austin PT50 and Independence Title. They provided wrapping paper, ribbon, tags, food and wine and we wrapped until the presents were all ready for the Austin Angels.
The Austin Angels mission statement says it all for who they are and what they do:
"Walk alongside children in the foster care system, as well as their caretakers, by offering consistent support through intentional giving, relationship building, and mentor-ship."
This year there are many families on the waiting list for Austin Angels assistance and these gifts were for families on the wait. I chose a little 2 year old girl named Eva and I was able to find everything on her list so hope she has a special Christmas!
