The South Florida Chapter of Women in Ecommerce™ is hosting our first Dish and a Wish Holiday Party.
As part of our holiday celebration Women in Ecommerce™ has adopted a family through *Touch-A-Heart Adoption and Family Central. The family consists of a single mom with 5 children who need necessities, food, clothing, and toys. With your support we can raise enough money to help them with all their needs and all their WISHES. Our goal is to raise $400. We are asking all members and guests to donate a minimum of $10 and we will do the shopping.
About our Adopted Family: This is a single mother raising five children. The mother is 35 years old, she has all boys – 15 years old, 7 years old, 5 years old, and twins age 2. Mom is suffering from high blood pressure and Congested Heart Failure. She normally works full-time as long as her health is ok. Missing work has caused a major financial set back. She also has two children with a lot of learning delays. This family would greatly appreciate any help for the holidays.
