ABOUT OPERATION: A CAJUN CHRISTMAS
A Cajun Christmas is
a project of The
Giving Circle, Inc, an
ever-expanding community of people acting
together to help make the world a better place.
the great destruction and suffering caused by any catastrophe like
the recent U.S. Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, also comes an immediate
out pouring of love and compassion from so many people. The reality
is that given time, we who are away from the destruction and suffering
start to forget the long term suffering and needs of people affected.
This is a reality. When the holidays arrive with all its hustle
and bustle, it is easy to forget these poor and sweet beings affected
by this tragedy. These people will not know the real holidays, no
can imagine there can be few things harder for a parent than knowing
they must tell a child Santa will not come this year, let alone,
no home of their own and very little food. I believe we can do something
to help many in Louisiana enjoy a special holiday.
My plan started out as us working as a family and a few friends
to fill a truck and drive it down to Louisiana in November, and
help as many as we could. My belief in this idea grew, as I thought
about it more and talked to friends about it. Now, my dream and
belief is that we can travel to Louisiana this December, in not
just one truck, but a whole convoy of trucks made up of trucks from
communities from around the country. Trucks filled by people, clubs,
organizations, businesses, schools, churches and temples all working
together as community, as family to help our family hit by Hurricane
Katrina and Rita. A convoy of Compassion
filled with a Cajun Christmas. A convoy of toys,
books, and gifts and joy and hope to thousands of families.
