Four years ago my little brother wrote a Santa letter. Instead of toys for himself, he asked for 20 blankets to give to the poor in our community of Santa Barbara. That Christmas morning Santa brought Jordan all the blankets he asked for, and that afternoon we spent our time handing them out. It was an eye opening experience. Sometime later I asked my brother if he wanted to do this every year. He said "yes" with a smile, and I've made it it my mission to see how far we can take his good deed.
One year later we were fortunate enough to go to Goa, India, over Christmas. We continued our new found tradition by traveling to an orphanage and a home for the elderly on Christmas day to hand out gifts. Those small acts brought a lot of smiles.
This year we are back in Santa Barbara and hoping to raise enough money in order to buy sleeping bags for the homeless in our community. Our modest goal is to give away 100 sleeping bags. Will you help us get there?
Two ways to help us:
One, donate any amount you can towards our sleeping bag goal for this Christmas. Go to gofundme.com/the-jordan-elf-project
Two, become a Jordan Elf, get a T-Shirt, help raise more money, help hand out sleeping bags and start your own Jordan Project in your area.
I'm Jaden, big brother and proud Jordan Elf!
