“I would like to use the $500 gift certificate to purchase a new couch or beds for my sons because the things I have are old and worn. My couch was from a friend of a friend and has a hole in it. I need more sitting room. My sons need a new bedroom set like a bunk bed so my little list child can be out of his crib and in a big boy bed and so my boys can share a room.” Robin – February, 2013
“I would use the 500.00 gift certificate to buy a new couch set because I have always had hand me down furniture that i am appreciative of… The last couch set I got belonged to my grandparents… It’s dusty rose in color and the fabric on the arms are wearing thin and has on occasion been described as “a sinkhole”. Now that the kids have reached a good age, it would be nice to have some furniture that was new and would last for the next phase of our life. Not to mention, I would really appreciate new furniture that fit my tiny apartment’s living room. The others seem rather large…” Dawn – February, 2013
“I would like to use the $500.00 gift certificate to buy a couch and a bed because my mom sleeps on a pretty beaten up couch. Before she had a couch bed that was broken because my big brother and I played and jumped on it. The couch that she sleeps on has nails sticking out, and fluff falling out of it. We covered it with a piece of wood on top of a spring under the cushion. My dog, Dodge, is a black lab mix and likes to sleep on it with mom. Dodge often pushes mom off the couch while sleeping. She is a student. She studies a lot until early in the morning so she needs a comfortable bed. I would like to use the gift certificate to buy a couch and a bed. That is how I would use it. I would appreciate being considered for such a wonderful gift!” Ethan – February, 2013
“Hello, Owen is a little at Big Brothers and Sisters. He would like to use a five hundred dollar gift certificate to purchase a bed and if possible some shelving of some sort for his bedroom! Our furniture got eaten by mice when our stuff was in a storage facility last year and everything was destroyed (with no recourse from that facility). Owen’s bedroom is very small as is our whole living space, and these items would change our life. It would make it easier for Owen to sleep and have friends over. Shelves or dressers would make it better for him to see his books and play with his toys. Thank you for providing an opportunity to enter for such a helpful, generous gift. Yours truly.” Owen & Dawn – April, 2013
