    Hi Stephanie,

    Thanks for posting the information about the Holiday Magic, a gift for children of all ages 2008 CD! It is a great cause and there's nothing like seeing the kids faces light up when they get the CD. I also love being able to give some of the great talent we have some exposure on the CD!

    I truly appreicate your generosity!

      What a great opportunity to give! I wrote a blog entry not long ago about "planting and harvesting"...I think this is great example of planting in the direction of others and allowing them to harvest the joy, care, compassion and love!

      BRAVO and thank you, Jeff, for planting your talents and efforts into the lives of precious children!

        Hi Brian,
        Thanks for you kind words! I appreciate it. Your blog sounds great! This is the 6th year I've done this CD with the help of some very talented people and when I see the kids faces light up it is so inspiring.
