Secret Santa and Forever Families Update for Adoption Coalition of Texas
Adoption Coalition of Texas (ACT)

November, 2011

Secret Santa Gift Program We are receiving the “Gift Wish Lists” from caseworkers, so we are ready to sign up donors!  If you would like to be a Secret Santa and purchase Christmas gifts for a Central Texas foster child, then please email your name, email address and contact phone number to  We will start matching donors to kids immediately.  The gift drop off days will be Wednesday-Saturday December 7th-10th and caseworkers will be picking up the gifts the following week.  Once you sign up to be a donor, we'll send you all the details.  We are fortunate to have several wonderful, hard-working veteran volunteer elves helping us again this year.  Cris Campbell & Stacey Reinhart will be heading up the donor and child-matching activities while Terri Savage will handle mailed gifts and some special donor groups.  All three are coordinating gift drop off at their places of business as well.  Thanks to Cash Construction, Environmental Safety Services, Austin Real Estate Partners, and Roadway Specialties for offering to be North Pole satellite gift drop locations this year!  If you have any questions please email Thank you in advance for helping spread holiday cheer to these very special children!    Wendy's Collage Once again, the 32 Greater Austin Area Wendy's stores will all be displaying a large, beautiful collage of Heart Gallery portraits.  Look for them to be in all stores by the end of next week.  If you live in the Austin area from Georgetown to Southpark Meadows, be sure to go inside your local Wendy's and check it out!  Thank you Pisces Foods and Wendy's for continuing to raise awareness of Central Texas foster children waiting for their forever family!    Forever Families Every week Austin Time Warner cable channel YNN airs a profile of a foster child or sibling group waiting for their forever family.  We know many of you faithfully watch these segments live on YNN every Sunday or on the Adoption Coalition website.  If you have missed a segment, they can be found at   We encourage you to watch these segments and share them with your family, friends, neighbors, church members -- anyone who can help spread the word about these children who are legally free for adoption and are ready for a permanent, loving home.  The video links are also posted each week on our facebook page.   As always Adoption Coalition staff is ready to serve and help in any way we can.  Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions.     --  MURRAY S. CHANOW Executive Director Adoption Coalition of Texas (512) 450-8608
