Thanks for letting us participate, what a great experience. My kids are young but still seemed to understand the message that Christmas is just as much about giving as receiving. Thanks for all you do!

Our family was very grateful! We gave the children a few presents to open today and the rest to be opened on Christmas Day. The 5 year old boy said I only need 1 present! So sweet! It has been a rewarding experience and we plan to participate again next year!
It was very enjoyable and we would like to do the same next year for 2 - 3 families. Thank you again for giving me and my daughter a wonderful Christmas seeing their (the family's) faces when we arrived. Happy holidays to you and your family.
We had a great time shopping for them and it was such a rewarding experience for our family. It's definitely going to be the beginning of a tradition! Christmas is about giving and loving one another. We all have ups and downs and it's important to lift each other up when we can. Such a blessing to be able to participate with this group.

On behalf of all my colleagues at Allied Integrated Marketing’s Las Vegas office, thank you so much for letting us participate in AAOK this year. We were grateful for the chance to spread a bit of Christmas cheer to “our” three families, and humbled to deliver the gifts to them on Christmas Eve.
