      Suzanne, thanks so much for posting this!

      Every year our family (three kids 17, 14, and 11, plus

      dh & me) adopt a family from the sa tree at the mall and

      spend money out of our christmas budget – which is

      smaller and smaller each year! – to buy the gifts. this is

      money that we would normally spend on each other.

      as it’s gotten harder and harder to stretch our dollars

      to cover a family this way, i’ve searched for other,

      equally satisfying options. i believe your idea is it!

      marvelous post!
