A NOTE FROM GRANNY……
For those of you that don’t know, Earth Angels IS a community event. Gifts are donated by the community to sponsor a child at Christmas, who otherwise might think Santa forgot them. AND…Where from the very young to our seniors gather and become Santa’s Elves and help with the picking up, sorting, wrapping & distribution of gifts. Scouts who volunteer, whether boys or girls, earn points towards their community badges. Where letters & cards are gathered and sent lovingly abroad to let our servicemen & women know we haven’t forgotten, and a candle burns bright in all our hearts for their safe arrival home. Where each year when the season begins, a single bell can be heard ringing in the distance, and by Christmas morning..a CRESCENDO of bells are ringing in the hearts of Earth Angels here in Ogle County that make the season brighter in someone’s life and family! This miracle happens out of the kindness & generosity and opened hearts of a community of people..meaning YOU! I could not do, what I do, without everyone’s participation!
Thanks to ALL of YOU…this is our 11th Earth Angel season! God Bless! AND…I am proud to say, each year has been a success, and we have never had to turn anyone away! That’s pretty AWESOME….Don’t you think?
So come Christmas morning, IF you listen …you will hear a CRESCENDO of bells ringing here in Ogle County ( and from those who donate from a far..! ) coming from the hearts of ALL our Earth Angels !
And you will find this Granny with tears of joy….
Sooooo…EARTH ANGELS…LETS MAKE THIS HAPPEN ONCE AGAIN..!
“Every time you hear a bell ring…an Angel gets his wings” !
And Ogle County has the largest group of bell ringing Earth Angels!
Thank You & God Bless!
