Hey guys, I know this time of year is tough for alot of people financially, so in now way should anyone feel obligated. I thought it may be a good idea for VTScoop to adopt a less fortunate family for Christmas, so I decided to head this up and get started.
I found a family of 5 kids in the Richmond area, being raised by their Grandparents, the kids range from 6-15 years old. The 6 year old has Downs Syndrome, so as you can imagine, this is a financial struggle for them everyday, much less during the holidays. Ive got clothing sizes, and wish lists from each of the kids I figured itd easier to get started now, so we have some time.
For those interested, we have a few options. You can buy the items yourself and mail them to me, or we can do paypal and ill go get everything. It really depends on what everyone thinks. I just wanted to get the thread started, so we can get some ideas going.

Great idea 5284...I'm in for a donation.

Can we do adopt-a-Grad-Student? . Seriously, though, I'm willing to give what I can via paypal. It won't be too much, but I've been blessed with some great opportunities and I'd be happy to at least try to pass that on.
Great idea. I am in. Anyone who wants to save the postage can drop off their gifts with me at the UVA game (lot 1, space 291) and I will get them to 5284.....I am in Richmond too.
Great idea Count.
For those that want to donate, you can PayPal email@example.com. Please make sure you click personal, and send as gift, that way we don't incur any fees. No amount is too small.
If you want to donate a gift and won't be at the UVA game, post here and I will PM you my address.
Great idea 5284. I will be happy to help
I'm in, both options sound good and good work taking lead--you may be working yourself out of coal in the stocking this year
Kk, downvote away. Screw the poor students, right? They should avoid education because its the devil, right? I seriously don't understand half you folks... Unbelieveable.

@5284 I don't know you personally but hats off to you, you must be a damn good dude. The world needs more people like you.
Just wanted to bump for anyone that wants to drop stuff off at Count or Is tailgate
5284, Send me a PM of an address to send a gift. I would love to help out. Thanks for heading this up!
HUGE thanks to Evan, he brought 2 huge bags full of stuff for the kids. Just wanted to say thanks again.
No problem bro. Let me know if you need anything else.
