Greetings from William and Chandra Vandry of Vandry Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!
On December 14, 2014 we will sponsor a Christmas party in East Austin. Our goal is to provide much needed items such as coats, blankets and gloves as well as a fun Christmas bag with candy and toys for approximately 100 children and a group of senior citizens. We will provide food and personally deliver these items to children in need.
We have worked with this community in the Montopolis neighborhood since 2012. In 2013 we helped to host a Christmas party. The children received toys, a care package of essential items (soap, toothbrush, toothpaste etc.) and had snacks and drinks.
In the past we have provided support with 100% of our own personal funds, but the size of our project has grown, and we need support from our community to make this happen.
We appreciate the support from the Christmas angels of the Austin Police Department, and especially Officer Fausto Rodriguez, who has been essential in coordinating this years event with us.
We hope that with your much needed support, this year will be even more successful than last year in bringing a little Christmas joy to a poverty stricken area of Austin.
Our goal of $4,000 is set so that about $40 can be spent per child, and every dollar will go directly to this project. You can also donate gently used clothing and toys, which can be dropped off at Vandry Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at 8650 Spicewood Springs Rd. Ste 123, Austin, TX 78759.
Every donation counts, no matter the amount, help us make a difference for those in need this holiday season! Thank you for your generosity and have a Merry Christmas! To donate, please go to www.gofundme.com/vandry
