“Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead.


 The people and organizations on this page have touched the Children of Christmas Past with more than simple donations and hours of their time and expertise.  They show professionalism, integrity, compassion and countless acts of kindness.  Without them, the Children of Christmas Past simply couldn’t be.

It is a privilege to receive assistance and know this tremendous group of volunteers and supporters.
