Survivor Stories: Christmas 2019
Thank you for bringing so much joy to the lives of survivors this holiday season with your thoughtful gifts! Here's what this Christmas meant to them:
 
"I've never had a Christmas like that in my entire life. It meant a lot that someone thought about me that day."
 
"I have always been the one giving and not receiving. It left me speechless. It meant the world."
 
"Getting gifts this year made me feel very special and that someone cared."
 
"Having enough faith to do this for me, someone you don't even know, and yet you gave me the greatest gift: joy."
 
"Grateful and blessed that you blessed my children this year with a gift that made them smile. I am also grateful that you were here for me. Thank you Selah family for extending your love and help."
 
"It’s been 3 years since l've had a Christmas and receiving the gifts I got really felt good. I never felt like I deserved presents in the past, so it really made my Christmas."
 
"I'm so grateful to have received such wonderful gifts and to know that strangers are so wonderful and caring. It really reminded me how amazing and loving the world can be."
 
"It felt really good walking into my mom’s place with gifts for my children. You made me feel like a mom, I am so grateful for you and making mine and my children’s Christmas."
