One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Our neighbors have taken in a foster child who up until now has had an incredibly unstable life. She has moved 20 times in 3 years, each time leaving behind any personal items she had. The girl is kin to them, but they had no legal grounds to help beyond offering. The opportunity to take in this little girl arose when the state took her away from her Meth addicted abusive parents.

At one time she had a collection of Snow Globes that her Grandparents, who were truck drivers, bought her on their travels. This was one of the things left behind one of the many times her parents were evicted for not paying the rent.

Here’s where the Good Deed comes in. We thought it would be fun and healthy for her to find out that there are good people in the world, and you can help by sending her a Snow Globe this winter.

If you are so inclined, send your package to:

Lilly c/o
Robert & Jennifer Campbell
318 Ray Simerly Road
Hampton, TN 37658

Happy holidays, and Thanks a bunch,

Melanie and Scott

Thanks, Jim!!!

If anyone else out there can find it in your heart to send her something than you too can contribute to the Holiday Magic. I have my hopes up that she will get 10 or 12. Scott promises to build her a pretty wooden shelf to display them on!!

It took a little searching but I found a one with local flavor.  Hope it arrives in time and helps to make Lilly's Christmas a memorable one.

I forgot to mention that my daugter sent a snowglobe, and a friend of mine gave me a "train of snowglobes" which I sent along.
Can't wait to hear how many she received!
