This must be the 7th year that you have not received a Christmas card from the Stainsby’s. Instead we have vowed to provide a donation in lieu of buying the cards and postage stamps. As I look back on previous years I can see we have purchased an IT workshop, a donkey in Ethiopia, “dunnies” in the Pacific and assisted the Salvation Army’s homeless program, to name a few.
This year we will help the refugee children of Syria – displaced through the war and ethnic tensions.
Attached here is Bruce’s 2013 Christmas letter, an update on the Stainsby’s for the past year.
So to our many family and friends who have found this page, have a wonderful Christmas and very best wishes for a sparkling new 2014.
