Okay, I've been trying to work up something that might serve as an announcement for folks on other boards. Help 'splain what we're doing and how we're doing it this year. Thoughts, suggestions, critiques, etc. are heartily welcome!
=============================================================================
If you have not yet heard of the Foolish Elves, get out from under your rock and read up on prior year events:

Up to speed? Good. Now pay close attention, cuz this year you -- yes, YOU -- get a chance to join in the fun!

This year Uncle Jeffy, aka TheHotFool, who lives in West Virginia, is spearheading the project. (Don't worry. No actual spears will be used in the completion of this project.) What the Elves have decided to do this year is ....

{drumroll}

a literacy project!

As if that weren't enough to get you excited, I do magic. I can read your mind. You are thinking ....

What can I do to help?

Glad you asked! We've got one heck of a snowball rolling, and it's only gonna get bigger!

1. Soup labels. Do you, anyone in your family, anybody you know, eat Campbell's Soup? Progresso? Anything from the list on this page?
http://www.labelsforeducation.com/eligible_products.asp?cpovisq=08ydQL9JKwCSGqOgska2lPUhjKL82DT%2B
If so, collect the labels. Uncle Jeffy will be using those to help [school to be announced].

2. Boxtops 4 Education. Do you or anyone you know eat General Mills cereals? If so, save the boxtops and mail them to TheHotFool.

3. Boxtops 4 Education Shopping Portal. Do you or anyone you know intend to, oh, I dunno, buy stuff this season? If so, please consider going through this link
http://www.boxtops4education.com
because up to 10% of the purchase price will go toward [school to be announced].

4. Packages/Donations. To be mailed to TheHotFool, aka Uncle Jeffy:
a. Money
b. Books
c. Bookbags
d. School supplies (pens, pencils, eraser, protractors, all that cool school stuff)

TheHotFool requests that you send e-mail letting him know to be on the lookout for whatever it is you're sending.
Uncle Jeffy's e-mail addy is JAYHOT7@JUNO.COM

5. Flat Stanley Mailing List
