Has anyone ever volunteered at a Salvation Army Angel Tree? We picked two angels off of the tree, and bought them the specific presents they requested. I went to grab the cards out of my purse and they are gone. I feel like total crap and I’m freaking out, because there doesn’t seem to be anyone who can help me figure this out…and I probably just ruined two kids’ Christmas. We got a boy and a girl and I know the girl’s name and age, and the boy’s age but not the name.
If anyone has any advice, please let me know. This particular tree has no volunteers – you just pick up the angel yourself and turn it in to any center. The only thing I could find on the site was that any “forgotten” angels will get generic gifts. I hate that…I bought these kids exactly what they wanted. I feel awful…I don’t know what I did with them.
I hope we can track them down by their specific wishes. The girl wanted a Bratz doll, so I bought her two different ones with a bunch of accessories. The boy wanted “K’nex or a dinosaur,” so we bought an awesome k’nex kit, some matchbox cars and I am going to get him a dinosaur toy (Target didn’t have any). I went to look at the cards to see what size clothing they needed and they were gone. jsadgkahgdsjkagldjsgha why am I the loser at life?
