It's time to send out our donations for 2011. First, let us say thank you to all the divers and their supporters that helped us raise over $5,000.00 this year.
Our Donation recipients include:

Dream Riders of Kentucky
Two Rivers Buddy Ball - New
Puzzle Pieces - New
Salvation Army Angel Tree Program - 10 children
National Children's Cancer Association - New
Hospice Association of Western Kentucky

We are so happy to be able to help these very deserving charities in our area. We are particularly excited about the fact that we have added 3 new charities to our list this year. We will update the charity page with full disclosure of how much each charity received in the next few weeks. We will also include a full description of each association and the wonderful lives they touch..
Again, thank you from all the volunteers at the foundation for your support and we look forward to an even better 2012.
PS We will be shopping for the Angel Tree children on Sunday December 4th. Please watch for more details. We have 8 angels coming to us again this year and we always can use help picking out clothing for the kids.
Angel Tree Shopping Spree
What a great time we had shopping for the Salvation Army Angel Tree kids. This year we had 10 angels to buy for and we moved our Santa operation to Wal-Mart this year which turned out to be great!!
To our shoppers: Angela, Jennifer, Danny, Craig, Carla, Ellan, Jim and Susie
To our gift wrappers: Angela, Jennifer, Carla, Ellan, Maxine and Susie.
The gifts were delivered to the Salvation Army on Tuesday Dec. 6th. Thank you to all the divers that participated in our charity fund-raisers. Without you we could not make a difference in a child's Christmas!! Bless you!!
We were so happy to be able to spend some time with some of the members of Team Karlie. They were so kind and brought the Scuba for Charity Foundation a photo of the kids using the strollers, a plaque of appreciation for our support of their charity and some Team Karlie T-shirts.

Their motto is "Nothing is impossible with a willing heart".
We should all be so lucky to have kids like this in our lives. So the next time you need some inspiration, a great example of strong will coupled with the desire to succeed. You stop by the store and take a look at the picture of these awesome kids!!
