What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Christmas?…
That’s right a giant “IT.”
We are building a GIANT IT in the middle of our commons… well, the idea is to build a giant it in the middle of the commons. I hope we can pull it off (fingers crossed). You might be thinking, that should easy. Well the kicker is that we want it to be 14 feet tall and made with gift wrapped boxes, and lots of boxes at that.
People have bringing in boxes all day. Some are probably doing it now. We had one person bring in 20+ boxes last night from his printing company.
Today, I was driving up and down Shawnee Mission Pkwy going into every place that looked like it would have a box to ask them if they had any to give away. I didn’t have much luck. I’m glad my wife was able to help me out with her donating some of their adult diapers boxes from the nursing home she works at. After putting it on twitter/facebook, I had some people volunteer to bring some and one friend of mine was able to load me up with as 40+ boxes and might be able to get me some more tomorrow.
Thanks to all of you who are bringing boxes.
Tomorrow, we wrap. Hopefully we have enough boxes and hopefully we get enough help to wrap these boxes. The bad thing is I have a day of appointments tomorrow and won’t be much help wrapping. So if you are in the area and have 15 or 20 min to spare, swing by Westside.
Hopefully in a couple of days we will be posting a pick of Kansas City’s Biggest “IT.”
