I looked into this and it seems it's straight-up for real. I thought people here might want to participate in raising some truly deserving and inspiring spirits, whatever your holiday preferences.

Thanks for the update. So often we see the request but nothing about the appreciation the recipient feels for the outpouring of good wishes!
