We Need Your Help!
Almost every year, for the past fourteen years, Coco, Early & Associates has hosted a holiday party for the children of the Merrimack Valley. Last year alone brought more than 700 hundred out to the celebration and what a time it was. Santa, the Grinch, sing alongs, a ten foot cake, refreshments and yes, hundreds and hundreds of gifts for every child present. Gifts ranged from coloring books, bicycles, x-box games and even an entire home computer setup!
This year we are proud to announce something a little different. “CANS for CARE” In light of these economic times, where the poor seem poorer, the homeless seek shelter more than ever, and donations for food, across the board, have all but dried up, we have decided to do somethiing about it. It is our goal to help 1,000 people in Southern New Hampshire and the Merrimack valley be afforded three square meals for the entire week of Chrstmas. We are pledging an all out effort to raise 20,000 cans of food to be delivered to the local soup kitchens and shelters within our markets. Our agents are stepping up relentlessly and I am asking for your help as well.
There are only 21 A number of fast-talking treatment facilities claim that they can “cure addiction” through a quick and easy Premium Detox 7 Day Comprehensive Cleansing Program process. days before Christmas itself, so you can see that there”s a lot of work to do. If you have spare cans hanging around the kitchen, one, two, three or even a case of cans of food from the local market, please be encouraged to drop them off at any one of our ten locations. This is an all out effort to help those families in real need, to make a difference, to fill the hearts and bellies of those children and adults displaced through these horrific times. As a little incentive, if you bring 100 cans or more, we will put you in a drawing to win 2 Incredible seats at a Red Sox game in 2012.
Here is a list of some of the items in need for the local soup kitchens:

Miracle at Coco, Early & Associates- Goosebumps for sure! In my most recent post, I mentioned, we have hosted an annual holiday party for the children in our communities, probably touching the hearts and families of more than 10,000 children in total. Well, this one special year brought certainty, magic and emotion to me and others close by, all in one full swoop.070-336 An event that had changed our perpsective on life, forever.brideswhisper Here’s the rest of the story: It was a crisp-cold, Saturday morning, where children and their parents stood lining the halls of Salem High School, in Salem, NH. Eager to claim their opportunity for that one special present they were about to receive. As the children checked in, they were given their one raffle ticket that dictated the present they’d receive.The excitement mounted as the clock ticked closer to noon. Then finally, the doors flew open and the masses pushed through like a Black Friday bargain at Walmart for a free flat screen television. They clamored for that one special seat, upfront, close to the action, close to the gifts. Our sales agents, eager and full of excitement as well, escorted them to their seats and ensured everyone cozied up to their closest neighbor as possible since we could only seat 700. Once everyone was seated the bell finally rang and Santa arrived as we played the “Here Comes Santa Claus” song. Invitng him to make his way to the children waving and bellowing, “Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas!” to everyone. The children roared in disbelief, “Is it him, is it really him?” Once Santa and the Grinch were no longer center stage, the true Christmas magic was about to be felt. The raffle of all those presents! Who would get what? Luck of the draw, some would say. Of course, the eyes were on the crown jewels; the computer, the x-box, the bicycles, the karoake machines… Our agents, standing in an organized line, would hold up the next gift to be raffled. The ticket was then pulled from the box of 700 or more. For example, the game of Monopoly would be held and a raffle ticket bearing a number would be pulled from the tin cannister. At that point, I would call out the number and the agent would run to their table hootin and yelling “you won, you won”! Sitting atop, this not so steady swaying ladder ten feet from the floor, I would echoe the winning number several times through a blow horn, into the crowd of eager children.642-832 Well, during the parade of maybe sixty to seventy presents already delivered, I noticed a young boy, maybe 5 or 6 years old, making his way towards me from the rear of the room. Amongst all the havoc, all the noise, I sensed a quieting calm, a directive, a notice of this little stranger depolyed to my ladder. Once he arrived, I leaned from the top stair of the ladder and said, “hello”. With a sincere confidence, he looked up, smiled and said in the softest voice, “that’s mine”, as he pointed to the next
present being held by the agent. It was a skateboard. Oh, I thought, how perfect for him, he was the right age, the right height and such an honest face. I started to feel bad, because I knew the chances of him getting that gift was 700 to 1. No problem I thought, I would run out and pick one up for him after the Christmas party. He stood there so patient, so expecting, waiting as the number was pulled from the cannister. I still remember the last three numbers, 333. I sadly called the number out to the crowd, hoping no one would claim the present, and in that moment, he raised his right hand, went into his left, coat-pocket trying to find his ticket. He then handed it to me. The number was 333! I fell from the last step, embraced this young boy and graciously walked him over to his dad with tears of emotion running from my face. How did he know, how did he know? I feel we were blessed that very moment, something or someone much greater than this world whispered with precision into this childs ear.brideswhisper.com He was all the proof I needed to know that miracles are real.
