The Palins say thank you
Generous Elizabeth, a member of a certain Team connected to our Sarah, was over the moon upon receiving a thank you card from Bristol after sending a couple of gifts for Trig and Piper.
I just received a card from Bristol :)
I think it was sweet of her to send this!
Further down in the thread, replying to envious comments, such as :
Another card from the Palins? LOL, Good on you girl. Are you collecting Palin Cards or something? :)
Generous Elizabeth waxed lyric:
Hehe, I only have 2 right now. I just love sending them stuff and showing my support, and they are just so sweet enough to send out replies! :)
To which another fan commented:
They are so lucky to have such a special friend like you Elizabeth! Perhaps they'll put you on their Christmas card list? Now wouldn't that be something?
Do you have an address where we can all send gifts?
And aww Kathleen, that means the world to me for you to call me their friend! Here's where I sent the presents for Trig and Piper :) It's their home address
Wasilla, AK 99654
Now we know why Bristol doesn't find the time to go to school! She's too busy writing thank you cards to all those generous donors.
All these cards and postage must cost a fortune. (Start a Gift Fund Trust?) According to Chuck Heath, Sarah's dad, there were more than 100,000 gifts piling up at the Palins.
Sarah Palin's father, Chuck Heath, says that the presents have literally been piling up.
To the tune of one hundred thousand.
In an interview with Grandparents.com, Mr. Heath remarked,
"There's all kinds of gifts laying around the place - all kinds of baby stuff. I'm in a room right now just full of baby stuff - more than she'll ever use."
I think it's very sweet that people are so generous and send gifts to the Palin children. To be fair, Sarah Palin can't control that any more than she can stop lovely toy wolves and adoption certificates arriving at her home.
But considering that the Palins are not paupers and don't need the gifts, I'm sure they could find needy families, children's wings in Alaskan hospitals, daycare centres, etc, that could put this mountain of baby stuff to good use.
Such a gesture would make the Palins look good for a change. They're not often associated with giving...
I don't think these gifts have to be declared as they fall under a certain value, but 100,000? Do they received cash gifts as well as sock puppets, by any chance?
