Joy For Joplin

Joy for Joplin
Ornament Donation Project

A devastating tornado recently struck Joplin, Mo. Five Keepsake ornament collectors from the Bright Christmas Dreamers Local Club in Joplin are storm victims along with hundreds of others.

Keepsake Collectors on the YuleLog internet bulletin board suggested collecting ornaments for these victims at the upcoming Aug 5-6 "Keepsake Class Reunion Event" in Kansas City.
This project is truly a Keepsake collector initiative arising from the hearts of individuals who would like to share their ornaments with those that in an instant suffered great loss.

*If you would like to participate, place your ornament donation in the collection boxes located in the Secondary Marketplace (Pershing Hall - Hyatt Hotel lobby level) on Fri & Sat 9-5.

*A giant "Joy for Joplin" card will be near the donation boxes. All collectors are invited to sign this card.

*The giant card and donated ornaments will go to Amanda's Hallmark in Joplin. Amanda's currently has signs in the store asking tornado victims interested in ornaments to contact them. The information collected will be used to get the ornaments to those victims that will enjoy & appreciate them.

*The Bright Christmas Dreamers Club will sort and distribute all donations.

*If you prefer to mail your donation directly to Joplin at a later time or have questions regarding this project, email

*This is not a Hallmark Company Project,however Hallmark is supportive and will be making a donation.
Sharing our Keepsakes with tornado victims will provide "Joy for Joplin" during the upcoming Holiday Season!
