A few clicks can make a child's wish come true

Lord Martine
Friday, December 20, 2002

All I want for Christmas is . . .

. . . MyTwoFrontTeeth.org is a San Francisco nonprofit organization dedicated to sprinkling holiday glee to hundreds of disadvantaged children by using technology to fulfill their gift wishes with efficiency and individuality.

Gift-givers browse the children's profiles at http://www.mytwofrontteeth.org/, and sponsor a child (or more) by following the checkout steps. The toys are processed through a distributor and shipped to the community groups, where they are wrapped and given to the children.

MyTwoFrontTeeth.org CEO Josh McFarland, who started the site, said: "Our system provides benefits to all involved. The child will receive the exact toy they chose instead of a randomly distributed charity gift; the sponsor is provided a far more simple, efficient and personalized gift-giving process; and the community organization is provided both a turnkey solution to drive online sponsorships."


TICK TOCK: More than 150,000 people in San Francisco live with the threat of hunger. This year, give of your time. Help the San Francisco Food Bank ensure that all families in our community have enough to eat at their holiday celebrations.

The Food Bank, the largest distributor of food to nonprofit agencies in San Francisco, needs your help distributing 9,000 food boxes to needy families throughout the holidays.

Volunteers are most needed during the daytime, Monday through Friday. Additional opportunities are available in the evenings and on weekends. The Food Bank's Potrero Hill warehouse also needs volunteers for sorting and shelving food and labeling cans. Contact Lisa Start in volunteer services: (415) 282-1900 or visit http://www.sffoodbank.org/.


WRAP IT UP: The Girl Scouts of the San Francisco Bay Area have partnered with One Warm Coat, a community service organization, to collect new or gently used coats and distribute them, free of charge, to children and adults in need.

They've made donating a coat way simple. Just bring a clean, reusable coat to Stonestown from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturdays through Jan. 6. The Girl Scouts will take care of the rest.

Their goal is to collect 2,000 coats. Coats of all sizes are welcome, but children's coats are most needed.

Drop them off at the Community Service Booth across from Ann Taylor at Stonestown, 19th Avenue and Winston Drive. Visit http://www.shopstonestown.com/.
