As Karen's big 4-0 approaches what were your thoughts on gifts? I know Karen would have loved to have gone home to the UK for Christmas last year, but due to finances could not go. I know she is thinking of it this year and/ or a much needed holiday as she is always telling us. So I thought it would be a good idea to get some funds together for her (as a surprise) to either put towards a ticket home at the end of the year or towards a holiday somewhere during the course of the year. My donation wouldn't go a long way alone, so I thought if we all contributed together, it would make a much bigger difference. Anyone who donates will be named on a big birthday card and I know she would so appreciate the thoughtful gift. ALL donations of course go to Karen.
