Gellete dreams big: get this girl some Ugg boots!

Get ready to tear up. Brooklyn’s Catholic Charities is collecting Christmas gifts for school kids in Red Hook affected by Hurricane Sandy. Here are some of the letters from 13 children. They’re asking for things like some kids are asking for Uggs and Hello Kitty merch, but some are asking for skinny jeans and paint sets, so we have some future Williamsburg residents in the mix obviously.

If you’d like to help out this holiday season, info is after the jump.
