I am posting in hopes someone can help me find a poem about christmas stockings and putting a dime in the toe of the churches stocking. It talks about how each month you add another dime. Thats about all I remember. I do know that when I orignally found it, it was on a little piece of paper and in a small stocking. If you can help I would be so appreciative:)

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but I found this on google.

This is an idea for January or February meetings. Use any small stocking.
From St. Paul Ladies Auxiliary, Sheboygan Falls.

Though Christmas is far off,
We know it won’t be shocking
To put a dime into the toe
Of Your LWML Christmas Stocking.
Since February’s the second month,
You’ll put in two you see,
And when March comes along,
It will call for three.
With April over, you will have
Four more dimes than before.
Next comes the pleasant month of May
When you will add five more.
Six dimes in June, seven in July,
See how your gift is growing?
In August there will be eight more
Into the stocking going.
September nine, October ten,
Eleven in November,
December calls for twelve,
Surely you will remember.
Your Christmas stocking now is full
With seventy eight dimes in all-
Or if you put a few more in,
We won’t mind at all.
Now bring your Christmas stocking,
Be sure you don’t forget,
To your regular LWML Christmas party
And make it your best one yet.
