Wow! It's been months since we sat over a phone call brainstorming the ways we could give back to our community. At the time, we came up with the idea of giving Christmas gifts to a few kids locally. We set our goal at 35, which even seemed a bit ambitious to us. As we write this now, we are left shocked by the actual results: an official website and social media pages, a rented 'Make a Kid Merry' storage unit and van, local and national news coverage, participation from schools, clubs, and nearly one hundred donors, and most importantly; 50 young children impacted and blessed with intentional gifts they may not have received otherwise.
While we do see this as a testament to our hard work and ability to carry out a vision, we know that the core of this organization is every individual reading this now. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank everyone who donated, shared a post, helped us shop for, wrap, and deliver gifts, sent us resources/educational pieces, prayed over our organization, and contributed in many other ways. YOU ALL are the heart of our nonprofit and we could not be more grateful.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, for an amazing first year! Please use this page to reflect on our first Christmas and stay tuned for upcoming events.
We were blessed to be featured in many wonderful articles this season. Take a look at them below!
