Miracles for Kids ~ What Christmas is Really About

If you’ve been following my blog, then you know that I’m a huge fan of giving back to the community and those in need! Most recently, I donated to the The Little Red Dog, to get a sweet puppy the things he needed, like ~ food, meds, and special training ~ so he could be adopted quickly.


And this year, for Christmas, I’m partnering with Miracles for Kids, an amazing organization whose sole mission is to improve the lives of children and families in need, specifically families with critically ill children. I learned that in many cases, one parent is forced to quit their job to care for their sick child, causing a lot of financial hardship. And even if just one child is sick, the entire family is effected mentally, emotionally and restricted from what they would normally be able to do if the disease didn’t plague their sibling.

The reason why I’m sharing this is not to be a grinch, but rather to spotlight this amazing organization who continues to provide hope and help to these local families experiencing crises.

do what matters

I’m a huge believer in doing what matters. I’m not saying we all need to give financially, but even volunteering our time can mean the world to someone. ♥

That’s why myself and some friends partnered together to buy special gifts for some of these amazing kids. We wanted their Christmas to be extra special this year.




Seeing how my support has been able to light up some very adorable faces is truly the icing on my Christmas cake this year. If you’re interested in getting involved with Miracles for kids, please email me!

Even if you’re unable to donate financially, there are lots of other lovely ways you can give.
