Let's Give a Family in Need a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

The holiday season... it is the "most wonderful time of the year" afterall, isn't it?  For most it is. It's about beautiful lights and decorations, wonderful gifts wrapped in golden bows, and a time to celebrate the season with family.

But for some, it's one of the most difficult times of the year.  That's what we're here for, to help relieve some of the burden these families face.

We're excited to help one special family in particular.  We were introduced to an amazing lady who is doing everything she can to support not only her own children, but her grandchildren while their mother battles with an addiction. She stays strong as acts as if her health is not ailing her, even though she is struggling with the debilitating affects of MS. And while the kids are in school, she volunteers at the food bank and blesses the lives of everyone she meets.  She truly has a heart of gold.

Their needs are simple and we want to make sure that everything is delivered no later than this Saturday, December 21st so that she has enough time to get it all wrapped for Christmas.  Drop offs can take place at:

Santa's Sneaky Elves are at it AGAIN!!!!

Last year a darling little family in need got much more than they bargained for!  They were almost at the point where all hope was lost, when Santa's Elves got busy.  Not only did they get an amazing Christmas full of gifts wrapped in sparkling bows, but they got new furniture, a clean home, a fridge stuffed full of food, and a fun night out at the skating ring with messy pizza faces to top it all off.

Help us make this dream turn into another amazing family. This year it's Christine's turn. She has four kids and an amazing attitude full of love of life. Unfortunately she has lost everything including her job, her home, she is currently living in the YMCA with her kids, and has no idea how she is going to get through the next month. On top of that she is having a severe knee problem and has no insurance. Please help us help her and make a difference to a family in need.

The details:

Norman is 10. His favorite colors are orange and blue. He is your typical fun loving boy, loves video games and Legos, and he loves to read and draw.

Jordan is a beautiful 9 year old girl. Her favorite colors are pink and purple, and she loves Lolly Loops, dolls, and anything fluffy or girly.

Patrick is 19 and his favorite color is blue.  He desperately needs size 81/2 shoes and clothes for a job. He also loves Pokemon.
Keesha is 17 and loves pink and purple as well. She is also as girly as they come and she loves to keep diaries and make jewelry.

Christine has a heart of gold and would go hungry to provide for her kids. She desperately is actively seeking a job and anything would help!!!

More sizes and information is on its way! Gift cards, items, donations or anything else you can help with would be amazing.

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are also looking to add one more family so if anyone knows of a family in need please let us know. Xoxo!

Stockings, blankets, and treats!!! Oh my!!!

Here we are in November.  We're just two days away from Thanksgiving.  A day to be thankful for our blessings, our triumphs, and our families.  It has become far too easy to get so caught up in these blessings and too caught up in preparing for the holidays, that sometimes we tend to overlook the very things we should be paying the most attention to.

Unfortunately, many this year will not be celebrating their holidays in the warmth of theirs or their family's homes.  Many are struggling to even have the very basics.  Things that we often take for granted.  Toothbrushes, lotion, soaps, even card games. 

Join us December 2nd at 7pm to help the families at the YWCA shelter.  We will be stuffing stockings full of desperately needed items.  We will also be accepting blanket donations and coats to take there as well. 

Delicious cookies and varities of hot chocolate will be provided.  I'm sure some awesome entertainment will be thrown in as well!

If you cannot make it to the event, please donate items or money via the Paypal link. Even $1 helps!

When:  Monday, December 2nd
Time: 7:00pm
Location: 373 N 480 W American Fork

If you are not sure what items can be donated, please feel free to send me an email and I will get back with you asap!

Happy Giving!!!! Xoxo

Leah's Adoption Fund

After being adopted by a loving family Leah's biological father is trying to gain custody and take her from the only family she knows and loves. They are struggling financially and could use any help to keep her where she needs to be!

Christmas for the Dodd Family

I was truely touched by this story and knew I had to get invovled and help in anyway I could!
Dustin was diagnosed with brain cancer Glioblastoma (it is the most common most aggressive most lethal form of a brain cancer) The diagnosis took place Monday October 22, 2012. After receiving this devastating news Dustin was scheduled for surgery to remove the 6cm X 6cm mass the next day at the University of Utah. He has an amazing wife Aimee and 6 sweet kids, 3 girls and 3 boys ranging in ages from 4-9.
As of right now Dustin is still at the University of Utah hospital. Aimee is by his side at all times, when Dustin becomes alert he will reach for Aimee.
Finances are rough at this time Dustin has missed a lot of work prior to this diagnosis, he was very ill. Bills are quickly stacking up as well as shut off notices, the holidays are right around the corner and with 6 kids that is difficult without the added stress. Gas is expensive to and from the Hospital.

We have set up a charitable account for the Dodd Family at America First Credit Union. You can go to any of America First's Branches and donate to Dustin Dodd's charitable account. ANYTHING helps! Donations will continue to be accepted via Aimee's PayPal account,, for those of you that want to donate but are not near an America First.
Any and all donations would be greatly appreciated. Along with financial donations, their family could also use groceries for their home in Eagle Mountain, babysitting relief for Aimee's mom who is currently tending to the children, house cleaning, meals, etc.
We will also be providing a Christmas for this sweet family. If any of you would like to get invovled, donate money or items, I will be posting sizes and needs for each of the children. You can also donate on my blog!

Its that time again...

So excited to start this tradition once again! Last year was so successful that I got so enthralled in the experience and wasn't able to post all the great experiences you and I were apart of! I will make sure to share with you because they were very inspiring and I know it will motivate you to get involved this year if you haven't yet! 
We were able to help so many families and people; definitely a Christmas Miracle! I know those of you that were involved would agree.  I would LOVE to top that this year and make it even bigger!
If you have an idea for service, or know of a family or individual in need please contact me via facebook or email. I need your eyes and hear to be open to the many opportunities we have to serve. The Christmas season comes and goes so quickly. Its best to start early!
Please encourage others to read my blog and to get involved.
Spending my love and thanks in advance! I feel so blessed to be apart of this every year and hope that together we can brighten and bless so many lives!
