A FUNDRAISER BY OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS
FOR THE SUMMER OF CARING 2018!
Bright Blessings has allowed each of us, along with our families, the opportunity to serve the homeless and impoverished children living in our community through the gifts of joy, care, and hope. This is a wonderful organization that helps brighten the lives of needy children, while also helping us instill a love and compassion for community in our own children. With each of us having been involved with this organization in various ways, we have each had the pleasure of personally witnessing the smiles and heartfelt joy of the children on the receiving end of Bright Blessings' programs. This year, we are working as a team to help raise funds in support of their effort to extend their services to more than 10,000 children in 2018. We are grateful for any and all contributions, no matter the size, and hope that everyone has a very safe and wonderful summer.
Thank You for Your Support in This Summer of Caring,
Tony, John, Joclyn, Kay, Russell, Sarah, Dave, and David
About Bright Blessings
88% of every dollar goes directly into Bright Blessings' programs. Thanks to the generosity and caring of our volunteers and donors just like you, we will help provide joy, care, and hope to more than 10,000 homeless and impoverished children this year.
Bright Blessings first began in 2005 as a monthly birthday program for children staying at the Salvation Army Center of Hope in Charlotte, North Carolina. The organization's founders, John and Amy Cervantes, wanted to help brighten the lives of needy children while also instilling a love and commitment for community service in their own young children. For nearly three years, the Cervantes family threw birthday celebrations every month for hundreds of homeless children at the Center, adding educational and enrichment activities to their program and also providing the kids with gifts, new books and basic care essentials.
In March of 2008, the family decided to incorporate their program as a not-for-profit charity with a twofold mission of engaging volunteers of all ages to help brighten the lives of needy children across the greater Charlotte metro area. Today, Bright Blessings remains a volunteer-led organization that will impact more than 10,000 homeless and impoverished children this year through its core programs, Bless-A-Birthday, Bless-A-Baby, Gift of Literacy and Gift of Care.
