A FUNDRAISER ON BEHALF OF BRIGHT BLESSINGS
As a family, Greg and I have prided ourselves in teaching our children about giving back to others and our community. At a young age we find it is important for them to understand that we all come from different back grounds and that not everyone is blessed in the same way that they are. This year a door was opened and gave us an opportunity to be a part of an organization that gives back but also helps to make lives happier for so many.
Bright Blessings currently supports over 8,500 homeless and impoverished children through their four programs. And by the end of 2018, the number of children being served is on pace to grow to over 10,600 children. That is why Greg, Reagan, Brooklyn and I are asking you to consider supporting Bright Blessings this holiday season through our Bless-A-Child campaign. When you Bless-A-Child in need, you are giving them so many more opportunities to succeed. No gift is too small, so please consider supporting a child this holiday season! We as a family want to help bring blessings to the children being served by this amazing organization. If you have not heard about Bright Blessings, please take a few minutes to learn more and really understand why this organization is important to us, www.brightblessingsusa.org.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering joining us and supporting Bright Blessings through the Bless-A-Child program.
Greg, Crissy, Reagan and Brooklyn
About Bright Blessings
90% 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.
