Zelch Family Bright Blessings Fundraiser
A FUNDRAISER ON BEHALF OF BRIGHT BLESSINGS
If you know our family well, you know that we are very proud to represent Bright Blessings. This organization does so much for the children and families in our local community. The founders and board members are very passionate about making a difference in the lives of others - both those that are in need and also those that want to find a cause that their entire family can be a part of.
Our family has had the chance to serve this organization in the past. We have seen the unbelievable impact this outreach has had on the youth in Charlotte and surrounding areas. In addition, our children, Wilson and Macy, have benefited by understanding the act of selflessness by giving back to the community and helping us collect money and toys at our annual Christmas party.
We would be very humbled and grateful if you would join us in helping others this holiday season. Thank you so much!

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.
