Supporting Hannah's Legacy of Compassion
A FUNDRAISER ON BEHALF OF BRIGHT BLESSINGS
I've been so completely overwhelmed with so much kind and loving support my entire life. My parents and family members have been so very supportive of my journey since before I even entered this world and have continued their support even until today and beyond. My passion for giving back and working with children came from all the joy, care and love I have received during my lifetime. Anyone that knows me knows I aim to return that same love and compassion to the world around me, especially to children. Not all children are so fortunate to receive the basic necessities and joy in life that I have received during my journey. Which is why I'm asking my family and friends to continue their support of me so that I may contribute, with your help, to an amazing organization that does just that for other children less fortunate.
Bright Blessings provides Joy, Care and Hope to over 11,000 homeless and impoverished children in Charlotte every year. Starting at just $10, I'm asking my friends and family to donate to Bright Blessings to help me carry on a legacy of care and compassion, which has been nurtured by so many of my loved ones. In lieu of holiday gifts to me this year, please consider donating to Bright Blessings instead. That's worth more to me than any gift I would receive.
Thank You and Much Love,
xoxo ~ Hannah
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.
