Karen's Bless-a-Child Campaign
A FUNDRAISER ON BEHALF OF BRIGHT BLESSINGS
The act of being able to give joy, care and hope to another person is amazingly powerful. After all, don’t we strive to accomplish this daily for our children, family and friends? Isn’t this something we strive to achieve for our self each day too? The mission of Bright Blessings is to do just that for homeless and impoverished children in our community.
This organization is near and dear to my heart. What started out as a volunteer opportunity me for me 6 years ago has turned into the place I am privileged to work each day. I am so blessed to see the impact that Bright Blessings has on those we serve, and I am a witness to so many amazing dedicated volunteers from our community.
I am reaching out to you to see if you would consider donating to Bright Blessings. We are making spirits bright this holiday season and the whole year through. Please join us help to give joy, care and hope to others.
With Blessings & Thanks,
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.
