Lea Morgan's Bless-a-Child Campaign
A FUNDRAISER ON BEHALF OF BRIGHT BLESSINGS
Bright Blessings is an amazing organization that reaches out to those among us who find themselves homeless. What I love about this organization is that it is focused on recognizing the babies, children, and teenagers who are living in what can only be described as limbo...as a result the entire family is blessed. In this effort, Bright Blessings blesses babies and their families with Baskets of Hope filled with gifts of necessities and love; blesses children with birthday parties and books that otherwise may not have their special day recognized; and blesses these children and teenagers with gifts that provide for good health, nutrition, and hygiene. Bright Blessings is making an impact on our community and you and your children are encouraged to take an active role by giving your time, talents, and resources.
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.
