Tisha Margraves' Bless A Child Campaign
A FUNDRAISER ON BEHALF OF BRIGHT BLESSINGS
Bright Blessings has been a passion of mine since first volunteering in 2010. It is amazing to work for this non-profit that serves homeless and impoverished children in my area. To see children who are 8, 10, 16 and getting to have a birthday celebration for the first time in their lives is amazing. Everyone deserves to be recognized and celebrated on their special day. I love that we are also able to provide basic needs like hygiene kits, snack kits, school supply kits and also provide new books to these children to improve literacy. Would you join me in donating to Bright Blessings to provide more joy, care and hope to these amazing children?
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.
