2012 was such a big year for us and we are so pleased to be able to share some of the highlights that happened over the course of last year.
January, we added a new elementary school, Bonner Springs Elementary. They have a total of 435 children in that school, and we were pleased to be able to help the children that we were able to help.
March, we added two schools to our organization. Bethel Elementary School has a little over 200 children who attend that school. We also added Wyandotte County Head Start who gave us an additional 30 children, all of which we are helping.
April, we celebrated one year of when this vision came to be. At the time, it was amazing just how far we had come in just that year’s time.
June celebrated our one year milestone of helping our first birthday blessing. What an amazing first year we we had!
September was huge for us. We had a lot of sibling birthday’s who we were able to help celebrate together, and we had two sets of twin! Also in September, Fox 4 Morning Show interviewed us to help us spread the word. This was the first formal interview we have done since we first got started. With that show, we brought in more volunteers, and more children to help.
October we formed a partnership with St Mary’s University and their service learning project. We are proud to be able to help a handful of students do their part in the community by helping others. October was also the largest amount of children we have helped to date. That month, we helped 24 kids alone!
2012 was an amazing year for us. We served 143 children. That is 143 children who we were able to help make memories for, and 143 smiles that we were able to bring to their sweet little faces.
Thank you to all who have helped us, who continue to help us, and to those who support us in any way that they can.
