a giving heart.

there is something about the holiday season that really touches my heart.
it reminds me how deeply blessed i really am & how rich these blessings are.

bountiful. abundant. undeserving blessings surround my life daily.
& i will never completely understand why i am so blessed.
while i wish i had this overwhelming sentiment all year long.
i have to admit. it often times gets lost in the day-to-day.

that being said.
i am making this next month one of a giving heart.
giving of each & every part of my being.
heart. soul. energy. time. money. care. & prayers. 

after much thought.
i am choosing to bless the children's dream fund this year.
not only is this organization near & dear to my heart.
but my amazing mother is also a dream coordinator. 
so. i sincerely hope that you will join me in this great effort. 

the children's dream fund is a most wonderful local non-profit
that blesses terminally ill children with their biggest & wildest dreams.
i have had the joy of helping plan dreams & present dreams to these precious children 
& there is nothing sweeter or more humbling than bringing happiness to the lives of
these sick children & their loving families.
it is heartwarming. 

really. think about it.
if most of us made a list of our daily struggles
it would pale in comparison with the burden & fear that these families live with.
each & every day.

two years ago 
my small group bible study adopted a dream fund family for a christmas blessing.
the generous girls in my bible study collected tons of presents 
to surprise one sweet little two-year old girl.
i can only imagine the joy the mother experienced as she surprised her terribly sick little baby with more christmas presents than one could ever imagine. 

it was the simplest act of generosity that we could do....
but it will leave a lasting impression on this family as shortly after that happy morning 
this precious little one went on to be in Heaven with our Heavenly Father. 

so my friends.
i have a challenge for us. 
let's see how much money we can raise to support the 
many. many. many families within the children's dream fund. 
let's see how many gift cards we can collect to donate to the children's dream fund.
starting now. ending on december 15. any amount is wonderful.
visa cards. american express cards. target cards. wal-mart cards.

just think of all the families who will be deeply touched from your giving heart. 

if this is something you would like to participate in. {and it should be}
here is how you can make it happen.

first. go get your gift cards. {visa & american express are top choice}
second. mail your gift cards {or checks} to the following address:

Kim Brett
Children's Dream Fund 
1 Progress Plaza
Suite 820
Saint Petersburg, FL 33701

{if you are local. feel free to just drop the gift card off at my house}
