Dear Loyal Be An Angel Friends,
Can you believe that 30 years ago email, FaceBook, Twitter or any type of social media did not exist? Gas was $.89 a gallon and the average car was under $10,000. Much has changed since Be An Angel was founded in 1986, but one thing remains, which is the constant overwhelming needs of the medically fragile and/or profound deaf children we serve.
With my favorite time of the year approaching, Thanksgiving and Christmas, it is my honor to once again spearhead Be An Angel’s Christmas Gift Giving Program, that will not only bring smiles and joy to over 5,000 special needs children during the holidays but will also provide so much more throughout their year-round programs as well.
Life comes at us hard sometimes and throws us curves we do not expect. The needs of our special needs children and their families that Be An Angel serves, often have no other place to turn for help except our charitable foundation. Most especially due to recent catastrophic events, we anticipate an extremely challenging year ahead. The critical needs of the children we serve continue to be our priority in light of the legitimate, immediate needs of so many around us. Yet, our children still need help, and the families who care for them are still stretched beyond their limit, still exhausted and still depending on us for that lifeline.
I am asking you to join my family in helping these precious children and ask that you sponsor a child for $50; any amount that you are able to give is greatly needed and appreciated. We are offering our Limited Edition Be An Angel 2017 bear with your contribution of $100 and with your donation of $200 or more, we will add a 12-pack of Be An Angel artwork notecards designed by our children.
I hope you find it in your heart to help us help the children this year and make a difference. The Lord will honor and multiply even your smallest efforts as your influence continues for generations to come. Thank you for considering our “angels” as beneficiaries of your generosity as we enter our 31st year of service. May God bless you and your family this holiday season and throughout the coming New Year. On behalf of the children, I thank you.
With a Grateful Heart,
Be An Angel Board Member Emeritus
