Charity

I do a LOT of charity work. I’ve been blessed with three healthy kids, a wonderful husband, and a job that I love. Why shouldn’t I give back to others in need.

I raise funds through a variety of ways:
+ personal fundraising with my friends and family
+ sales through my business,Brianne’s Basics
+ sales through my second business, being a Doodlekins Diva

I sell handmade crafts and destash craft supplies. I donate 100% of our sales to various charities and events, both local and national.

In 2010 alone, we have donated over $2000 to many organizations and events:
Adopt A US Soldier ~ Bears On Patrol and Miles The Bear ~ Broken Loaf Food Pantry ~ Chemo Angels ~ CHOC Walk In The Park ~ Friends Like Us ~ Great American 4th Of July Bike Parade ~ Inspired Grace ~ Kids Korner @ LB Sunday Market ~ Layers Of Love ~ LB Depot For Creative Reuse ~ Love In The Mirror ~ March On Alzheimer’s ~ NOH8 Campaign ~ Operation Easter Basket ~ Operation Gratitude ~ Relay For Life Lakewood ~ Relay For Life Long Beach ~ Ride For Kids ~ Ronald McDonald House Walk For Kids ~ Soldier’s Angels

My son, Michael, has made me proud. He formed a team for CHOC Walk In The Park, called Mikk’s Kid Krusaders. We’ve also adopted a soldier from Soldier’s Angels

Some of my other accomplishments:
+ Kids Are Heroes Ambassador
+ Friends Like Us HUGS Program Rep
+ Bears On Patrol Supporter
+ It All TABS Up Southern California Team Leader
+ started Kids Craft and Charity Corner at the LB Sunday Market
+ launching Friends Like Us HUGS Program in LB with LB Creative and the LB Depot For Creative Reuse

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
I do so much volunteering, and I’m always looking for assistance. So how can you help us continue doing what we do?

The biggest thing you can do is purchase from our Etsy store. We use 100% of our profits to purchase donation items.

Here are items you can donate:
* coupons for Joann’s, Michael’s, etc.
* craft supplies for the Friends Like Us HUGS Program
* collect your pop tabs for the Southern California It All TABS Up Program
* troop support items for our Operation Gratitude Drive
* ship teddy bears (must be new, must be 6 to 15 inches). Bears may be shipped to: Bears on Patrol ~ 566 Preston Place Court ~ Carrollton, GA 30117
