Seasons Greetings from Us to You!
We look forward to the holidays for many reasons: a break from school, a few days off from work, our aunt's delicious baked macaroni, the beautiful city lights, and spending time with our loved ones if we are so fortunate.
While the holiday season is a festive time, for many children in foster care the music, decorations, and get-together’s may also serve as a reminder that they are not “home for the holidays.” They may not see their biological family members and they may also not receive any christmas gifts.
These are some of the reasons why The Felix Organization hosts special events throughout the holiday season to brighten the spirits of our youth. And because of this, hundreds of children in foster care have a reason to smile in December!
In 2016, The Felix Organization:
Distributed over $30,000 in Secret Santa gift cards to over 900 children.
Hosted 100 children for a Thanksgiving Feast-i-val at Hill Country Barbecue restaurant.
Sent 100 LA-based foster children to Camp Felix West for a holiday retreat in December.
Gave 100 children the magical experience of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.
We couldn't have done it without you!
We extend the biggest hugs on behalf of our children to anyone who has donated to our campaigns, attended our events, liked, commented on or shared a photo on social media. Every action is a small act that contributes to our greater mission.
The dedicated support from our friends and family is what allows us to make dreams come true every year for children in foster care. Please keep our children in your hearts as you celebrate with your loved ones this year. The smiles on their faces this year will ensure that they are thinking of us too.
As another magical year of Felix comes to an end, we send you our most sincere well wishes for 2017!
