Hi, My name is Amy….
Our nonprofit, Superheroes Believe in Miracles (501c3), specializes in caring for all children battling chronic or serious illnesses, which include mental illnesses. Our mission is to make these kids feel like the superheroes we know them to be. Each year we do plenty of fundraisers and events, as well as send out birthday packages to kids.
To date over 9,000 packages have been sent out from our organization, filled with age appropriate goodies that pertain to that child’s interests. We send out approximately 180 packages per month, to kids ages 0-19, which gives them one more super thing to smile about.
We also go to outside fundraisers and events to help other organizations serve children battling these illnesses. In the past, we have set up superhero photoshoots, with props and accessories for the kids to choose from. We then take their picture in their superhero attire. We love what we do, and there is nothing in this world more rewarding than the pictures of these smiling heroes.
If you know of a child that has a medical or mental condition that would like a mask, feel free to visit our website and sign up to be a part of our hero-squad. Alternatively, you can reach out to us on social media or email us directly.
So what made me start this?
Thank God, my children are currently all healthy and I do not have a child with cancer or other serious illness. I did have a child that was born premature and was in the hospital for almost 4 months. It was the worst time of our lives watching him teeter on the fine line of life and death. I had the support of my family but it was a hard, hard and very lonely time. I wish I would have had reached out and asked for support via the internet but I didn’t want to burden anyone with my problems. I would have loved to get something like this for my little superhero. I feel like the kids that are old enough to understand love getting the mask or tiara and card and it makes them smile. A smile in the face of what they are going thru is so important to them and their family. I just want to make them smile!
We currently send out approximately 180+ birthday packages each month to kids that live in the United States. To date we have sent well over 8000 birthday packages since our inception. We LOVE what we do and the pictures of kids smiling is the most rewarding thing in the world.
