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. Superheroes Believe in Miracles has a mission to empower children facing an illness, disability or limitation to realize the superhero he/she has inside. Each year we do plenty of fundraisers and events, as well as send out birthday packages to kids.
To date over 15,000 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 1-19 all across the continental US.
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 and be on our birthday package list, 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?
When my littlest, Anderson, was born he had some medical issues and was in the hospital for about 4 months. It was a difficult time and there were many instances in which we were not sure our little guy would make it BUT he did and you would never know today he was ever sick (thank the good Lord above).. During our stay there, I saw so many kids that were battling some of the biggest battles. Battles I wasn’t sure I could battle. Yet, day after day I saw them going up and down the hallways. Playing, smiling, joking around. Wow, I was amazed at their resilience and their zest for life. After I was home and Anderson was all healed I could not forget those kids. They moved me. My husband is a HUGE superhero fan and I remember talking to him one day about these amazing….superheroes. That is what they are- real-life superheroes. And then Superheroes Believe in Miracles was born. That was in 2013!!
