I have been involved with the Foundation from it's inception, as I am a personal friend of the family, and knew Alexandra since she was a baby. I have been involved as a financial supporter, a fundraiser and a committee member as we organized a successful first annual Garden Party fundraiser here in our home town of Atherton. I believe in the Mission of the foundation, and want to carry on the spirit of service that defined Alexandra as a loving and caring person wanting to help other children who face serious illness. The founder, Anita Chiles and her husband work tirelessly to reach out to youth groups fostering community service by building the Craft Kits for so many children in pediatric and adolescent hospital care. Anita Chiles its an amazing woman who has soldiered this effort for many years, promoting awareness to high school and youth charity groups about how they too can become involved, working as an example to young people. She is an inspiration increasing awareness of life threatening disease in children and teenagers and has carried her daughter's legacy selflessly to others in our community doing by proving that one person CAN make a difference! I have enjoyed assisting Anita in her fundraising efforts, spreading awareness in the community and helping further Alexandra's dream of helping children through creative means.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The number of high school and service groups have benefited by this program, serving other children through creative means, assembling craft kits for the hospitals in our metropolitan area. Through this process, the kids learn about children( like themselves )facing serious and life threatening illness. They get to see how their efforts impact the lives of these children and at the same time learn the blessing of service to others.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have a larger volunteer base. Have a larger Executive Committee. More marketing and public relations. Increased funding base. Create a viable 5 year financial and project/service plan for the organization.
