ALEXANDRA CHILES FOUNDATION

Two of my girls are part of the Stanford Hills National Charity League. We have helped organization get togethers with friends to assemble bead kits for the foundation. Mrs. Chiles is incredibly organized so that we cannot help but produce a kit which a child receives while she/he is receiving her/his treatment and find it rewarding. Each kit is beautiful packaged, labeled and ALWAYS holds everything required to produce a keychains, bracelets, necklaces or lanyard.
