Mission: Butterfly Kisses is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Charlotte, NC, with the mission of lifting the spirits of terminally ill children and their families through the delivery of care baskets. Butterfly Kisses aims to establish a personal relationship with the families they serve - both locally and throughout the country. Butterfly Kisses distinguishes itself from other organizations by recognizing that a terminal illness, such as pediatric cancer, not only affects the diagnosed child but also the family, siblings, and friends of the child. For this reason, Butterfly Kisses not only focuses on the child, but on the entire family and support unit.
Results: From establishment in August of 2010, we have shipped over twenty care packages and delivered many care baskets in NC.
Target demographics: terminally ill children in the United States between 0 - 18 years old
I have seen first hand the joy that Butterfly Kisses brings to children and their families. They personally deliver their baskets, whenever possible, taking time to visit with the families. The families are so appreciative of not only the gifts they receive but the personal visit and time spent with them. These teenage girls are doing a wonderful job of spreading joy among families that need a bright spot in their day.
