This is a wonderful cause. Erica Jones and Sunshine Spaces brighten the lives of families with children with cancer and devastating illnesses. I have volunteered with Sunshine Spaces for several years. It is amazing to see so many people come together to change the living spaces for these families in such a short period of time. The results are beautiful and meaningful. It is an honor to work with Sunshine Spaces.

Sunshine Spaces changed my life! I had been searching for a group to volunteer with for a long time. I needed a cause to believe in in my life, and I fell in love with what they do on the very first makeover. My heart was filled and I knew this was where I was supposed to be. Everybody was so welcoming and seeing what they do in action was inspiring! These kids and their families get to feel the love of their community and the child gets a room filled with joy and catered to their personality. The looks on their faces on reveal day is priceless!! I get as much joy out of it as the special children receiving these room transformations. Sunshine Spaces is hands down the greatest thing I have ever been a part of!

When I first heard about Sunshine Spaces I thought it was a prettt cool charity but when I stepped in to be a volunteer I learned what this organization is really about. The Bible tells us to love like Jesus, to give like Jesus, well Sunshine Spaces is doing just that. Erica and her team amaze me at every event and every build with their heart, their passion, their values and their dedication. They are not just building rooms they are building memories, connections, love, and happiness during a time of stress, heartbreak, and darkness these families are living with, they are bringing them Sunshine. I am blessed and honored to be a small part of this organization and I encourage you to step in and bring a little sunshine to someone.

When I became a business owner of a martial arts school, I was looking for a way to be a part of making the community better for everyone. I saw that Sunshine Spaces was looking for sponsors of their 2017 Enchanted Ball fundraiser. I was a bit skeptical at first so I went back through the history of Sunshine Spaces and I was blown away by the scope and scale of the projects they took on. I also noticed several members of my church volunteering for one of the projects and I was convinced Sunshine Spaces was the right place for us to sponsor!

It's amazing to see the love this organization shows for families needing a little light in the darkness. The amount of work they get accomplished on a very limited budget is testament to the commitment Erica and her team of volunteers have made to helping families.

Hello I’m Sandy Jones I have been a volunteer with Sunshine Spaces for the very first child that this organization ministered to. Her name was Briell. At that time there was no T-shirts , Banners not much publicity. Just the compassion and need in the our hearts to really bring Sunshine into the midst of a struggling family. It was like watching a beautiful story unfold. Watching strangers coming together for a child and family that need a break form this horrible cancer. Loving on the whole family and lifting them up. There has been many children since the first. But the goal is always the same for Sunshine Spaces . Loving on the children and their families. I am humbled to be a part of this . Sunshine Spaces has touched my heart.

There is nothing like it. Not too big where someone could get lost and not be hands on. Unique in the fact that familys can participate in working on projects no matter the ages. Erica Jones the founder is truly commuted to making a difference.

Sunshine Spaces, is one of those small specs in the world, making big changes. I like to believe, Erica lives the phrase, "Be the change, you want to see in the world". You don't have to be a big fancy organization, when you're impacting the lives of children. You just have to be a source of love and inspiration. Inspiration is exactly the word I use when I talk about Sunshine Spaces to others. I have personally watched this organization inspire an entire town, to rally around families of special children. Providing refreshing room make-overs, garnering prayers for the kids, when their journey needs help. They bring hope and happiness to these children, to give them the fight they need to endure their medical battles. It's a complete privilege, to witness first hand, how much one organization can improve the lives of so many, Just by having a love to "be the change, you want to see in the world".

Erica goes above and beyond to help others. She somehow manages to put together a team of volunteers to help build dream rooms for children and their families that are battleling a terrible illness.

Sunshine spaces has the absolute biggest heart!! They don’t cut corners!! It’s nothing but the best, most amazing absolutely dreamy dream rooms for the most precious children in the world!! Sunshine spaces brings smiles to sick and terminally ill children. They don’t just build a room and forget either. They bring them into their sunshine family and forever keep them in their hearts. I will always support them in any way I can! If you haven’t seen what they do check out their Facebook page. They are amazing!!! The whole team but especially the founder- Erica!

Sunshine spaces is an amazing endeavor that avails sick and wounded kids the opportunity and place to just be kids again. A lot of these kids are stuck in their rooms for days, weeks, sometimes even months at a time. In light of that fact, Sunshine Spaces dedicateds it's mission to making that room a safe and fun personal space of their very own so they can heal. It's truly been a heart changing privilege to serve God and these families by being a part of Sunshine Spaces. I've met so many wonderful kids and parents and families and I continue to be taken aback by the way just being involved in this organization enriches my life. There is simply no greater reward for me than the smiles of these children and the stories of their love for their new rooms. I truly believe that environment promotes healing. I am continually blessed by this organization and I encourage anyone who wants to help people and effect real a change in a community and a family's life, one room at a time, to please volunteer. And when you do, bring your kids along. We make a place for them to help too. I simply can't say enough about Sunshine Spaces:)

Worked on their last makeover project. This group is amazing, works super hard, uses every dollar to its fullest, works with community sponsors, families and volunteers. The families that benefit are so very grateful and the SMILES are worth it all.

Sunshine Spaces did a makeover for my granddaughter Brielle Perry who was going through difficult treatment for leukemia at the time. This group does an amazing job to transform a child's environment into a wonderland, including siblings. We have seen what miracles they can perform with other children who are suffering with various critical illnesses or disabilities. They have made a permanent place in these children's hearts and in our hearts. They are such wonderful loving people who bring sunshine back for these kids and their families.
