Raising two grandchildren & those happy little faces when they got to pick out a toy for Christmas...heartwarming ....I saw the same happy little faces all around me that day so they made a difference in so many children's life with that act of kindness,also the parents were visibly happy to watch their children receive gifts.

Watching him transform right before my eyes over the years has brought great joy as his pastor. To see him endlessly gives his time and self is remarkable. His ability to tap into the heart of the community and go about to make a change, shows his true character. He continues to be a blessing to the ministry and his community. Godspeed Andrew!

Very helpful. I was able to give my five children a wonderful Christmas. Without the support of Giggles & Coos, this may not have been possible. The founder Andrew has also been a great support spirituality and emotionally.
