I would love to introduce you all to Ember and her mom Jessie. When the floods hit Houston and Ember heard about it, she wanted to do her own fundraiser for a specific family her mom helped her choose.
Ember is Charli and Corbin’s cousin and Jessie is their aunt. She also teaches and runs her own ballet studio,( Ascend Studios) which is where we went for the event. Ember is 7 like Charli.
For weeks this little girl worked on making tiny wreaths, Christmas ornaments and other crafts. There was also a table with craft supplies for kids to make and take something. Auntie Jessie had made hundreds of butter cookies to sell by order. I bought 6 dozen!
So today Jessie said they raised around $300! And this was just a private FB pop up event. As Jessie said, ” Can you imagine this time of year and Christmas with just nothing?”
I absolutely love the fact of helping others on a personal level instead of writing a check and not knowing where it goes. And I am privileged to know these two. Ember is always full of great ideas and Jessie is great at executing those ideas and supporting her daughter 100%. They aren’t simply good at talking their faith, they live it. They put faith into action and those actions change people’s lives.
And from what I hear some of the kids thought it was such a great idea they want to do it also. Great kids!
