Happy Birthday Armando!

Happy Birthday Armando! In January, Melanie’s dear friend Armando hosted a birthday fundraiser to support Princess Alli Foundation and three other nonprofits benefitting children with craniofacial defects.  Armando’s fundraiser was a huge success – he raised $560!! We wanted to do something special with our portion of the funds he raised, so we are sending 60 of our toiletry care packages to families currently at Medical City Children’s Hospital, where Armando received treatment for Treacher Collins Syndrome as a child. We are so excited to send these boxes out!  Not only are they our first two TEXAS boxes, but they are our first two OUT OF STATE boxes! THANK YOU […]
