It was a daunting task.
Each year since we were founded Shine has tried to help put a smile on the face of a child who's mom or dad happens to be deployed during the holidays.
Our first year we helped about a dozen kids, year two about 50, year three 75, last year just short of 100. This year I anticipated maybe 110 kids.
My jaw dropped when the different branches of our deployed military gave us a count of about 500.
I had no idea how we were going to pull this off. Well there really is a Santa.
We had some money in the bank, we got some monetary donations, we had special people to help and we got HELP of Southern Nevada accept us as one of their charities this year.
With all of these players we hit our mark 😊
Here are some pictures we thought you might enjoy.
There is no better place to live in the world than right here in the U.S.
Merry Christmas!

Helping Those In Need2012 has been an interesting year.  So far this year, our focus has been to partner with other non profits. To date, we have managed to purchase some beds for some formerly homeless vets who now have apartments.  We’ve also succeeded in getting water and juice donations to help those who can’t go out and have daily or weekly deliveries.  Living in the desert, the food and juice donations are more than welcome and we’ve been lucky enough to get pallets full of both thanks to Las Vegas Dream Center.Read MoreChristmas Around The World
