At Enchanted Fairies sharing holiday magic isn’t just at Christmas time, but all year round for non-profit Kidd’s Kidds and when your family shares in the fun.
Thanks to Enchanted Fairies and Kidd’s Kidds for sharing this special experience with mamachallenge.com with this sponsored post.
I love the holidays for many reasons, but seeing the good in people like the Angel Tree, hearing stories of paying off layaways or giving anonymously to organizations in need, always warms my heart and brings tears to my eyes. So when Kidd’s Kidds invited to me to go behind-the-scenes to see how one of their biggest donors, Enchanted Fairies, goes beyond Christmas time to give and create once-in-a-lifetime experiences for kids with life-altering/life-threatening conditions, I was there with bells on (and so were the kids!)
I actually had been to Enchanted Fairies when my daughter was younger to have her own Enchanted Fairies portraits done for grandma. So I *thought* I knew what to expect when I was invited to share in a special experience at Enchanted Fairies with two special children from Kidd’s Kidds – Avery (age 9) and Mason (age 7).
Both of these beautiful children (and Mason’s sister) had just a few months ago, had traveled with Kidd’s Kidds trip to Walt Disney World (also funded through donations from Enchanted Fairies) and on this special day would be transported – to a beautiful storybook experience captured forever with a picture!
Watching them be kids and in the middle of the moment – with all the efforts focused on them – was truly magical for me. Especially at the holidays, when often the real purpose of the season…giving and living life the most and the best that you can, isn’t always what is celebrated. But today it was — and at Enchanted Fairies, whether you have are a 9-year old, a little girl with a Brain Tumor and Posterior Fosse Syndrome or a 7-year old with Nephrotic Syndrome, you can feel like you are the center of the universe.
As of today through their tireless efforts, Enchanted Fairies has:
- Raised $ 600, 319.14
- Photographed 19, 562 families
- Fed 403 ,137 people
The photo session in itself is much more than getting the perfect shot. Daniel, the owner, really knows how to allow kids to be themselves and capturing the heart and minds of children. The “oh my” opportunities with special props and little “tricks” allows children to relax and let go, so every picture taken comes out as your favorite. Trying to narrow down your favorites is nearly impossible as each look, expression, and interaction really makes the experience as memorable for you as it is for them.
My daughter is definitely going to love her holiday treat when I bring her back for her grand treatment fulfilling her dream as a mermaid! And if you act fast, there are a few appointments left for the Christmas session.
