Kindness Challenge: February 2017

**Kindness Challenge: February 2017**

Art cardsAs you know, each month we will post a new Kindness Challenge for you and your family to participate in. Last month we encouraged you to let someone else go in front of you in line (Costco, post office, coffee shop etc). Many of you shared with us that it was a simple thing to do, and it not only made your hearts feel full, but it brought smiles to the people receiving the kindness.

For the month of FEBRUARY, we challenge you to: send a handwritten note to a friend or family member telling them why they are special to you. This is a simple and rewarding challenge that kids love to participate in too!

Kindness Challenge: January 2017 Art cards

Each month we will post a new Kindness Challenge for you and your family to participate in. Remember last month when we challenged you to do something nice for Jon at the UPS store (or someone in the service industry who you interact with)? Well, for the month of January, we challenge you to: Let someone else go in front of you at the grocery store, coffee shop, (gasp) Costco or even the post office!

The only catch is that we want to hear from YOU. Report back and let us know what you did and the impact it had on you, your family, or the person you were kind to. You can post on our page, private message us, or email us: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and let us know how it went. You can also share this post and encourage others to participate!

Legacy Marketplace

on Tuesday, 06 September 2016. Posted in AWF Blog

If you haven't heard, we are adding a new program to Hope Day. "Legacy Marketplace" is where 12 young people were chosen to budget, create and sell a unique item at our 2016 Hope Day. A portion of their profits (the kids decide how much) go back to AWF and helping others. We will be highlighting each one of them leading up to our event on October 8th. 

First up is Gavin!!!

Reflecting back with a grace-filled heart

on Wednesday, 31 December 2014. Posted in AWF Blog

End of year post-3


I have a habit of looking back and thinking about all of the things I didn’t do, or that I could’ve done better. In 2014, I made it my goal to learn to extend grace to myself….the kind of grace that I extend to others but rarely give myself. Looking back on 2014, I can see how Angel Wings Foundation has grown tremendously! We have a team of eight amazing individuals, a growing pool of supporters, and our Legacy project served over 250 people which resulted in 400 Hope Bags made by families and given to the homeless in WA State. We helped The Forgotten Project complete their first year of giving and loved working with our Youth Advisory Committee through our Legacy Program. A huge labor of love that has finally come to reality is receiving our official trademark for our logo! We were able to put a brand new roof on a young families home (thanks to Zetterberg Homes and Legends Roofing), providing them with peace of mind and health. Some days are harder than others….watching a family say goodbye to someone way to soon is gut-wrenching, but knowing that Angel Wings can help their legacy live on forever, well, that brings tremendous hope. Together, we made a difference in so many lives, through random acts of kindness, financial support, and Christmas surprises for those who aren’t expecting it. Looking ahead in to 2015, I am excited to see all of the tremendous growth that awaits us. I am not supposed to share our “top secret” plans with you, but I figure you won’t tell anyone. Plans include: website re-launch, expanding our programs (this makes me squeal with excitement), annual Hope Bags events (TWO locations!) and so much more. Thank you for walking alongside us, for being patient and supporting us. It’s easy for me to think, “I should’ve done more”….but in reality, I enjoyed the journey. I enjoyed meeting new people, showing our kids what true giving looks like and watching as they jump in to naturally serve. My dad has always told me, “It’s not about getting to where you are going, it’s about the relationships and the lessons you learn along the way”. Cheers! ~Holly
