This week, Simonetta Lein, social media influencer and founder of The Wishwall Foundation, visited Dignity Housing in Philadelphia, to deliver something pretty special.

Simonetta and her team were armed with an array of HOPE BOXES to deliver to the girls, but she delivered so much more on this very special afternoon.  The boxes themselves were beautiful, but it was Simonetta’s words that were the real gift, all the girls walked away incredibly happy, honored and inspired.

 Some words from Simonetta:
“These girls are daughters of single moms and they are victims of domestic violence. They received help and support by @dignityhousing and today we celebrated them. One of our missions is to foster new generations of women, so this is for them.

Today it was a WISH GRANTED, we thank everyone who supported us and keep on supporting us. We thank especially those who supported particularly this wish come true. If you are watching, please know that you are making a difference and we are grateful.

Together we can make many smiles, one wish at the time. In the picture there is our founder @simonettalein with the president of #thewishwallfoundation , member of the board of Dignity Housing and one of our girls with the Hope Box in her hands.

The Wishwall Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization and social community. The Foundation is built on the “pay it forward” philosophy. Its core principals are to give a voice to the voiceless and to help make meaningful wishes come true. The Wishwall Foundation is multi-faceted. It consists of The Wishwall Online and The Wishwall in Every City, where people can express their wishes and where the Foundation inspires them to help each other and grant those dreams that are more meaningful.

The Wishwall Foundation collaborates with other non-profit groups that promote social integration and the defense of human rights, as well as with companies who wish to sponsor worthy initiatives. The Wishwall Foundation seeks to be a global movement that inspires people and unites humanity through art, fashion, and goodwill.”

The WishWall Foundation believes giving HOPE is priceless…we agree.

“Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.”
~ Henry Ward Beecher

Gratitude, thankfulness, gratefulness, and appreciation are key ingredients for making life worthwhile. The more things (even everyday things) in your life you feel grateful for, the more good things tend to find you.

We wanted to share our gratitude to Sanctuary on 2nd a local gem here in Queen Village, Philadelphia. Sanctuary on 2nd specializes in therapeutic healing massage, relaxing body treatments and has such a dedicated and caring staff.

Sanctuary’s staff recently hosted a dinner in our honor and we were thrilled to collect a huge boxful of toys for Peg’s Presents to give to local children in need. We thought this post would be a nice way to honor their generosity, and we’d also like to thank you for reading this post. If you’d like to contribute, please know that even a $10.00 donation will help us buy a birthday present for a child who has no toys.

Want to get involved? Here’s how to donate to Peg’s Presents.

A big THANK YOU, as always.
