Preparation for Christmas in July
Since 2018, LLF has held its Christmas in July event, in partnership with Hasbro, to bring holiday joy to the children of Liberty City in the summer! What began as a fun day of toys and games evolved into LLF’s 2019 Christmas in July, where LLF partnered with Rosenhaus Sports’s Youth Fitness Clinic to bring 500 children from Miami Children’s Initiative and Gwen Cherry Park an afternoon of fun fitness activities alongside LLF volunteers followed by toys and games from Hasbro. This year we partner with The Miami Dolphins to bring a beautiful day of giving at the Dolphin’s training facility.

The kids at Story Hour love meeting new people, and the contributions from volunteers with diverse backgrounds and fields of expertise help create an inspirational and nurturing program for the children. Therefore, we are thankful for all of our volunteers’ continued support.

DGFG Live and Activity Hour at The Motivational Edge
This past Wednesday, Warrior Focus Foundation taught the kids at Motivational Edge the importance of fitness as a form of self-love. At Little Lighthouse, we seek to equip children with the confidence they need to build a successful and healthy future. Warrior Focus Foundation aids in furthering this mission at Motivational Edge with their constant reinforcement of honesty, work ethic, and their advocacy for self-determination.
LADD Circus school offers an array of circus related disciplines. This Wednesday, master trapeze artist, Nicolas Allard, taught our intern and two children from The Motivational Edge some amazing trapeze tricks! At the end of our session, LADD offered kids from The Motivational Edge a scholarship to continue having fun and learning the art of circus. We had a wonderful time, thank you Nicolas!
