A raw and vulnerable share of why this project came to life
What Is The Christmas Love Project?
The CLP is a fund raiser Rylee began 4 years ago to help single parents at a time of the year where stress is high and help is needed. Humbly so many parents struggle to bring that Christmas cheer on Christmas day to their children, and though we all know its fundamentally not what Christmas is all about as a parent is it something that we stress so much about. Let's be honest...
I wanted to create an experience where we can all come together at this time of year and support single parents in experiencing the miracles of this magical time of year.
Why Did This Come To Be?
The Christmas Love Project was sparked from an experience Rylee had before she started her online practice. Phil her husband was facing multiple heart surgeries and experiencing major PTSD. So Rylee stepped up and her family relied on family to support them over 2 years so that Phil could heal and groceries and bills were available and paid.
For any parent no matter circumstance that is a very hard thing to 1. have to rely on others to keep your family a float, and 2. be a "single" care giver to someone recovering from major events and raising a family.. while trying not to burn out.
Through those times we always tried our best to make sure our kids had the best of Christmas's no matter what, and as a parent i know how stressful and heart breaking it can be when you're truly doing your best.
So when Rylee started her online practice is was one of the first things she began doing each year. To come together with. her community to raise money and gift miracles and cheer!
