Julien is suffering from severe burns to his face and upper body after another 8 year old boy poured nail polish remover on him and set him on fire this past Monday. Julien is in a ton of pain and will need a number of skin grafts. His internal organs were also effected. Julien has a long and difficult road to recovery. This heartbreaking story is hard to believe but unfortunately true.
After speaking to Julien’s mom, we learned that he has many long, painful and boring treatments ahead of him. He wished for an
iPad to keep him busy during his long road to recover and we granted that wish today.
GET WELL SOON JULIEN. WE ARE PRAYING FOR YOU BUDDY!
*TEEN WHO BEAT ALL ODDS GETS A WISH GRANTING FROM BIANCA'S KIDS AS SHE HEADS OFF TO COLLEGE* MEET SAVANNAH.
The following is the wish we received, however, some information has been redacted for confidentiality purposes:
Dear Bianca's Kids:
I am submitting a wish for a laptop for an adolescent whom I work with at *********. Savannah is 18 years old and has overcome many statistical odds through the years. Since she was 15 years old, she has dealt with issues relating to her self-worth. However, within these three years, she has overcome these obstacles. Savannah graduated high school this year and has been accepted to Stockton University for fall 2018 semester. She would like to become a social worker and assist others with overcoming similar obstacles that she has faced. Savannah also works part time at Panera Bread and has earned her drivers license. Savannah would benefit from a laptop for school, to assist her with achieving the goals she has set out to achieve.
Dear Ben, we are so proud of Savannah. In order to help keep her on track we have ordred her a new Samsung laptop that will be at her door in two days. We are going a bit further with a check for $250 for Savannah to put in her account for things she needs at school that may not be covered under her loans/grants. Good luck Savannah! Keep up the great work!
LOVING PARENTS WHO TOOK IN 2 FOSTER BABIES GET AN EXTRA BIG SURPRISE FROM BIANCA’S KIDS AFTER SUBMITTING A WISH.
Here is the wish we received:
Dear Bianca’s Kids:
This is a twofer. Ben and his sister Brooklyn came into our care through the foster care system because of **** in the home. Although they have most of their immediate needs met I would love to be able to 'personalize' their room and decorate it to make it feel more like 'home'. They came into our care so quickly (3 hour notice) we did not have time to paint their room and they have cribs, but both are ready to make the transition into 'big' boy and girl beds. I would love to be able to buy a rug and dressers, just to make their room more cozy. Ultimately it looks like they may become part of our family forever and that means that down the road we are going to have to 'add' a bedroom, so this could also help us offset some of the cost of that so we would not have to buy these items at that time.
I HAVE to add GO EAGLES!!!! I struggled to actually fill this out and ask for help, but once I saw all the Eagles connection I kind of thought it was fate. My husband is a die hard fan for years and years and our kids are pretty much destine to be also. I'll attach a picture of us 'celebrating' the Superbowl. I'm happy to send a different picture of just them too if you need :).
This wish struck is in so many ways. First, we adore our foster parents. Anyone who is selfless enough to take two children out of the foster care system and love them forever deserve a wish. So, we committed to Spencer to help get her everything the kids need for their new “big boy and big girl” bedrooms.
Second, as die hard Eagles fans ourselves, we sympathized with these amazing foster parents who is live in Virginia but are Eagles fans. They can’t go to games, they are constantly among non-fans etc. and still, they dress up the entire family in Eagles gear. Lol
Given all this, we decided that granting a wish for the children alone was not enough. We also gave these amazing foster parents a huge surprise by bringing them to Philly, putting them up in a hotel and taking them to Eagles Training Camp to meet all of the Philadelphia eagles on July 27!
Here is the wish we received via our website:
Hello Bianca’s Kids,
A friend told me about your organization. I looked over your website and saw all of the amazing things you have done for kids with special needs and in special situations.
I have 3 children, one is biologically mine and 2 are mine through international adoption. The youngest is Macy. This month we will hit the 3 year mark of having her as part of our family. She is 10 years old and has mild CP, Epilepsy and Cortical Vision Impairment. She has limited vision due to brain damage caused by lack of oxygen at birth. She was abandoned at 10 months old so we know nothing about her exact birth situation. She is a kind and loving soul and melts my heart. With her multiple needs, she needs a lot of assistance in daily life. She has 2 things she loves to do- ride a bike and read. She knows her letters and we are working on small words. It will take a while but I think one day she will get there!! Riding a bike is just not a possibility though. I have been wanting to get her a WeeHoo bike for a while now. It's just not something we can afford right now. It would allow her to attach to Mommy or Daddy's bike and be a part of a family bike ride! Awesome!
This is what it looks like-
We are thrilled to grant this wish for you for so many reasons. One Wee Hoo Bike on its way for Macy! Don’t forget to send us pics of Macy enjoying her bike ride. ♀️
Please share and follow our page for more heartwarming wishes. #weehoo #speacialneeds #biancaskids
Here is the wish we received via our website:
Dear Bianca's Kids:
Jaidan is a little boy who is being raised by his grandparents due to personal reasons. His grandparents are currently raising him and his 3 siblings. They have a total of four grandchildren they are caring for and finances are very tight. They can't afford the fees for him to play football. Jaidan would benefit from football to give him some stability and structure. Jaidan has endured a lot of trauma at a young age. Jaidan wants to play for the Woodstown Pirates and I am hoping that Bianca's Kids would be willing to pay for his registration and mandatory jersey fees.
It pains us to think that any child would be left out of organized sports and not be able to experience that rite of passage. We also love to help grandparents who are forced to step up and raise children when they child rearing days are long over. For all those reasons we are granting your wish and paying for Jaidan's registration and mandatory jersey fees.
DO NOT MISS IT! WATCH GIOVANNI’S FACE WHEN WE SURPRISED HIM WITH A BEDROOM MAKEOVER/EAGLES’ MAN CAVE FROM BIANCA’S KIDS. HE IS LEFT SPEECHLESS!
The link to his reaction is here:
Giovanni Hamilton is 10 years old and has Schwartz Jamel Syndrome. This happy-go-lucky little boy stole our hearts. Today, we hit the road to Giovanni’s house to put the final touches on his big surprise. A complete bedroom makeover (see prior post for photos of the room) courtesy of BIanca’s Kids. As a huge Eagles and Carson Wentz... fan, we knew a Eagles’ man cave was required.
This wish included brand new:
bunk beds with stairs and storage
Tv stand and bureau
42 in flat screen TV
Eagles sheets sets
Carson Went and Eagles’ fat head wall clings
Tons of football and Eagles wall art
Frames pics of Giovanni
And lots of love.
This wish came to us from a woman by the name of Michele. Michele advised that sweet Keaton was just eight months old when his father Tyler was killed in a horrific car accident this past May. Tyler was just 32-years-old. Precious little boy will never know his daddy. Michele is friends with Keaton’s grieving mother.
Michelle’s wish was for us to help Keaton’s Mom with some of the baby’s immediate needs. We granted that wish today with a check for $500.
We will keep Payton, his mom and dad in our prayers. We hope you will do the same.
WISH GRANTED FOR BEAUTIFUL 18-YEAR-OLD WITH SPINAL CORD INJURY THAT LEFT HIM PARALYZED. MEET ANTHONY
The below post and video from the “Make Anthony Walk Again” page came to our attention yesterday. It was a family’s cry for help to get their son Anthony a new and much needed wheelchair accessible van. The ramp on his current van broke (as can be seen in the video) as the van was really designed for a small child.
A year and a half ago, when Anthony was just 16, he suffered a spinal cord injury at an indoor trampoline park in New Jersey. His injury left him paraplegic. While he suffered one of the worst injury possible, this beautiful young man did not let it get the best of him. He’s a fighter who focuses his efforts to raise awareness for spinal cord injuries by going to schools and hospitals to share his story with others.
Today we granted a big wish for this hero. We are giving Anthony $3,000 towards a down payment for his new van AND he will be joining us at Eagles Training Camp this summer! He was SO excited and appreciative. You can help but fall in love with him.
Please follow Anthony’s page and donate to his GoFundMe campaign for his van if you can. The more he raises, the less his monthly payments will be. This young man is as beautiful on the inside as the outside. Show him some love.
Take a look at these photos.
Our sweet little wish recipient Bryson just received the IPAD we sent him. When you donate to BK, you are helping to improve and enrich the lives of struggling children. The beauty of our organization is that you actually get to SEE where your donating dollars go. Bryson appreciates YOU!
Bryson was born in October 10, 2013 with congenital hydrocephalus. Since that time, this little guy has battled. He’s in the hospital as we speak and we ask for prayers for Bryson. Meantime, we wanted to grant a wish for cutie pie.
Bryson’s IPad recently broke and we are replacing it. For children like Bryson, with frequent doctor visits and hospital stays, an IPad helps to occupy him. They are a priceless tool for special needs kids.
