Here’s the wish we received:
I would like to nominate our family friend Laura Chatburn for a wish. Laura is a single Mom who recently went back to school to brighten her family’s future and is now a medical assistant. Laura works full time. fortunately the daycare her daughter Bella goes to is staying open for essential employees. Bella will be 4 on the 29th. To add to her story Laura and Bella suddenly lost their Mom / Grandma in the beginning of this year and are learning to navigate without her. The doctors office Laura works at is mainly a geriatric office but has switched gears and now is a drive through Covid-19 testing area. So this single Mom is wearing many hats these days. She is a kind hearted woman trying to do the best she can in these uncertain times.
Thank you for your time, please stay safe ️️️️
Dear Jen, we did some investigating and figured out the best way we could honor Laura is to relieve her of some financial stress. So, we contacted Bella’s daycare and paid for 2 weeks of Bella’s tuition. Laura was so touched she cried.
Laura, thank you for your service!
We heard about Marcus - a little boy in Tennessee who was severely burned in an accident. What’s extraordinary about this young man is the fact that through his agonizing pain he continues to thank his Lord and Savior. He knows that Jesus has him and is holding him. And he never lets his family forget it no matter how intense the pain gets. Marcus could teach us all a little something about faith.
Marcus‘ wish was for an iPad and we were thrilled to grant that wish for him today. This will be a great item for him because he has long rides to the hospital and potentially hours of treatments.
We hope this helps kill some time for you Marcus. May God bless you buddy.
We’re sure you heard the saying that God knew what he was doing when he gave Babies to young people. Raising children is a full-time job for anyone but when you reach middle-age it’s 10 times harder. That’s why we love to help today’s grandmothers will step up to the plate and raise their grandchildren. Today’s wish granting is for one such grandma.
Lisa Murray reached out to us for help with groceries and bill money during the covert outbreak because she has a school bus driver that’s been out of work for weeks. She probably will be out of work for the rest of the year. Lisa has had custody of her three grandchildren for the past three years and continues to put her life aside to raise them.
Given leases incredible love and sacrifice we are granting her wish with the help of a few friends by gifting her the following:
1. A $500.00 check from Bianca’s Kids which includes a $100.00 donation from our supporter Jillian Leigh.
2. A plethora of food and canned food to fill her panty along with two $50 gift cards from our partners at Lead the Way Foundation in Williamstown.
3. A catered Easter dinner cooked with love by our friend Terri Fahey.
Lisa, thanks for being such an awesome grandma. We hope all of this helps to relieve you some of your stress at this time.
This problem is more and more prevalent given the coven pandemic crisis. Single-parent homes who relied on school meals to feed their children breakfast and/or lunch. We heard of one such mother who needed some help with groceries for her children as she was now supplying them way more meals than her budget could handle. Now that school meals can’t be relied on, we helped this mom with a check for $100 for groceries.
Ashley, we hope this helps feed the kids.
Here is the request for help we received:
Hello, I’m looking for help and I’m not sure where to turn too! I’m currently experiencing a high risk pregnancy. We have 5 other children, one who is very complex with multiple risk factors (Jaxson) to be detrimental to this virus! My fiance was forced to take a undetermined amount of leave from work due to Jaxson’s health issues and I currently cant work due to me being high risk and risking a premature labor. Medical bills are piling up. Regular bills just keep coming and now we are forced to put easter on the back burner due to all this! My heart is broken.
We are sorry your family is struggling so bad from the Covid outbreak. We are sending you a check for $500.00 to help you with groceries/bills. Hopefully this will be some of the stress.
Here’s the request for help we got:
Dear Bianca’s Kids,
My family and I could use the help ️ my son Logan (who’s 4th birthday is tomorrow ) has had two open heart surgeries and is on fast track for his next one. I am still working, longer hours than usual, husband has reduced hours and my sons hospital bills are piling up. Because my son is immunosuppressed my husband and I are having to miss work and “decide” who “gets to go to work” that day so the other will stay home with our son. Because of this, so many bills are being put on the back burner. Recently we were told by my sons cardiologist that he should not go near any child or non immediate family member as his heart is working extra hard already. Obviously this puts extra strain on my husband and I because not only are we extremely worried about my son and his upcoming heart surgery but we ourselves have to take extra precaution, but yet need to work to bring in an income to pay the bills to take care of our family. This vicious cycle is spiraling many down, but anything would help our family right now. Thank you ️
We can’t imagine how much harder this pandemic and all it involves is on families like yours. Subsequently, we are granting your request for help with a check for $300. We hope it takes some pressure off you abs your husband in the next couple weeks.
Here’s the wish we received via our website at Biancaskids.org:
My name is Samantha. I am a single mom to 3 beautiful little girls. Isabella is 8 and she has Niemann Pick Disease Type C, another name for it is children's alzheimers. Piper is 6 and she has autism/adhd and bipolar disorder. Phoebe is 5 and also has autism/adhd and odd. We have hit a very hard time and I am trying my best to do what I can for my girls. I can not work because I stay home and care for Isabella who requires 24/7 care. We have no transportation, I walk everywhere. When isabella is admitted to the hospital frequently I have no way to go and see her while she is in there because I don't even have the money for a city bus. We live in a run down motel because I can't afford the rent, deposit, and utilities on a house. I walk to the grocery store every day because we only have a mini refrigerator in the motel that doesn't hold much. I can only carry 2 or 3 bags of food at a time. I do everything all by myself and I try so hard for my girls.
Thank you for your time.
Samantha, we are granting your wish with a check for $500. This should help you with groceries for the girls for a few weeks. We hope this small blessing will relieve you of a little stress at this time.

***Mother of precious little boy whose story of unemployment due to Covid-19 was featured on CNN gets a little blessing from Bianca's Kids.***
Opal Foster is the loving mother of an adorable little boy named Jeremiah who has Down Syndrome. She was featured in a story on CNN this week that some of our board members saw & were touched by.
Opal is a graphic designer who lost her job 2 weeks ago due to Covid-19. Like a million other Americans, Opal is waiting on unemployment checks which are delayed due to the number of people filing for benefits. In the meantime, there is no income but bills still need to be paid and Jeremiah needs to be fed.
Our focus right now is not to grant lavish wishes to help people like Opal pack their fridges or pay a bill or two. To that end, we are sending Opal $300 to help her with groceries this month.
Stay strong Opal! We WILL get through this together,
If anyone else would like to send this beautiful family some monetary help you can do that by sending it through Paypal to Opalfoster@hotmail.com.

**ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL FAMILY EFFECTED BY COVID-19 GETS MUCH NEEDED HELP FROM BIANCA'S KIDS. MEET THE TYPETANARS**
In our effort to help as many families as we can during these uncertain times, we are blessing families with money for bills and/or groceries to help them get by. Accordingly, we received a request for help from Emily. Emily and her husband are the proud parents of their special needs son Henry. Emily advised that Henry just got a trach and she's been his full time caregiver since he was born. Emily also informed us that her husband just got laid off due to Covid-19 and they aren’t so sure his factory will survive after Corona is over. Emily said money was beyond tight before this layoff happened and that any little bit helps.
That being said, we are helping Emily & her loving family with a check for $300.00 to use for bills and/or groceries (wherever needed). Emily was in tears and beyond happy for the blessing and we couldn't be happier to do it for her.
If you know a family struggling due to Covid-19, please tag them on our page and have them follow us for upcoming posts on how they can win some help from Bianca's Kids.
