As you probably know, we recently received our notification from the IRS that we are officially a 501c3 non-profit organization!  This changes our "business" significantly, because now we can apply for grants.  Early in the year, I felt very optimistic and applied for...

I have been waiting and waiting to see someone out-and-about in a BraveHood.  It finally happened!  I am not surprised it was in Longmont, my hometown.  We probably have sold more here than anywhere else.

I am so lucky. 


We went to an amazing event on Saturday.  It was called A Celebration of Life and it was put on by the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children's Pediatric Oncology department.  There were so many things that were unbelievable about it.  I loved seeing all...

Our 501c3 application is moving right along.  It is very exciting!  When we started BraveHoods I spent a lot of time trying to figure out the best way to set up the organization.  Should we do an LLC and be for-profit but with a good heart like TOMS?  Should we try a...

We did it!  We have hit our goal to give out 1300 bravehoods to brave kids.  

I started this goal to help me to have something to Ali. For.  I have found that I need stuff like that.  I didn't need any motivation because I knew we are helping kids, but I like...

Oh MY!  I had the craziest night last night.  My mom's friend is part of a group that is called 100 Women Who Care Boulder County.  They meet 4 times a year and do something that I now know is called flash philanthropy.   In short, members nominate organizations that n...

I am often reminded of this story.  I hope you find it as funny as I do.


We don’t have cable.  When we watch TV, my husband and I usually watch Netflix or Amazon Prime.  My kids also watch Netflix and they occasionally watch a channel called QUBO.  I think it is only a...

We tried our best to win this amazing $10,000 grant from KIND, but unfortunately we didn’t win.  Of course, I am disappointed that we didn’t win it, but I feel like I learned so much from doing it.  I put together a list of some of the reasons that I am happy we did...
