The mission of The Shyann Kindness Project is to serve and put smiles on the faces of underprivileged, at-risk, and medically fragile children by providing fun and needed gifts while promoting and teaching kindness and acceptance of all people.
The Shyann Kindness Project is a 100% volunteer 501(c)(3) organization that has served
more than 26,000 underprivileged and/or medically fragile children since April 2006!
THERE'S NEVER BEEN A CHARGE FOR OUR PROGRAM!!
OUR HEARTFELT THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Dear TSKP Volunteers, Donors & Partners,
When we founded The Shyann Kindness Project over 13 years ago in our daughter Shyann's memory, we never imagined it would become what it is today. We have received countless blessings throughout the years, including meeting so many wonderful people. But there have also been many challenges, and after so many years, they have taken a toll on both our physical and mental well-being.
With Glenn nearing retirement from his job and both of us wanting to spend more time together and with family, as well as travel, we both feel this chapter of our life is coming to an end and it's time to begin a new one. Therefore, after much thought, discussion and prayers, it is with very mixed emotions that we have made the difficult decision to announce our intention to retire from our involvement with The Shyann Kindness Project.
While this also means the eventual dissolution of The Shyann Kindness Project, we will continue with our scheduled Kindness Gift Giving Events at least until January, after which time we will assess whether or not we will be able to do any additional events. It is our intention to donate any remaining inventory to other nonprofits serving children or to school districts.
For those of you who have been supporting The Shyann Kindness Project through Fry's Community, Amazon Smile, or Good Shop, we have appreciated your support and hope you will find another worthy nonprofit organization to support through those community programs.
We are very grateful to and thank all of you who have supported The Shyann Kindness Project over the years either by volunteering your time, financial or in-kind donations, grant funding, or participating in/supporting our triathlon fundraiser. With your help, we were able to put smiles on the faces of more than 26,000 underprivileged and/or medically fragile children in the Tucson area by teaching about kindness and passing it on to them with the gifts we provided.
We feel honored and privileged that you chose to support The Shyann Kindness Project, and we thank you again for helping us make a positive impact in the lives of so many children in need by putting smiles on their faces in memory of Shyann.
With much gratitude,
Sandy & Glenn Rosati
