HAPPY POP-UP PARTY DAY! What’s a better way to end the BEST DAY EVER than going out with a BANG?! And by BANG I mean a release that’s a party piñata packed full of fixin’s for FUN, FUN, FUN in the SUN, SUN, SUN. I really wanted y’all to get a big taste of summer with this one, so the prints range from picnic blanket inspired raspberry gingham to bursting tropical blooms (and of course I had to make a Boho Top out of it!). I truly think there is something for everyone in this colorful carousel of a collection!

Like this Beach Boy inspired beauty… The California Dreamin’ Callye Dress was designed for the little beach bunny in your life! We all know our little miss Sunshine winner Callye has a smile that goes for miles, but she also has the sweetest personality with an overwhelmingly obvious LOVE for life (and her mama and her family, of course!). This silhouette with it’s new bodice and comfy knit smocked back is perfect for all the adventures (and vacations) this season brings! Ah, I just love it. And I just love Callye. They’re both my favorite parts of this release!!!


What about high flying pennants, retro geo dots, and ‘kitten paw’ florals for your best summer festival flare?! If so, you’ll be the queen of the boardwalk in our Good Vibes Twirly and Post Card Tank! I truly tried to bottle up the happy-go-lucky vibes of summer in this set, so grab your Beach Shack or Desert Days Souvenir Sacks and hit the beach (or your backyard)! Yep, that’s right, I designed 2 little cross body bags for your kiddos this release, too!! And I gotta say, I really love how they turned out. The perfect balance of cute and cool if you ask me!! Although, most gals at my office would NOT ask me for ‘cool’ advice, but what do they know?! Hehe 😉


Omg I almost wrote this whole post without mentioning SWIM. Have I lost my mama llama mind?!! (Haha, I haven’t brought up LLAMA’s either!!) Swim is so new for me, and honestly was the most challenging thing we’ve done so far at Wildflowers! The fit is so important, most styles went though 5+ samples and size sets to get it right! I can’t wait to hear what you think. A labor of love doesn’t even begin to cover it for these beach beauties…but that LOVE makes it all worth it, don’t you think?!


Okay, last but not least look at this cuteness! Of course I’m talking about MARGO, but y’all can also feast your eyes on that cute little reversible Hip Hip Hooray set!!


I can’t wait to hear your faves from Pop-Ups this week!!
XO,

Photo shoots are always some of the best times. See, we are a group of creative chicks, but we’re also a group of energizer bunnies who love to get their hands dirty!! At photo shoots we get to run around, play with the kiddos, review fits of different styles, make new outfit combinations, and just see all our hard work -from concept to fabrics, and now photos – come to life! It’s such a treat being able to design the clothes AND work the shoot. In a past life, I wasn’t allowed to help orchestrate photo shoots, even though we were shooting my designs. I always felt such a great disconnect between the designs and the photography, but that’s just not how Wildflowers works. We are a team here, from start to finish, and I LOVE THAT.

So when we began chatting about what sort of SPECIAL photo shoot we wanted to do for our Sunshine Search winner Callye, we couldn’t get THE BEACH out of our minds. The 4th release of Best Day Ever screams boardwalk fun, groovy Beach Boys tunes, and just pure SUMMER, SUMMER, SUMMER. From 6 different dresses, to 6 different swim suits, we’ve got so much cuteness coming your way!

We decided that sunny Seaside, Florida was the perfect location for our spunky Spring release! I was over the moon when Jen, Callye’s mama, was on board to fly to the beach rather than to Austin! It was funny because Jen was just down for whatever!! She’s totally my kind of girl. All she wanted was to meet the crew and see Callye ROCK a photo shoot (AND THAT SHE DID!).

I can still feel the excitement when I first met these ladies. Jen and Callye came downstairs and Jen and I couldn’t help but run full throttle at each other, ending in a huge dancing, laughing, kinda-crying, bear hug! It felt like I hadn’t seen this good friend of mine in SO long, even though it was actually the first time we were ever meeting! I couldn’t believe we got so lucky with this wonderful person and her darling, doll baby of a daughter! PLUS!!! We got a surprise guest, too! Jen’s mama Velma showed up for the fun, too, which made the whole experience extra special, if you ask me!

I want to tell you about all the fun from the shoot RIGHT NOW, but I gotta save some of my stories for later, don’t you think?! We’ve got almost 2 weeks until Spring 4 preview days start!! So if you haven’t planned a pop-up yet, you’re not going to want to miss this release!! It feels like the fireworks after a week long festival to me, basically the part everyone has been waiting for! Don’t miss out by not showing up! <3

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks. I’ll try not to bore you with the endless details of birthdays and brunches and parties and releases…just kidding. That’s all I’m gonna write about today! But before I jump into all the celebratory fun I’ve been having, I wanna scream from the rooftops that RELEASE 3 IS HERE!!! The world just got a lot more colorful (see all that new cuteness here!).

ANYWAY… My baby girl celebrated her first birthday. WOW. What a sentence! I’m not sure I ever imagined saying those words!! But now I can’t imagine NOT saying those words, does that even make sense?!

Her party was “rainbow donut” themed because I think you have to have some sort of cheesy theme at a first bday party, right?! I probably brought enough cheesiness just by being the ring leader for the decor! I couldn’t help myself when it came to all the cuteness at Target, Meri Meri, Amazon, etc!! And, of course, we had donuts galore!! I went to 3 different donut shops to make sure we had the perfect assortment (and WAY too many leftovers). Margo was decked out in her rainbow best in a sweet bubble from Eleanor Rose, our sister company.

The day was filled with treats, pinatas, and presents, but the absolute best part was seeing so many people show up to celebrate her! I never in a million years thought Mark and I would move to Texas and create this whole new world for ourselves, complete with a baby girl and friends that truly feel like family! A family that made Margo’s birthday feel so special. A family that makes me feel like the luckiest girl in the world every single day.

We turned the corner after Margo’s bday and it was MY bday (and also April Fools, and ALSO Easter this year). It was a wonderful blur of birthday brunch and backyard shenanigans, complete with sprinklers, kiddy pools, and beautiful weather!


And literally 2 days later, Spring release 3 happened! I guess they say good things happen in threes, right?! But I think we’re always in the middle of about a dozen good things, so maybe that expression doesn’t even apply?! All I know is I’M SO PUMPED ABOUT SPRING! It’s brought so much joy, BIG CELEBRATIONS, and cuteness…and there’s more coming. But I won’t start talking Spring 4 now, I gotta stay focused on our current release or at least as focused as Sam McDonald can be!?

Until next time…
XO,

SAM

Sometimes starting a new collection or release is just sooooo hard. Now, don’t worry… I always get there…eventually, but the struggle can be SO real sometimes! 

Now that I told you how tough it can be, let me tell you how EASY Spring Release No. 3 was for me! Crazy, right!? I know, I know, you aren’t used to me saying that the colors just came to me…but they truly did this time! I knew I wanted a romantic, airy-feeling release this Spring. And once I sat on the floor with my boxes of Pantones, the hazy shades of coral and lagoon-like shades of blue and green appeared to me! 

I think it was magic. Or maybe it was Denise (I’d like to think she’s a guiding hand in all I do.) Or maybe I should just take the credit for these “smooth like water” shades, but it just felt like everything fell perfectly into place.

Once the colors were nailed down, I started pulling the prints that felt soft, vintage, romantic, and UNIQUE. I always choose a plethora of florals and then slowly whittle them down to the perfect balance—a mix of tight calico florals, big splashy roses, and spacious botanical prints with butterfly accents! Then I find my novelties! At the beginning of the season I made a little “road map” of all the cute “character” or “conversational” prints I wanted to find and use…which was a totally new thing for me! But there was so much cuteness I wanted to cover that the list was an absolute necessity (especially for my new Mom brain)! Let’s see, we’ve crossed off unicorns, dragonflies, teacups, lemons, rainbows, donuts, bunnies, chicks, ladybugs, rain boots, umbrellas, and strawberries…and we’re just getting started!

Let me introduce you to the Spring Release No. 3 novelties that make my heart go pitter patter all over the place! First my little swans came a swimming… I haven’t worked with a swan print in YEARS, so bringing back this beautiful memory (My last collection with Denise had swans <3) in a new way was very special to me. I love their smooth Snow White bodies with apricot feathers, against the Eggshell Blue ground…surrounded by all that pretty navigate green!! And the lily pads!! Ahh…I’m a lover of details and this print takes the crown!! And when I mixed it with the soft sweater knit bodice (I love textures!) I was in heaven. The Swan Lake Dress is everything I ever dreamed of. 

Now, even more MAGICAL, we have our little mermaids!! Part of me loves this THE MOST because The Little Mermaid was hands down my favorite Disney movie growing up. You can still find me belting the words to “Part of Your World” at night when getting Margo in her pjs (she won’t stay still on her changing table unless I’m entertaining her with a tune!). So, it was a no brainer that mermaids HAD to make an appearance somewhere. The other reason I just adore this print is because their hair reminds me of Troll dolls too! I grew up loving those weird little dolls and then years later I meet Denise and she collected them growing up too. One day she brought in her entire collection for me to have. Probably a little silly, but I just loved that we were weirdos that collected these dolls 15 years a part. 

Lastly, hello watercolor brush strokes! On soft jersey knit!! When I colored this print up, I had to step back and stare. I just adore the mix of colors, and the way the distressed stripes look on a knit! Using this dreamy technicolor stripe as a superstar for this release was a snap! It begs to be an all over print, so I decided to showcase it on the comfy Betty Dress, and the knit trapeze top! 

There are SO many more details I want to tell y’all about. But I think it might be better if you just go to a Pop-Up Party and see (and FEEL) for yourself! There’s so much texture mixed into this romantic, watercolor release…ahh. My words, as rambling as they are, will not do it justice. Trust me!!

On that note….Pop-Up Parties begin TOMORROW (AND it’s a very special little lady’s 1st birthday tomorrow too…MARGO!) Fingers crossed you fall in love with this dreamy release like I have.

I am SO pumped up today! I’ve got sand, surf, and our little miss SUNSHINE on my mind! Y’all didn’t forget about our contest winner, Callye, did ya?! I mean, how could you with those dimples and sparkling eyes?! We are so excited that this weekend we finally get to meet her and her lovely mama, Jennifer, in sunny Florida! Yes, you heard that right… Our original contest stated we’d be flying 2 lucky ladies down to Austin to hang out on our turf, buuuut…we got a crazy hair of an idea that our 4th and final release of the season needed a beach! Not just any beach, but the white, beautiful sand of Seacrest, Florida. I reached out to Jen ASAP because I definitely wanted to give her the Austin experience, if she’d prefer that! But this mama was totally on board, especially when I said WHY we wanted a beach…to shoot SWIM, of course!

Yes, you heard that right! I finally got to design swimwear. I can’t believe it. You have NO idea how long Denise and I wanted to design swim, but we never felt confident in getting the fit/function of it all right. Well, I decided to dive in, with the help from Mano, my tech design partner! After months of samples and samples and more samples, I think we’ve created something really fun and unique for your girls. MUCH more on that later, back to BUSINESS (because I’m all about business).

So Kate (photographer), Caroline (creative director), Andrea (creative strategist), Erin (graphic designer, photo assistant), and I are flying out on Sunday to meet, greet, and have a lovely time with these two! I just can’t wait to meet them and hug their cute necks! I have so many things I’m excited about, but I think I mostly can’t wait to just go to dinner and hang with these sweet people. Wildflowers has brought so much beauty into my life, but the people…the people are everything. I just know Jen is going to be another soul sister of mine! And Callye, well, I’m going to put her in my pocket and keep her forever! Or at least I’m certain I’ll want to!

Okay before I go, there’s one more thing I just gotta tell ya about. You guessed it…BEST DAY EVER RELEASE NO. 3! I know, you’re probably thinking “Sam, slow down!”  – but I can’t! Preview Pop-Up Parties start March 20th! Which just so happens to be the first day of Spring AND Margo’s 1st birthday! So I know it’s going to be the best day ever! Until then, take a look at these little sneaky sneaks and tell me what you think! This is the release where I really FELT I was coming into my own…so I hope you love it and feel that as much as I do!

XO,

SAM

Word on the street is you guys are digging release 2?! You have no idea what a relief that is. Ha, and now I can begin to worry about Spring 3… It’s a bit different. But more on that later!

Sooo… This was a BIG release! HUGE, actually. Did you notice all of the little novelties and vintage-y florals? What about those little peeps!! Omg, I used to eat those UP during Easter as a kid, so I had to add a nod to those too-sweet-for-life marshmallow chicks. I wonder, what is your favorite part about this release? I have a feeling it’s the rainbows. And I cannot blame you for that! They’re so darn HAPPY. Actually, that’s what I love most about this release…how HAPPY it all feels. 

And if you know me, happy is what I’m all about. I remember being a senior in high school and being asked “what do you want to be when you grow up” and my response was always  “happy.” I never had any expectations of making lots of money or owning fancy cars one day… Heck, I would have never even uttered the words “designer” back then. And now that seems like a century ago. How lucky am I to say that I grew up to be what I always wanted to be? HAPPY. 

ANYWAY. Something that made me down right giddy was watching Margo model these precious bubbles! When I started Spring, you KNOW I was SO ready to design baby bubbles. I mean, what else was Margo going to wear all Spring and Summer long?! So seeing her in them at the shoots has been pretty indescribable. My cutest creation + the little works of art I’ve been making for years = total magic.✨ It’s been fun dabbling in different designs and different fabrications. For this release I tried 2 different french terry styles and one woven! It’s been interesting striking the balance between too many details for a little baby (I never want to overwhelm the MOST adorable part of any outfit…the child!) and enough to make it feel special, so special your babe HAS to have it! But I guess that’s the tricky part when I design anything… Striking that balance! 

I think I’ve said this before, but this Spring is really like a big ol’ (BEAUTIFUL) science experiment for me. I tried SO many different things, updated designs from my past, and kinda re-defined what our releases look like. I can’t wait to show you what I mean in Spring 3 with a fresh batch of “smooth like water” colors! Ahhh…broken record time, but…I CAN’T WAIT TO SHOW YOU. I’m so HAPPY I get try all of these new fabrics, colors, styles, etc., with you!! You know that quote that goes “What if I fall? Oh, but my darling what if you fly?” I feel like that sums up this little dream come true to me. I’m always worried I’ll fall, but y’all always make me feel like I can fly. 

Thank you SO MUCH for that. The best is yet to come, trust me!

XO,

Sam

Photo shoots are always pretty wonderful days. Our kick butt, girl power super squad (aka our team), a group of little gals that feel like family, new never-been-worn styles, and a beautiful location…how could you go wrong? 

Our Second release photo shoot was pure magic…or maybe a better description would be pure homegrown GOODNESS. Either way, all the stars aligned and after an 8-hour shoot on a local farm, the collection came to life in a way I never imagined. If there was one release this Spring that made me nervous, it was this one. I was worried I was going too bright in terms of colors, or too broad in terms of fabrications, or there were way too many silhouettes?! I don’t know… First I design, then I worry – ha, like clock work. But photo shoots give me a little reset, heck, SOMETIMES photo shoots even give me a little bit of an ego! That’s bad, right? I shouldn’t admit it, but seriously, seeing all the girls surrounded in my designs…well it feels good. Don’t worry, I don’t stay full of myself too long! Like today, I’m back to being the good ol’ worry wart you know and love! (oh gosh, there I go being full of myself again!)

This rainbow of a collection is filled with all the things that remind you of this beautiful, transitional season…like blooming tossed florals, garden inspired prints, and a handful of fruity fabrics! And the color palette? It’s almost JUICY. Haha, okay that’s a little strange, but it’s so vibrant and saturated, like a fresh picked strawberry. I took the colors from the first release and played them up…so the shades you only saw sprinkles of in the first release – you’ll really see take center stage here! I’m talking Paprika red, Ultramarine navy, Kelly Green, and new hints of Sky Blue, too! 

Back in May 2017, I came to the review table with about 100 different styles to pick from. Out of those 100 styles, I had my eye on one dress that COULD NOT BUDGE. I mean, this dress HAD to be in the line or I didn’t know what I was going to do. This layered up beauty, the Summertime Sandy Dress, is a parfait of florals, lace, rainbows, lemons, and lots…and lots of twirl! This dress encompasses the entire release and is one of my favorite little masterpieces…ever. The dainty tie strap shoulders, feminine slight V neck, and smocked back (for a comfy fit!) are just the icing on the cake! 

And now, I blinked and Release 2 Pop-Up Parties are here! This is our largest release of the season with over THIRTY styles to choose from — all designed with over 25 mixed and matched fabrics that look so fresh they could have been plucked from the tree this morning! There’s literally just gotta be something for everyone! Or at least I hope there is!

XO,

SAM

P.S. To thank those who took the time to read my rambling words today…let’s have a blog contest, shall we?! Last year, I mentioned one of my go-to moves for guaranteed giggles during a photo shoot was the BLANK. Post what you think BLANK is and I’ll send the first winner one of my top fave looks from this release! 

What a couple of weeks it’s been! Release days always feel like a whirlwind. And Best Day Ever was no exception! We encountered a few challenges, but all in all I think we are so close to smooth sailing! SO, so close. A huge thank you to our Consultants for rockin’ it last week! I can’t imagine how it feels to be in the front lines, chatting it up with you and all your precious daughters! I bet it’s nerve-wracking and fulfilling and exciting and wonderful… I don’t think I could ever do what these ladies do! I know I couldn’t. I guess we all just fall perfectly into our places, don’t we?

Obviously I gotta tell you all about some of my fave fave faves from the first release! We all know I’m a smitten kitten for all of the styles, of course! They’re all my little babies and there are reasons and details I adore about each and everyone. I could tell you why I chose the exact shade of pink for the Pink Crush Tee and when I decided it was going to be a heather color. I could tell you exactly why I choose dragonflies prints, all because of one lady and her beautiful story (that’s you, Brenen!). It’s strange, but they’ll never just be designs… They’ll never just be item numbers on a spread sheet to me. I work so hard on every inch of them, from the first thought bubbles in my brain to the scribbles on my notebooks to the delicately drawn digital sketches to working hand-in-hand with Mano to make sure the fit and construction are all the bees’ knees— these little designs are our little works of art! And it’s a dream come true when they’re donned by your daughters.

The first better than basic print I came up with for Spring was the bouncy, uneven dots of the Blue Skies Betty Dress. Who doesn’t love a good polka dot, am I right? It’s almost impossible for me not to include them on a board of designs. However, my most fave dots are the ones that aren’t so even and lined up in rows…so these imperfect, scribbly dots quickly became a favorite! And when I added them to this sweet and easy Betty silhouette…well, it was all blue skies from there! This little frock, in soft and strong medium weight french terry, is the ‘all year ‘round’ style every gal needs! French terry is known for it’s cool hand feel and tough durability, you’ll be grabbing this style each and every season….in the summer it wicks away sweat and in the winter it’s soft little curled interior will keep your gal stay warm and cozy —making Betty MORE than cute, but pretty darn practical too!

I can’t tell you about my most simple favorite without going on (and on) about my most special favorite, too! When I was a little girl, I had the imagination of a unicorn. Okay, honestly, I’m not sure when I found out what unicorns were, but I loved girly stuff…and I loved playing pretend. Barbies, tea parties, flowers, making bug habitats (okay, not so girly, but I’ve always had a tomboy-ish flare) and playing house were my thing. Do you remember playing house?! I was always the mommy. And as the mommy, I always insisted on having dignified tea parties! When I dreamed up the Storybook Ballet Dress I wanted it to make your girl feel like a princess! A little princess playing house, hosting tea parties, and daydreaming of all the fun and silly adventures that lay ahead of her. So I made sure it was chalk full of sweet details, like the tea party apron…the magical wishes trim…and the dainty double flutters. I also consider Mama’s when I design, and I know not every mama loves a good novelty, so I decided to make the apron on the Ballet dress removable! Once it’s unbuttoned you see the full vintage inspired floral laurels on the skirt– it’s crazy that this is the only place you’ll see this fabric because it is my FAVORITE. From whimsically wonderful to folksy vintage, this dress is the queen of variety and cuteness!

And together…these really show the Wildflowers range, don’t you think?! Sweet and simple, or dainty and covered in details…that’s how I roll. Always want to create a little something for everyone, and because I myself can never truly pick one favorite… So the best of both worlds it is for me! Like these two sisters, both sweet as sugar…and funny as can be…but both SO different. Eleanor and Adeline, our CEO Ashton’s darling daughters, are the perfect example of little wildflowers to me. What an incredible blessing it is to be able to design something that makes them both smile 🙂

XO,

There are collections that you want to ease into, slowly building a rich color palette and variety of silhouettes to introduce you to the new season ahead. But this year, I wanted to greet spring with a big “HELLO THERE, SO NICE TO SEE YOU!” I didn’t want to tip toe into the sweet shades this delightful season brings, I wanted to make a big ol’ splash!

Getting started — it can be toughest time for me! My brain and my eyes always take a little while to get on the same page. For instance, my brain might be planning on rusty vintage oranges, dirty chartreuses, and faded pinks, but my eyes might be seeing something else entirely! And I’m always, always waiting for that strike of creativity to hit me. Little did I know, my biggest inspiration was about to happen…

I was 9 months pregnant at this time and ready to meet my little nugget, Margo Denise. What would she look like?! Who would she be?! I couldn’t wait to meet her, and apparently she was a little excited too, because she decided to come early — on the first day of Spring! On March 20th, we welcomed little Miss Margo into this crazy world! Life as I knew it would never be the same (and certainly designing wouldn’t be!)! She is the most precious thing I’ve ever created. She’s one-of-a-kind and all mine! With spring colors and fabrics on my screen and a little bundle of joy on my lap, I felt like I finally had the inspiration I was always looking for— my own real-life daughter! I knew exactly who I was designing for now and I knew exactly WHY I was designing… To keep this sweet and innocent girl ‘little’ (and totally stylin’ hehe) as long as possible. And maybe, just maybe, while I work to create silhouettes that feel lovely, youthful, and happy, I’ll be able to create a little magic, too.

Caroline, our creative director, put into words what I was designing and what I was feeling before even I did… She felt it herself as soon as she saw the board filled with 100’s of little frocks. And together, we decided ‘Best Day Ever’ is a collection that celebrates everyday magic!

I’m talking about the simple, day-to-day, magic that is just as sparkly, but maybe even harder to see. Sometimes magic is getting your kiddos to school on time. Sometimes magic is eating veggies every day of the week or getting your 64oz of water in! Magic doesn’t always have to be so fantastical—it doesn’t have to be filled with illusions, myths, and tricks. The most understated magic, the kind that we experience all the time, whether we notice it or not. And THAT’S what I want to celebrate this season! The everyday magic that fills our lives to the brim with endless giggles, ooey gooey love, and cozy cuddles.

I must say, I didn’t notice this special, almost invisible, sorcery until I had Margo. Have you ever heard the saying or scrolled past a post on instagram that says ‘Mothers are Magic”? When I read those 3 words something inside me clicked. Mothers ARE magic!! And so are the little nuggets we create! A pure, real-life type of magic that fills our mornings and nights. It’s the everyday magic that leaves us enchanted long after the storybook ends, and the princesses and prince live happily ever after.

I wanted to capture the effortless joy of being a kid— where your whole world is make believe, and magic is around every corner just because you BELIEVE it is…here’s to hoping I did just that!

XO,

Sam

P.S. Did y’all notice our pretty new blog header?! There might be a sneak or 2 hidden in all that messy cuteness!

Wildflowers Clothing is firmly rooted in hope. Some might say that hope is just merely wishful thinking — but it’s much more than that — it’s what keeps our chins up, our hearts open, and our souls on fire. It finds us in our darkest times and shines a light, and it whispers to us in the best of times saying “you are exactly where you are supposed to be!” Hope is one of life’s greatest gifts and spreading it comes in all kinds of forms — smiling at a stranger, sharing your time, giving words of encouragement, paying a kind favor forward, and being there for a friend. 
 

Through our Seeds of Hope Program, we are humbled to be able to help children who are in desperate need of hope — and we could not do it without you! Because of your love and support for our growing brand, we were able to donate $10,000 from our Written in the Stars collection to Unbound’s education fund. The best part is — this donation will help 30 children continue their education by providing them primary education, shoes, uniform and transportation! Education is the only way to end vicious cycles of poverty for children so that they can rise above their circumstances and find a path to success. Somewhere in this big world, your Written in the Stars order will provide light to someone’s life and give them hope for a brighter future! And for that we want to say  T-H-A-N-K  Y-O-U!


 
We are excited to continue to spread seeds of hope through our charity for this season — Destiny Rescue. This incredible organization puts their lives on the line to end the sexual exploitation and trafficking of young children by rescuing, restoring, protecting, and empowering children who are in desperate need of rescuing. They are a voice to the children who don’t have one and a light to children in the darkest places.


 
I’ve enjoyed getting to know one of their passionate representatives, Aaron. When Aaron found out that we wanted to partner with Destiny Rescue this season, he was so eager to share his message with us and our consultants that he jumped on a flight to Austin and joined our Spring Conference. It was such an honor to have him speak and share his stories with us. While stories of child sexual exploitation and trafficking are difficult to hear, he reminded us that we can’t be silent. These children need a voice and Destiny Rescue gives them one. His hope and energy for their mission is absolutely contagious and we all felt it. $1,500 is the average cost of rescuing one child and with each purchase this season we will be one step closer to meeting our goal — rescuing 15 children! Destiny Rescue is out to save the world from sexual exploitation of children, and we are ready to be a part of it with YOU!
