Jillian’s Soldier of the Month – December 2013
Pink Hearts LV
Our December Solider of the Month is actually a squadron called Pink Hearts LV. Pink Hearts was founded by Brooke Neubauer, Nicole West, Charlotte Stephenson, and Suzy Miller. They began by selecting children’s names off an Angel Tree. One child became 46 the next year, 100 the next, and 167 last year! In addition to their Angel Tree drive, they also hold an annual Turkey Basket drive every Thanksgiving which fed 81 families this year. Other charitable giving they have done includes collecting essentials for tornado relief, for the firefighters battling the Kyle Canyon fire, fundraising for 9 year old brain cancer patient Jaxon Piro, and of course our own Jillian Moore.
Nicole knew Jesse and Tom Moore through the automobile business community here in Las Vegas and previously worked with General Dad, Jesse Moore. Upon hearing of Jillian’s illness, the Pink Hearts began selling their Jillian’s Army Bracelets throughout the Las Vegas Valley at numerous businesses. The members spent countless hours delivering bracelets, picking up proceeds, ordering more bracelets, and repeating the whole process over and over again. Things really took off as the Pink Hearts were able to get media coverage for Jillian’s fight and publicity for her website and Facebook page. This all led up to their incredible fundraising event, Cuts for A Cause. This event went from donated salon services to a full fledged street fair featuring food, a live DJ, carnival games, a dunk tank, superhero characters, face painting, auction, and fundraising head shaves. This one event raised a staggering $15,832 because of the stylists, nail techs, companies and people who donated, everyone in attendance, and the hard work of Pink Hearts LV.
Christmas is the holiday that inspired the ladies of Pink Hearts to begin their charity and the season is upon us once again. Please give your time, money, or both to contribute to their 3rd Annual Angel Tree Drive. You can do the shopping yourself or just make a donation and the Pink Hearts will handle it all for you. No donation is too small. Click here to view the flyer, or contact them through their website at pinkheartslv.com. Tell them Jillian’s Army sent you!
Pink Hearts LV has given Jillian and the Moore family so much support and love. They will always be grateful and Pink Hearts is a part of their family as Sienna Moore is an official “junior” member. Pink Hearts LV Squadron, we give you a heartfelt Jillian’s Army SALUTE!!
