... Join The Ride

Thank you for expressing interest in being involved this year. For the past three years, we have engaged our community in an event we named, “I Dream Beautiful” which is put on by us, More-Self-Less (MSL). Through this event, we are able to provide an insane Christmas celebration to children in the Grand Rapids area who otherwise may have gone without. Last year we enthusiastically helped out 186 children and their guardians from our community in an incredibly fulfilling and emotionally charged night! We provided a variety of items such as clothes, hats, gloves, haircuts, sleeping bags, Bibles, blankets, gas cards, first aid & cleaning items, etc. oh yea and TOYS!

This year, we have a lofty but attainable goal of 200 children and their guardians, approx. 77 families - to provide the most love filled and community engaged Christmas celebration they have ever experienced!
