Project Believe began creating Christmas Magic in 2007, for just 10 kids. We now deliver gifts to over 200 youth, at seven facilities in two states. These are young people who have been orphaned through mental, emotional, and behavioral challenges. Most are foster children without foster families who reside at hospitals, group homes, and treatment centers with little outside support and very few personal belongings. It is our mission to remind them they are not alone by providing the personal comforts of home.

Since 2011, Project Believe has been showering our kids with Valentines, reminding them they are loved and not alone.

Get out your construction paper, scissors, glue, and glitter and get creative while you give back. Host a decorating party. Short on time and creativity? Pick up a box at the store and sign them. It takes thousands of Valentines, so each one matters.

All Valentines can be sent to or dropped off at:

In 2010, Doris Kelley, affectionately known as “Granny”, crocheted scarves for every child on one hospital unit. The day after Christmas 2010, she started crocheting scarves and did not stop until just before Christmas 2011, to be sure every child in the entire hospital had their own scarf. Not only had she given each child a scarf – she had given them each the love of a Granny. We believe every kid deserves a Granny!

We are honored to carry on Granny’s legacy by fulfilling the promise to provide every child with a handmade scarf and hat at Christmas.

Be part of the legacy. Be part of the magic. We need:
– Crocheted or Knit Scarves
– Crocheted or Knit Hats

All items can be dropped off during regular business hours at the Tipp City Public Library, 11 E. Main Street, or mailed to P.O. Box 191, Tipp City, OH 45371.
