Welcome to Give4Kayleigh!

Thank you for thinking about helping the Freeman family.

As you know, Kayleigh Freeman has spent over 8 months in the NICU due to being born 3 months prematurely. This has caused quite a financial strain on the family, and we'd just like to be able to give back and ease their load a bit. Please find it in your heart to help this family as much as you can. And there's good news for you, too!

For every $10 you donate, you will be entered into a giveaway for one of FIVE AWESOME packages. You get to choose which package(s) you'd like to be entered for. You get to decide how much you'd like to put on each package. And for some of the items, you get to have a hand in picking out the details to customize them the way YOU want them.

But wait, check this out!

If you donate $30, you will receive 1 extra entry!
If you donate $50, you will receive 2 extra entries!
If you donate $80, you will receive 3 extra entries!
If you donate $100, you will receive 4 extra entries!

How cool is that? You get to do a good deed AND get rewarded for it. God is Good!

To donate, please click the button on the upper right of this page. When donating, don't forget to put what package(s) you'd like to be entered for in the message section. Make sure that you list a package for every $10, and keep in mind your extra entries!

For example, if I want to donate $30, I could put something like this in the message section:
1-Package A
1-Package B
2-Package C (this would count as two entries--and I've counted my extra here)

Happy donating! And THANK YOU on behalf of the Freeman family. Don't forget to continue the journey with Kayleigh at!
