Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars, to change the world.  ~~ Harriet Tubman


College student Erica Rhodes contacted We Survive wanting to be part of a team that inspires Hopes and Dreams.  She wrote, “I am interested in an opportunity to be a part of helping change the lives of impoverished children.”  When we talked she loved the idea LIGHTFEST Re-Ignited and shining a Light of Hope around the world while bringing awareness to poverty, hunger and homelessness.  Erica will be part of a LIGHTFEST event in March 2018


In 2012 Erica started an organization called Gifts for Angels, with the purpose to collect toys and funds for children at Norton Children’s Hospital in memory of her brother who spent his life in the NICU. Erica says, “I wanted to give back to the hospital who took such great care of my family during our time with my brother Jacobi Hager.”


Erica founded Gifts for Angels, “because I know how it feels to sit in the hospital with a family member not knowing what tomorrow will bring, I wanted to brighten the days of the children and their families during their rough times”.
