Here at Mia and Mackie in the Mirror, we've decided to donate our products for good causes. It all started with my niece's Abigail and Rebecca who wanted to make a difference it others lives and it has now evolved into helping a various number of charities. This page will be dedicated to the groups of family's and various charities, in which we have donated our products to it will also include links so that if you feel compelled to donate ,you can make a difference too.
How it all started...
My nieces Abigail and Rebecca suffer from Epilepsy, and recently decided they wanted to start a charity to help other children in need. After discussing the difficulties and time that it takes to run a charity with their parents, they decided to explore other options. I stepped in with an idea for them to hand paint bottle caps that could be used to create necklaces. The jewlery could then be sold to benefit a charity of their choice. As a team we decided to donate our proceeds to the Danny Did Foundation. Check out our story, we made front page of the Vernon Hills pioneer press.
Founded by Chicagoans Mike and Mariann Stanton in January 2012 after their four-year old son Danny died from a seizure while he was sleeping, the Danny Did Foundation (DDF) is dedicated in it's mission to prevent deaths caused by seizures.
Please check out the Danny Did Foundation or please like them on Facebook.

Baby Mckenna was just two months old when her mom started to notice some unusual symptoms. It took doctors almost seven months to diagnose sweet Mckenna with SMA, Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 1. Mia and Mackie in the Mirror has not only donated items to an upcoming auction, but also sent plenty of clips and bows to decorate Mckenna's cute little head. Please help this family as they fight this battle. Any donation would be greatly appreciated, since Mckenna's mom, Amanda has chosen to be at home with her sweet baby girl.
