Here is a sampling of the wonderful things people are saying about Katie and the way she and her ministry  have touched their lives:

You’re an amazing young lady!  I was so touched when I got the opportunity to hear the fabulous things you have done for Levine’s sick children.  I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making me realize that I need to do more.  God bless you for your work.  -Jeannine W.  Waterford, NY

Thanks again for taking care of Squeaks and Tigger while we were on vacation.  -Trevor & Ashley T.  Weddington, NC

I heard your interview on the radio, and you touched my heart.  What you are doing to help other children (and Santa) is so kind.  I pray God helps you meet your goal this year and blesses you in all you do.  -Mark & Tari C.  Huntersville, NC

You are an inspiration to us all!  Merry Christmas to you and your family.  -Buddy P.  Lancaster, SC

Thank you for allowing me to write about you for “Highlights for Children”.  Enclosed is a check to help you buy presents for the sick kids this holiday season.  I will continue to follow your ministry through the website.  You are a very special young lady.  -Shannon H.  Tampa Bay, FL

Just wanted to let you and Liz know how much we appreciated your lovely daughter’s letter of appreciation. As I’ve told Liz, she is one special young lady and I know God has more in store for her as grows older. Please wish her well in her continued efforts to help make Christmas special for her kids. She’s already made mine special!  -Steve D.  Concord, NC

I just read your story and I think you and your family are fabulous.  Thank you for helping others and for inspiring me to help others more, too.  I will send you a check in the near future.  I can’t wait to share your kind-hearted story with my own 3 children.  We will follow your good lead and continue with even more charitable acts.  -Suzanne S.  Charlotte, NC

I heard about your wonderful organization from my friend Dana, who had a booth next to you recently.  I would like to volunteer myself and my (then) 6 year-old daughter Emma to help out this December with whatever you might need.  We would love to make a donation, but we would also really love to participate in wrapping gifts, shopping, delivering, etc.  I have a minivan, which we can load full!  I am so impressed by you and all that you are doing to help children in Charlotte!  -Ashley T.  Charlotte. NC

I read your stories and I want to tell you how proud I am of you.  You are so sweet and I am sure the kids really enjoy your being so nice.  Keep up the good work.  -Marsha M.  Dublin, OH

We met in the Apple store yesterday and I wanted to thank you again, personally. You have brought tears of joy to many people and truly made my day a joyous one. If you have an email list, please add me to your list. I want to stay informed of all the wonderful things you are doing. I have already book-marked your web page and cannot wait for new updates.  Have a very wonderful holiday.  -Noelle D.  Charlotte, NC

I just read your story in the Greensboro “News and Record”.  What a great story and what an amazing little girl!  The Lord will bless you in so many ways.  -Bobby A.  Greensboro, NC

Thank you Katie for the special love you have for others. You are truly a blessing.  -Jill D.  Ft. Mill, SC

Katie’s story really touched my heart when I heard her speak on the radio today.  I am an art teacher and have recently found out one of my students has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.  He is only 5 and they found out Monday, December 8th.  He was there [at Levine Children's Hospital] this week for chemo but I think he is now home.  My husband and I are also cancer survivors.  I was 4 and he was 16 when we had cancer.  We met at Camp Care a camp for cancer kids.  In fact we were both treated at CMC.  I applaud Katie and her efforts to bring love and kindness to the children at the Levine Children’s Hospital.  Merry Christmas.  -Nikki D.  Marshville, NC

I have never met you but feel like I know you.  Your dad sent me pictures from your work last year.  You are a very special little girl.  Even though we have never met, I am very happy to be able to see the job you are doing.  I have printed out the contribution form and will get it in the mail with my donation as soon as possible.  I am sure you will do well and be able to buy a lot of fun things for the kids.  You are a special person.  I look forward to reading the wonderful results for this Christmas.  -Lori K.  West Warren, MA

I just wanted to let you know that I think this is a wonderful thing you are doing.  My child has Down syndrome, and we spent Christmas 2006 (his first Christmas) in the hospital, not knowing if he was going to make it.  He had bacterial pneumonia in both lungs and a pneumococcal infection in his blood.  There was an older couple who came around to all occupied rooms on the peds floor and gave each child a toy, gave moms and dads a break or someone to talk to, and spread some Christmas cheer.  It made me feel so loved that a stranger cared about my child and the fact that we were stuck in a hospital for Christmas.  I will be making a donation to your cause because it touches my heart.  -Heather M.  Rock Hill, SC
