IN12DAYS DELIVERS “12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS” TO underprivileged STUDENTS AT LAS VEGAS AND HENDERSON SCHOOLS

Two Weeks of Surprise Gifts Bring Hope and Relief to Four Students and Their Families

This holiday season, non-profit organization In12Days will bring 12 days of inspiring gifts to rekindle joy and hope in the hearts of four underprivileged students and their families. Gifts such as scholarships, family vacations and private concerts will pop out of unexpected places for these deserving children beginning Dec. 6.

“Having been through a difficult time during the holidays after losing my husband, I was fortunate enough to have friends who anonymously gave me 12 days of thoughtful gifts that lifted my family’s spirit,” said Suzanne Lea, founder of In12Days. “Not only are we aiming to help students and families in need, we also want to bring holiday joy and impactful gifts that inspire hope and happiness.”

Following a heartwarming 2011 that benefited five families and organizations, 2012 will focus on children’s educational needs across Las Vegas, Henderson and Boulder City. Recipients of this year’s gifts are four future students of DJ’s Community Christian Academy in Henderson, NV, The Alexander Dawson School at Rainbow Mountain, Mountain View Christian School and Edward W. Clark High School in Las Vegas, NV.

About In12Days
In the spring of 2008, founder Suzanne Lea’s husband Bryan died suddenly of a heart attack. Nine months after his passing, Lea and her sons received the gift of “12 Days of Christmas,” based on the popular holiday song, from anonymous church friends, moving the family from devastation to a euphoria so profound that it changed their lives forever. To pay it forward, the Leas created In12Days to share the joy they felt and deliver two weeks of life-changing gifts to those in need of inspiration. The organization seeks to rekindle hope in the hearts of those who are struggling at any time of year, but especially those suffering during the holiday season.
