June’s Feelgood Tap is Dibs on the Blonde. The recipient of this month’s money is Team Ellie. This is a charity bicycle team that is raising money to support the Make-A-Wish® Michigan Foundation. They will be participating in a 3-day and 300 mile bike ride called Wish-A-Mile® Bicycle Tour at the end of July.
Team Ellie was formed in honor of a little girl named Ellie who is from Metro Detroit. Ellie was diagnosed in 2014 with Ewing’s Sarcoma when she was only 3 years old. She is now 7 years old and is in remission. She was granted a wish from the Make-A-Wish® Michigan Foundation and was able to go to Disney Land with her family. The team was formed shortly after and they’ve had the honor of riding for 8 additional Wish Hero children since. On average every wish costs $8,000. Not all Make-A-Wish® recipients are as lucky as Ellie, so their goal is to reach as many children and families who are battling life threatening illnesses as possible.

Santa Shop is put on by Hospitality House early in December each year. It’s a major undertaking to help more than 600 children have a wonderful holiday.
Santa Shop provides a free shopping experience for clients who go with an elf escort from puzzle table to book table to clothing table to game table and so on as they select gifts for their children. A wrapping station is provided, Santa visits, craft areas are arrange to keep children occupied as parents shop and a dancing dreidle has been known to be seen.
Elves know how much is available and how many children need a visit from Santa and effectively lead families to select the right number of gifts so everyone’s need is met while making sure there are few unclaimed gifts.
In addition, a supply of gifts are available for children to select to have wrapped and give their parents. Stuffed stockings are available for everyone.
