Today is Giving Tuesday! You may ask yourself what is Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday! December 2nd after Black Friday, after Cyber Monday! We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. Together, with a team of influencers and founding partners, we launched a global movement that has engaged over 10,000 organizations worldwide.
As you are wrapping gifts, remember don’t do it on the floor so that you can avoid having back pain. Wrap on a mat standing infront of a counter or table. Wear comfortable shoes , this is advice from Ergonomist Chris Adams.
The important thing is to have Fun!! Sometimes we get a little wrapped up in life and have to take time to enjoy it…
Participate in Giving Tuesday by purchasing an ornament that will benefit premature babies and their families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units.

Today’s spotlight is on Christine MacPhail, Orlando Harpist. Christine began playing the harp at age 6 and has been playing professionally in the Central Florida area for over 25 years. She enjoys playing a variety of music of all styles, from classical to contemporary, and always loves learning new songs and adapting them to the harp. When 27 Miracles interviewed Christine and asked why she wanted to get involved with The Gift of Life,her reply was ” I am honored to be helping Rosie to benefit A Story of Faith and Florida Hospital. The story of her son Kaleb is inspirational and would touch anyone’s heart. Rosie and the 27 Miracles Team are continually giving back to the community and I am privileged to be included at her charitable events.” Christine and her harp bless many in the Central Florida area by playing at weddings, charity events and more…..Her music is very inspiring. When Baby Kaleb was born, Christine made a cd for him that to date he still listens to before bed. The music was soothing to him during those long nights of hearing an oxygen concentrator all day and night. He became so used to Christine’s music that when she played at Kaleb’s baby dedication, he immediately turned his head to Christine’s music.
Today’s Spotlight of the Week is On Galuwi Art. When Rosie Moore of 27 Miracles Approached Gary one of the partners for Galuwi, he knew exactly what to do. We were contacted immediately to design the invitation that you see today for The Gift of Life and the event logo.
A Little bit about this team of creative people:
“GaLuWi Inc. is a custom print & photography studio fused with graphic art & design. We are unique and passionate about everything we do, in business and in life.

When we asked Galuwi Art why they wanted to work with 27 Miracles and The Gift of Life event that will benefit Florida Hospital for Children’s NICU department, they said :
“When GaLuWi Inc. heard about the challenges that Rosie had in pulling together resources to tell her story of faith, we were touched and decided to help in some small way using our graphic abilities. Community involvement is important to us and we only hope that Rosie’s efforts will inspire others to contribute in any way they possibly can. We all are busy with our daily lives but it is important to remember those that are in need and the struggles and challenges others may face. Bless the children and families that have these challenges with a small miracle of your own today. “Hugs to all” Sincerely GaLuWi Inc. ”
27 Miracles wants to recognize Andres Roque of Roque Productions. Andres and his team are no strangers to working and giving back to the community. That is in fact how Rosie Moore of 27 Miracles met Andres. She was in need of vendors to work at the 27 Miracles Christmas Extravaganza in downtown Winter Garden. Rosie did not know Andres but they met at a Bridal Show. When Rosie emailed vendors for assistance in this event, Andres was the first to say, I will help. This event was to raise funds and honor the Brides Against Breast Cancer, Toys for Tots and the Boys and Girls Club of Winter Garden. With over 400 plus people attending the event, the night was a success on that cold December 2, 2010 weeknight.
After that Roque Productions has worked with 27 Miracles on various other community events, weddings and Quinces. 27 Miracles’ clients are always happy with the stellar work that they perform.
When we asked Andres why do you do what you do for the community, his reply “If you have the opportunity to get involved with The Gift of Life event, I really encourage you to do so. Over the past 4 years, we have worked with Rosie and the 27 Miracles team on numerous events for great causes. They truly have their community’s best interest at heart and their drive to help others is admirable. We are all called to help our neighbor and the events put together by 27 Miracles have become a great way for us to do so. “
Roque Productions is in the business of “Making It Happen” for their clients. Since the beginning, CEO Andrés Roque, made it a point for his clients to feel valued and this carries through the company. From the planning process to the post event wrap-up, you’ll understand that they are driven to go beyond. Sure, there are lots of companies that provide similar services, but the difference in how they provide these services can only be experienced.
