Tiffany and Nathaniel are the founders of Fostering Faith Foundation. We felt a calling from God 3 years ago and have since been blessed to give back to over 100 kids in Davidson county over the holiday seasons. Through it all we kept getting the question "are you going to be doing more throughout the year?" and "keep us in mind for next year." Tiffany felt a calling once again to do more throughout the year and provide aid to the group homes caring for Foster children as well as the placed foster children and the caregivers they service.

 

Our ultimate goal is to bring Fostering Faith Foundations Holiday Wish Lists to Foster Children throughout the whole state of North Carolina. We also provide clothing, assistance with needed items, needed funds, scholarships and more throughout the year; while also providing resources for those interested in fostering and fostering-to-adopt through community outreach and professional support.

Junior Board Members

Spartacus is 5 years old and heading into Kindergarten. Spartacus loves to golf, geocache and building things with Legos. Each year for his birthday and Christmas, Spartacus finds a way to give back to the children in foster care. He has collected and delivered birthday boxes, so that the kids in care will be able to celebrate their birthdays, and know that it's their special day. He has collected letters of encouragement so the children know that they are loved and people in the community care for them. He has also created goodie bags and collected monetary donations to give back to the group homes. This will be Spartacus's 4th year volunteering with the children's holiday wish lists. The thing he most enjoys about helping to fulfill the children's wish lists is being able to stuff each stocking with Christmas treats and knowing the excitement on the children's face's Christmas morning.

Magnolia (Nolie) is 3 years old and in pre-k. Her favorite things are her horsey (her favorite stuffed animal), dollie, stuffed snakes, painting, ice cream and popsicles. She loves to tap dance and geocache with her family and friends.

Magnolia loves being able to get out in communities meeting new people and seeing what their needs are and how she can help. Magnolia's platform is Magnolia’s Foster Friends. Through her platform, she strives to spread love and friendship to foster children throughout North Carolina. She does this by delivering special holiday packages, gifting stuffed animals for cuddles, providing therapy kits for court or other times of struggles, passing on words of encouragement, or collecting donations and/or items that are needed within group homes. After seeing the extra needs and wants from the kids in care that we serve through the Fostering Faith Foundation in granting their Christmas wishes and bigger needs, my platform has been able to serve kids in different ways over the last two years. She also collects books for a unique free little library here in her hometown.

Victoria (Tori) is 14 years old and attends North Davidson Middle School, where she loves to cheer on the Black Knights as a cheerleader and was the manager for the volleyball team. Outside of school, she plays competitive volleyball and keeps herself in shape with her personal trainer on a weekly basis.  When she's not participating in sports, her other passion is giving back to the community.  When she was in the first grade, she created her own non-profit organization, Tori’s Lemon-Aide. She sells lemonade and accepts monetary donations to support her platform, Fighting Childhood Hunger.  This started at 7 years old when she realized that she may have friends that she knows who didn’t know where they would get their next meal and decided she wanted to help.  It started with a conversation with her school principal who allowed her to have a food drive at school.  She now travels around with her stand and has been able to contribute over 6,000 pounds of food to community outreach centers.  Giving back to the community is very important to her and she has been honored to earn 6 Presidential Volunteer Service Awards given by the President of the United States. Her goal is to partner with organizations around the world to bring awareness to childhood hunger and encourage others to give back to their communities to help fight childhood hunger.  Food insecurity is a national problem and she feels that no one should go hungry. She is very excited to partner with Fostering Faith Foundation to provide community outreach to foster children.
