Our Impact

Exceeding The Needs Of Our Community

Thanks to the community and the support of all our generous volunteers, we are able to make a lasting IMPACT, shining a light and providing compassion and encouragement to locals in our community by being a ray of HOPE to those overwhelmed by darkness.

Ellie’s courageous battle with pediatric cancer inspired thousands to come together and support locals in crisis which started a chain of events that no one could have predicted and generated many more inspiring journeys.  

In 2013, over 2,000 people from all over the world came together to light the night for Princess Ellie including individuals from Australia, Mexico, and Costa Rica. In 10 years, we have helped over 40,000 people.

Regardless of how many lives Ellie's Elves has touched, our remarkeable volunteers would be the first to tell you -
