Seven Gifts of Kindness was started by David and Denise in 2011. During her
19 ½ year battle with brain cancer, they donated gift boxes to family, friends, and others that needed encouragement through a tough time.
On September 29, 2015, Denise was called home. After she passed, David found himself needing some help and went to an Alzheimer’s Caregivers support group. There he found some of the most dedicated caregivers who give tirelessly every day, all day. This group, Share the Care, Inc. in Orlando Florida, helped him, and he wanted to recognize their challenges and achievements.
In 2016, David and I began to make plans to move SGOK forward to continue their mission to “Share Kindness….One Gift at a Time”. In January of 2017 we
“took SGOK off the shelf” and set up a booth at our first local festival.
From our inception, one of our goals was to partner with local treatment facilities and caregiver organizations to better distribute our donations.
In February of 2017, we partnered with Florida Cancer Specialists &
Research Institute and Share the Care, Inc., and have been donating monthly gift boxes to them ever since. In June of 2023, we partnered with Jessie's Place, the Citrus County Children's Advocacy Center, and starting gift bag donations for the kids.
On June 6, 2022, David's journey here came to an end. In their memory,
I started 7 Gifts of Kindness to continue to bring awareness to Cancer Warriors and Caregivers. I hope you will join me in continuing our mission of
Spreading Kindness...One Gift at a Time.
