Today’s spotlight is about a wonderful girl Priscilla and her mother, Kristal Leon. To give you a little background about Kristal, she is a military wife, mom, and the creator of a popular lifestyle blog, A Sailors Wife.
With the holidays in full swing, and getting a chance to work with Priscilla, I wanted to take a moment to highlight just how amazingly kind, talented, and good person she is, in hopes to spread kindness and joy. Priscilla has always loved books, ever since she was a baby. Earlier this year she launched her own YouTube channel "Storytime with Priscilla" where she reads books from up and coming authors. She has also worked with Kristal to help review children's books for her blog and social media platforms.
Priscilla has always loved animals so with the money Priscilla earned from reading books she decided to donate $300 of her hard earned money to Magnificent Mutts, a nonprofit no kill shelter. She has also visited adoption events to read to the animals as well.
Priscilla and Kristal have read and reviewed over a $1000 worth of books that they have received from up and coming authors. Priscilla was kind enough to share these books and decided to donate them to Books First Chicago, an organization whose mission is to connect children through sharing a love of reading and putting a library in every under-served Chicago public school that doesn't have one of their own.
As if all of these wonderful acts aren’t enough, Priscilla wanted to do more, so Priscilla with the help of her mother, also will be delivering another set of brand new books, coloring books, toys and stuffed animals valued at another $1000 that were submitted for their holiday gift guide to Children's Lurie Hospital.
Priscilla wants to make Christmas a little brighter for disadvantaged Chicago youth and sick children at Children's Lurie Hospital. She hopes to make a difference in the lives of shelter animals as well.
Priscilla was featured by Chicago Parent this month for their "One of a Kind" segment!
