Many of you who have set foot in our galleria office over the past 16 years have likely met our beloved medical assistant Nikki Bell.


This past Saturday, November 23rd, the family was headed to the hospital after her daughter was going to have a baby. When they suffered a devastating loss of all their belongings in a fire.

"We went to St. Joseph's Hospital this morning to see if my sister was going to have a baby today or tomorrow," Jordan Malone, a 10-year-old fire victim, said. "So we went to the hospital. We got a phone call that my house was on fire. I lost everything," Nikki Bell Malone, Jordan's mother, said. The family was left devastated. They just had a baby shower for their 17-year-old daughter Whitney Malone. "We had a stroller, playpen, clothes, diapers, all that, and it's all gone now," a teary-eyed Whitney Malone said. Firefighters pulled out charred diapers, strollers and clothes for the unborn child.The family had at least one year worth of supplies for the unborn child. Arson investigators are still trying to figure out the cause of the fire. - Channel 11 KHOU News


Lets help Nikki and her family get back on her feet this Thanksgiving and Christmas. Help us raise $5,000 by December 15th to help this family get back on their feet. They are in need of everything newborn related (diapers, crib, stroller, baby clothes) and everyday items for their home (clothes, sheets, towels, furniture, shoes, kitchen items, etc.). The ages of the children are as follows: Whitney age 17, Jordan age 9, DJ age 16, Victoria age 21.
Donating Items: I have had several inquiries as to how to donate items. If you could please drop them off at our offices that would be great!! The address is 1900 St. James Place, Suite 550. THANK YOU!!


Update: We raised $9,175 by December 2nd! The amount of support and love that has come from the community has been astounding. At nearly 200% of goal, we know we can make it to $10,000!! Help us to continue to spread the word so that the Bell Family can get a fresh start this holiday season!


Update #2: WE did it again! Hooray! The generosity and love displayed on this page shows us just how special Nikki and her family are. I am feeling ambitious this morning... can we make it to $15,000? I think so!
