Helping children have an extraordinary Christmas!

Well hey there and thanks for coming to my very first GoFundMe page!

My name is Dana Bertotti. For the past seven years, I "adopt" as many children as I can in the Philadelphia area and buy as many gifts on their Christmas list as possible. I do this through an organization called Volunteers of America (

Last year, we raised $1,300 and changed Christmas morning for 5 caretakers and 10 children. Every year, I strive to exceed my goals from the year before.

Every dollar means so much to me. Every penny goes to the gifts. Every cent goes to giving these children the holiday they deserve.

I also follow up with a recap and a thank you so you can see what your generous donation has accomplished.

The deadline for donations is November 1st... this gives me enough time to adopt, shop and deliver the goods.

Thank you for helping me achieve my 2022 goal! I am so grateful.
