Miracle Express is solely focused on providing families experiencing life's toughest challenges with faith in humanity and hope for the future by delivering gifts to their family on Christmas morning - eventually all throughout the year - a time that creates added stress for the most vulnerable in our communities.



Founded in 2015 by Michael Doyle & Sean Sternberg of MRD Productions, Miracle Express was initially created to find families experiencing difficult times and deliver to them a Miracle on Christmas morning – gifts on their family’s doorstep. Our mission is a personal one. Michael and his family received help from the community following a number of setbacks during childhood, including a brother with kidney disease and a sister with cancer.  Through the generosity he received, Michael knew that he had to find a way to pay it forward.  

Starting with only a few thousand dollars and two families, MRD Productions captured the project start to finish – including fundraising, shopping for the families, giftwrapping and finally the big surprise delivery of the gifts. Through the process, the team realized that these family’s stories could touch many lives by instilling a belief in the power of community and more than that, hope for the future.  But more than helping only a few families, Michael realized that sharing the stories of these families and capturing the real-time authenticity of their reactions on Christmas morning could help mobilize whole communities and organizations to help even more families in need.

As Miracle Express, Inc. enters its four year, (first) year as a corporation organized under section 402 of the NY State Not-For-Profit Corporation Law. The corporations application for exempt status was approved for 501c of the Internal Revenue Code on August 27, 2017. Miracle Express will be working to help even more family’s than we have previously. It’s the incredible support of the community and some early supporters, such as Pastor Isaac Friedel, Founder of the Jersey Shore Dream Center, Surf Taco, Diane Turton, Macaroon Shop, Federicos, Lenny's Deli, Colfax Pharmacy, Photo Center, Oriana LaMarca Designs, Stone & Tile Depot, Perricone Family, Saint Catherine School, Pizzo & Pizzo , Inc., IPLAY America, Atlantic Club, A-General Plumbing, Shore Point Distributing, Nature's Corner, rook, Steel Mountain Fabricators, McGregors Fitness & Training Center, Davison Eastman Munoz Lederman & Paone P.A., WHIP- Wall Helps It's People, Glendola Firehouse,  that have helped us create the impact we have seen to date. This year we intend on delivering miracles to ten families doorsteps and believe with your help, together we can be the change we want to see in this world.
