Our Mission: To fill in the gaps, grant wishes, and meet the non-medical needs of children that are seriously ill, have special needs, or are in the midst of a medical crisis.
The Sweet Julia Grace Foundation (SJGF), based out of Northern Virginia, is a non-profit, all volunteer organization, INSPIRED by, and in honor of Julia Grace Knight. Julia lived 12 beautiful years inspiring everyone who knew her, read about her, and loved her. Despite the storms she faced because of a rare genetic disease called I-cell, Julia knew how to “Dance In The Rain.” She lived in the moment, made life SWEET, and filled hearts with JOY…just by being her.
We call the children we bless through SJGF, ‘Raindancers’, because despite the storms they face every day, they have learned to “Dance in the Rain” just like Julia Grace always did. On the day that we present the gifts to our “Raindancer” we surprise them, their siblings and family with a specially-designed CELEBRATION that brings a whole lot of happy, creates special memories they will always cherish, and lets the family know…they are loved.
