NOMINATING A FAMILY

Our mission at Best Christmas Ever (BCE) is to lift up families who have fallen on hard times through no fault of their own by giving them the Best Christmas Ever! We find these families through nominations from their community. A family that would qualify to receive the Best Christmas Ever has unfortunately experienced something this year that would have made this Christmas especially difficult, they have school-aged kids in the home, and they have been nominated by someone else, since this must be a complete surprise!

Nominations are open for the 2018 Christmas season from September 1st through November 15th, 2018.

BEING A CAPTAIN

BCE Captains are movers and shakers in their communities. We need captains who are interested in going "all out" to take what could have been the worst Christmas ever for a family who has fallen on hard times through no fault of their own, and instead give them a surprise Best Christmas Ever!

"BCE has had a life long change in my life. When we bring " A Christmas" to a family and then perform the "Drop" I have noticed a common reaction at every event, it is never about the "Presents", it is always about the "Presence". The hugs and tears happen well before a single gift is opened. The love and compassion that a family feels when they realize they are not alone at this special time of year, is something no amount of money can ever buy. " Merry Christmas, Al Birman.

BECOME A BCE TREE LOCATION

BCE Tree Hosts are pillars in their communities. We need Tree Hosts (also known as BCE Business Sponsors) who are interested in going "all out" to help BCE Captains spread the word about what their chosen BCE family needs and wants! Nothing will stop this dynamic team from doing everything they can to take what could have been the worst Christmas ever for a family who has fallen on hard times through no fault of their own, and instead give them a surprise Best Christmas Ever!

BCE FAMILY PILLAR SPONSORSHIP

BCE has more than doubled each year since the first family was chosen in 2011. In 2017, BCE surprised 100 families with the Best Christmas Ever! With this rapid growth, the BCE team was tasked with recruiting twice as many captains and doubling the amount of support and donations that came in each year. The organization's goals are as follows: 1) to continue to double the number of families that receive the BCE each year, 2) to deepen its partnerships with small, medium, and large organizations to make a life-altering impact on families in their towns and cities, 3) to continue to develop the BCE Family Pillars to create long-term consistency and success for BCE families, and 4) to take BCE to a global level, breaking down borders and bringing hope, love, and peace to as many children and families in as many cities and countries possible.

WHATS HAPPENING AT BCE

 
 

About bce

 

The vision of BCE began with a single dad battling Ulcerative Colitis (UC) in 2010. It was Christmas Eve, and he had just finished wrapping the few gifts he picked up from the convenience store for his son. Life had certainly been difficult for them that year. Hearing a knock at the door, he answered to see three of his relatives with huge bags full of gifts!

This surprise took him back, but blew him away as they shared - They knew this year had been tough and they wanted his family to have the Best Christmas Ever! Don (our co-founder of BCE) realized that what would have likely been their worst Christmas ever, was instead the Best Christmas Ever!

Wanting to pay it forward Don and his lifelong friend Jason rallied a small group of friends together to give a BCE surprise to local family, just as he had received! Ever since, the number of families to receive a BCE has doubled throughout the United States, Canada, and Costa Rica!
