A. On average you should expect to spend around $90 to $125 on your Angel tree child this christmas. Depending on the age of the angel, the amount may be more or less. For example: Infants and very young children can be less. With older teenage boys you can expect to pay a few dollars more (size 12 shoes tend to be a little higher priced than other shoes for example).
A. Sure. We encourage folks to sponsor multiple Angels. When you sign up for the 5K Fun Run/Walk, it will ask how many Angels you would like to sponsor. Just select from one to five angels. If you want to sponsor more than 5 angels, please go to our Comments and Suggestions form and send us a note detailing your interest in sponsoring more than 5 angels (For example, you are representing a large group/organization that wants to sponsor more than 5 angels). Once you send in your request, a representative of Miles for Merry Miracles will be in contact with you ASAP to work out the details.

A. We would love to have your help. We need all kinds of people to help in a whole host of areas throughout the year. This is truly a team effort. Needs range from helping with the triple crown of service events (5K Fun Run/Walk, Shopping Day, Christmas Celebratation) to the behind the scenes efforts. Areas of need include Public Relations, Administrative, Information Technology, Event planning, Coordinating of volunteer efforts, Phone based coordinations, Working with Sponsors, etc.
If you are interested in joining the Miles for Merry Miracles team, please visit the volunteer section of our website at www.m4mm.org/volunteer to sign up or go to our Comments and Suggestions form and let us know that you are interested and how we can contact you best. A representative of Miles for Merry Miracles will be in touch with you ASAP to find an area where you can contribute.
A. Sure. For example a family or group might want to sponsor one angel to allow their group to feel the spirit of giving and love this Christmas. Sponsoring a single Angel as a group can help spread the cost around so more people can experience this awesome opportunity to give. Just go to our 5K Fun Run/Walk Registration form and sign up a member of your group. For each angel that is sponsored we will have one runner packet and t-shirt. The group can decide how they want to share these items. After all registered runners have received runner benefits, snacks and stuff, then any left overs will be made available. We will have any extra shirts available for purchase as well.
As for the shopping for the angel, that is where a group can really have some fun. Everyone is welcome to come out on the shopping day event and participate. The More the Merrier we always say! So get the entire group involved. It will really be a blast and bring the group so much closer together this holiday season.
Q. I am trying to find a phone number or email address to talk to someone within Miles for Merry Miracles. I cannot find one on this web site. How do I contact someone within Miles for Merry Miracles?
A. We, the Miles for Merry Miracles Team, all are 100% volunteers on this project... there is not one paid position within Miles for Merry Miracles. We all do this because we are passionate about helping people and providing hope for our future generation through the true meaning of christmas. Many of us have full time jobs and families. Many are students (Elementary, Middle School, High School, College) and need to stay focused on their academics. We don't typically publicize our phone numbers because in addition to trying to serve in the m4mm program, we have these other responsibilities in our lives and it's easy to get distracted from our most important responsibilities. So we rely on technology to help us balance all these opportunities. Please use our Comments and Suggestions form to ask us a question, leave us a comment, or send us a suggestion of how we can improve on Miles for Merry Miracles. A representative of Miles for Merry Miracles will be in touch with you ASAP. Thanks for understanding and helping us to bring joy, hope, and peace to many children this Christmas season.
