Brandi gives guardian angel pins to children who lost parents in 9/11

“ She handed out more than 1,000 angel pins to NYC children ”

While eighteen-year-old Brandi, of Sidney, Maine, was going through treatments for cancer, she received many guardian angel pins from friends and family.

The pins boosted her spirits so much that when it came time for her to make her wish, she asked to travel to New York City to give guardian angel pins to children who lost their parents in the September 11th attacks that had occurred the year before.

She handed out more than 1,000 specially designed guardian angel pins to children who lost parents as well as to firefighters and police officers who lost colleagues.

Our chapter has created a giving society in Brandi's honor called “The Circle of Angels,” which recognizes individuals who donate $1,000 or more to Make-A-Wish Maine. Donors receive one of Brandi's angel pins.
