The Kahlen’s Love Drop!

Now with 70% more kids, AND a special guest!

We did it, guys – Love Drop #4 was brilliant, and it’s mostly thanks to YOU! We were so touched this month by the strength of the Kahlen family’s love for one another, and we wanted to help give them some ways to hang out together and build some amazing memories without having to worry about cost, time and logistics.

Take a peek at the video to see how the entire team came together to make this happen for them. :)

Also watch for a cameo from Adam Baker and family, and more kids than we’ve ever had at a Love Drop before – we had so much fun this month, and hope you’ll join us for the next one.

(If you’re not a member of our team yet, it’s easy to join!)
