The Make A Difference Foundation

The Make a Difference Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides opportunities for the disadvantaged of all ages with a focus on educating the youth about giving back. We assist those in need in our community whether it is in our backyard or across the globe. The Make a Difference Foundation was formed to fill a need both locally and nationally. Since the beginning, our foundation has granted scholarships for college, provided travel for athletes, shoes for orphans, holiday gifts, clothing and food for the homeless.

Give Kids the World

What a wonderful opportunity we had to perform at this amazing place. Give Kids the World is a 70 acre resort for children with life threatening illnesses to experience a vacation at no cost to their families. It was complete with their own movie theater, carousel, water park and restaurant. One of my favorite parts of the village was the snow that shot out on the children as they stood outside of Santas Village.

Our dancers were terrific and reblocked all of their numbers right before they performed on a very tiny stage.  We also had several encores as kids kept coming and wanting the dancers to keep performing. Patti Wiley opened the show by speaking to the families about how her own family were guests at the village when Kelly was four years old and fighting a battle with cancer. She was so encouraging to the parents in the audience.  It was a blessing for everyone.
The village has a beautiful walk way with paver tiles that have names engraved on them. We will be purchasing a tile to say Temecula Dance Company so we can forever be a part of this truly magical place. I do hope you all go on line and learn more about this organization at www.gktw.org.

  • Helping the Homeless

    TDC families and friends hit the streets once per month with 200 food & goodie bags, blankets and jackets.  They distribute food and clothing to assist those in need who are currently living on the streets. We have made many new friends of all ages and have had the privilege to serve some very wonderful people.  There have been many heart warming experiences as we visit with those who are in need.

  • Giving to Others at Christmas

    The TDC and SCEGA Gymnastics families joined forces to provide new toys, clothes and warm winter jackets for children during the holidays. Thanks to all who helped make it a very special Christmas for these children.

  • Camp Beyond Scars

    Kylie and Dilyn traveled up the mountain to Big Bear and made balloon hats and taught hip hop to children ages 5 to 18 who were attending a winter camp for burn survivors. Thanks to our wonderful TDC families who provided over 100 pairs of mittens and “happy” notes for the campers. The campers loved them!

  • Revolve Tour

    Many TDC gals spent the weekend attending the REVOLVE Tour held at the Pond/Honda Center in Anaheim. The REVOLVE TOUR is a non-denominational Christian Conference for young women ages 12-20. It was a fantastic time of music, dramatizations, real life stories and prayer. We were thrilled to be entertained by such amazing Christian performers as Natalie Grant who was the Dove Awards Female Vocalist of the Year, the band Hawk Nelson, Group1 Crew who won the Dove Award for Hip Hop Album of the year and also Kystal Meyers. The REVOLVE TOUR was a blessing to all.
