Youth Advocate Wins $5,000 From Trivia Game App, Will Help Fund Her Family’s Forever Home in Florida
Imagine this: you’re busy running a non-profit that advocates for youth and at-risk adults, and then you find yourself becoming a family of 4 to 7 overnight…
Brooke Wheeldon-Reece finds herself reflecting on her blessings despite her challenges… “I’ve been really fortunate this past year. I run a non-profit organization called The SPARK Initiative that mentors youth, sex trafficking survivors, and adults in the criminal justice system. We never stopped working, if anything we were needed this year more than ever. However, this year taught me to be really thankful for everything I have and appreciate my life and family. I truly am a blessed human being.”
Perhaps this Free $5,000 Award came at just the right time. Thinking her potential win may just be fantasy, she finally got to prove her family wrong. A few days before her big win, “I put my phone down by my 16-year-old and she saw I was playing Givling. She said, “Mom, you’re really still playing Givling and haven’t won?” I said, “Girl, you watch, I’m gonna win one day.” I swear I spoke this win into existence – lol! I was so nervous and excited the whole night – I barely slept! When I saw I won, I ran into my 16-year-old’s room and woke her up. “I told you so” never felt so good!”
“I cant tell you how much this means to me and my family. Four years ago, my niece and two nephews came to live with us, and in 2019 we officially adopted them. We went from a family of four to seven – overnight – and have been living in a small townhouse ever since. Just a few months ago, we began building our forever home, so this couldn’t have come at a better time!”
“The biggest obstacle has also been my biggest blessing. Learning to be a family of seven with little notice was the most challenging thing I’ve ever gone through. Now, four years later, I cant imagine my life any other way. All of my kids have been my most influential teachers in my life.”
“I started playing Givling because I had over $40K in student loans and knew we could never move with that kind of bill over our heads. I’ve since cut that loan in half and it feels a little more manageable. But this $ is really going to help with our down payment on our new house.”
Brooke is a proud resident of Tampa Bay, Florida, “Better known as CHAMPA BAY! This past year we won the Superbowl, the Stanley cup, and went to the World Series. Even our soccer team won the championships!”
“THANK YOU, GIVLING!!! Just keep spinning BEARS – it really is that simple!”
Congrats again, Brooke, and thanks for being a #ForceForGood!
