Jody gifts magical keepsakes filled with precious memories to families of children with critical illnesses; She’s ridiculously awesome!

Jody founded Crops of Luv (COL), a non-profit dedicated to creating scrapbooks for families with children facing critical illnesses and preserving memories and dreams because a “life documented is a life remembered.”

From the COL website, their charitable mission started “in 2007 when a little girl went on a Wish trip to Disneyland to have a tea party with a princess. A group of gals created a one-of-a-kind scrapbook for her to remember her trip. The founders realized there was no group to make scrapbooks for other kids after their Wish trips, and Crops of Luv was born.”⁠

Jody’s sister Lisa nominated her, saying, “Jody not only works a full-time job, but she started Crops of Luv and runs it out of her home.” COL and the core 30-40 volunteers were making about 300 albums a year and shipping them all over the world before the pandemic. Today, the album-making and album-gifting are ramping back up again!

Recognizing the joy these keepsakes bring to the families, Jody and the COL volunteers strive to give all kids who have been granted a Wish trip a scrapbook to preserve their memories.

What an extraordinary, everlasting gift!
