  • About

    The Sweet Julia Grace Foundation (SJGF), based out of Bristow, VA, is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization INSPIRED by & in honor of Julia Grace Knight, who passed away in November 2013 from complications related to a rare disease called I-cell. Julia was born in WV & lived 12 beautiful years inspiring everyone who knew her, read about her, & loved her. SJGF strives to support families whose children are facing more than most do their entire life. These amazing children learn to overcome, find joy, share their precious smiles with the world, and “dance in the rain”—all while in the midst of very difficult storms. The simple joys of childhood are often put aside & replaced with hospital visits, surgeries, clinics, therapy, & adapted equipment to meet their special needs—yet they remain brave, inspiring, and resilient in the face of it all. The children served through SJGF are lovingly given the name “RAINDANCERS,” because, just like Julia Grace, they are not waiting for the storms to pass before they “dance in the rain.” The Sweet Julia Grace Foundation’s mission: To fill in the gaps, grant wishes, & meet non-medical needs of children who are seriously ill, have special needs, or in a medical crisis. We strive to bring SJGF Raindancers all the JOY we possibly can by providing them with gifts that bring comfort, happiness & often times dramatically improve & change their lives. Gifts are also given to siblings & parents & provisions are often made to help with day-to-day expenses like gas, groceries, utilities & mortgages. All money raised in WV for SJGF stays in WV!
