ABOUT: The Twelve Days of Christmas, Inc. is a national 501(c)(3) organization, committed to sharing our blessings with others through collective effort, charitable activities, and community involvement. The organization was founded in 1999 when 12 generous friends decided to ring in the new millennium by sharing their many blessings with underprivileged families. The co-founders, a mother-daughter team, Gayla Gardner and Donya Gardner Barrett, invited some of their close friends to join them in the gift of giving. Since then, the organization has expanded to chapters in Houston and Beaumont, TX; Chicago, IL; Oakland, CA; New York City and the Washington, DC Metro Chapter. The DC Metro Chapter "adopts" needy families in DC, Maryland and Virginia and provides them with back to school necessities and fulfills their Christmas wish lists. The DC Metro Chapter is made up of 36 professional African-American women dedicated to service and supporting the community.
