Traveling as the co-chapter leader of a medical mission organization in Nicaragua, Maddie learned that gifting her gifts not only impacted the recipient’s life, but also hers. As Miss America, Maddie will promote volunteerism on a national platform to build a stronger generation of serving individuals. She has reached out to local Children’s Miracle Network hospitals to compile a national database of approved patient’s stories that will be brought into schools nationwide. These unique stories will be presented as they collaborate to design a “Gifting Game Plan.” This unifying effort will have an unfathomable outcome that will inspire youth to “gift their gift.”
