The third annual Forget-Me-Not-Fairy Giving Festival was held June 14 to “remember the birthday of our compassionate giving little fairy India Phillips.” India, who lived in Solana Beach, died at age 4 from Group A Strep. Her kidneys were donated to a woman in San Diego.

To honor India and raise awareness of organ donation, the Phillips family created a foundation in her name. Through the India Phillips Foundation, her family, friends and supporters have donated gifts and hosted birthday parties for children at a local homeless shelter, as well as provided wheelchairs to children and adults in the U.S. and abroad.

The June 14 event featured the movie “Frozen” theme. The event had an initial goal of collecting 50 Birthday Boxes to give to homeless children and more than 150 boxes were collected. More than $1,200 was raised from a raffle to go towards wheelchairs for disabled children in Mexico. For more information about the India Phillips Foundation, visit indiaphillips.com.
