Former “Duck Dynasty” star Missy Robertson has a passion for helping those who are in need. She’s provided assistance for women freed from human trafficking and prison, helped children and families in need, and devoted a lot of time to volunteering for charities.
Robertson recently made an appearance on “The Billy Hallowell Podcast” where she spoke about the powerful work she and hubby Jase are doing through their own charity the Mia Moo Fund, an organization founded in 2014 with the mission to “assure that each and every child has a warm and bright smile.”
The Robertsons’ daughter Mia, 15, was born with a cleft lip and palate, and now they are trying to assist other families who face the same journey. The goal is to help these mothers and fathers navigate the complexities and pitfalls that often accompany these complex birth defects.
“One of the functions of the Mia Moo Fund is to spread awareness of the cleft lip and palate journey,” she said. “The other one is to help with medical funds for the parents and the families living right here in America.”take our poll - story continues below
So far, the Robertsons have helped 59 families, with over $275,000 in assistance.
At the end of October, Missy and Jase hosted an event at a plantation they recently purchased — an effort aimed at spending quality time with some of the families who have been assisted through the Mia Moo Foundation.
“We invited all of the families that we had helped … 22 families came,” she said. “And they came and we were able to meet them, we were able to spend time with them … and we just had what we called the ‘Mia Moo Fun Day.'”
With food, family time, games and discussion, Robertson said she’s hoping to make the event an annual happening.
This is what it looks like to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ, working to improve the world while sharing love, faith, and hope.
The Robertson’s are such a blessing to this country and to the people who know them. We’d all be better off if we’d learn from their example and got active in the calling God has given us to love our neighbors.
