THE HEART

behind the bacon

Niki Warms The Cold

Niki Warms the Cold is a charity born in memory of Cranfills Gap native Niki Carlson shortly after her unexpected death. Niki dreamed of keeping coats and blankets in her car to hand out to folks in need. This dream became reality as the seed Niki planted with her family began to grow. Niki Warms the Cold distributes coats and blankets to those in need across the state of Texas. Each year, a portion of Bacon Bash Texas proceeds are donated to Niki Warms the Cold to help fund the purchase of additional coats and blankets.  Bacon Bash also hosts a coat and blanket drive each October at Bacon Bash Texas.

Children with Type 1 Diabetes

Niki’s cousin, Lexie Finstad, and Cranfills Gap native, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. She was a nine year camper at a specialized diabetes camp in North Texas. The camp’s main focus was to educate children on their illness and to help instill healthy habits in campers, while connecting them with other children with diabetes. These specialized camps can make a huge impact in the life of a child with Type 1 Diabetes! In 2015, Bacon Bash Texas started a scholarship fund to send children with Type 1 Diabetes to specialized diabetes camps. Scholarships will be fully funded by Bacon Bash Texas proceeds. Bacon Bash Texas also started a scholarship fund to provide financial assistance to children to receive a Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitoring System with event proceeds. This system allows remote monitoring of a Type 1 Diabetes patient’s glucose levels and alerts a parent when the child’s levels become dangerous.
