My name is Elena Magdaleno, Owner/Graphic Artist of Kaila Designs, community member of the 31st Ward, and most importantly mom of 2 wonderful children. My daughter is currently a Junior in High School and my son a 7th grader. I've been involved with the Falconer Elementary Local School council for 6 years, and sitting as chairperson for the past 4.

My commitment to my children and other children is ... my message to them is that although you have been born to certain situations, you do not have to stay there and you are not alone, EVER!

I have been part of my community for well over 10 years now, and I am a member of our local school council and also part of our chicago police department community policing program.

My hope is that I can spread enough love to be shared over and over.

We have created and will continue to create paraphernalia and gift items with custom designs promoting love of self, community, family, culture, the arts, and life. Our goal is to work in collaboration with our local non-profit organizations to make a larger impact in our community and in our youth especially. A portion of our sales will benefit our community. It is our responsibility as parents and as a community to enrich the lives of our children and remind them of what is important. Love.
