We're raising money for the
Fleece Blankets & Care Packages
fundraiser led by
San Francisco, CA
I started making care packages for children with chronic/serious illnesses over half a year ago. Inside my packages is a handmade fleece blanket and a variety of toys and activities. Recently I have started ordering rubber wristbands called 'Bracelets of Bravery' that I can mail to children separately or inside of their care package.
I run an Instagram (@goldribbonawareness) which spreads awareness about childhood cancer, and explains about my program.
So far I have sent about 15 blankets & 10 care packages to children in hospitals all around the country and currently have about 20 applications that I am working on.
What I'm Raising Money For
I am raising money to make blanket packages and Bracelets of Bravery for children in the hospital facing serious and chronic illnesses. Each blanket package costs about $25 or so with shipping each bracelet costs $5.
Why You Should Give
By donating to my program, you will help give a child who spends a lot of time in the hospital a package with toys, games, and a colorful blanket the will brighten a hospital room. With medical costs being expensive for families, giving children these packages can take one burden off their backs.
The Bracelets of Bravery are worn as a constant reminder that the child is brave and stay brave when they are going through a tough day.
