Did you know that September is pediatric cancer awareness month?
While childhood cancer is rare, it’s the leading cause of disease-related death in the United States, with 43 children being diagnosed every day in the US.
I want to make a difference in a child’s life, 50, to be exact, but I need YOUR help. That’s why I’m hosting a Cuddle Bear Drive!
What is a Cuddle Bear Drive?
I am running a fundraiser now through the end of this month in order to give a cuddly “bear hug” to fifty children at the Banner Desert Hospital, formerly known as Cardon Children’s, in Mesa, Arizona.
Once we raise $250, Usborne Books and More will match our donations by 50%! That means that $850 in donations turns into $1275 – that’s 51 sets of Cuddle Bears & Books we can give to sick children at Banner Desert Hospital.
Why Cuddle Bears?
Usborne matches 50% of order & donation totals, which allows us to give 50 cuddle bears for the price of 34. This also allows the bears to ship directly from the warehouse to the hospital, which decreases cross-contamination during COVID. (Don’t worry, I’ll be posting a video when I hit the “order” button!!)
The Cuddle Bear Sets also donates 10% of the proceeds to the Scott Carter Foundation to End Pediatric Cancer!!
Your Donation goes a long way!
This means that every $50 gives three children a cuddle bear set and $5 goes towards pediatric cancer research! Or, every $100 gives six children a cuddle bear set and $10 towards pediatric cancer research! This is a win/win situation!
How Can You Help?
Please consider donating to the Cuddle Bear Drive! The children at Banner Desert need these bear hugs more than ever. While they are in the hospital battling their disease, COVID keeps them more isolated than anyone would ever hope for.
Let’s bring some sunshine into their day!
