Who is ready for 2021?! Let's say good-bye to 2020!

We are grateful that you have shown up for us in 2020, despite the changes the pandemic brought about. Thank you for helping us to handmake blankets and donate to families impacted by cancer at The Ronald McDonald House charities in January. Thank you for participating in the Dine for a Cause at Swenson's in June. It afforded us to purchase iPad's for families separated in the transplant unit at the University of Chicago Medicine Hospital. Thank you for participating in our Alex's Memorial lemonade stand where we donated $1,017.57 to fund 20 hours of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia cancer research. Thank you for attending the virtual book drive in September. We were able to purchase boxes of books, puzzles and activities that we have been sending out to the newly diagnosed in 2020 and their families throughout the U.S. Thank you for attending the Virtual Wine Night with Silent Auction. The donations from the auction raised $7,751. The net donations from Eventbrite was $4,046!. We were thrilled to put this money towards our next family playroom.

Remember, we are a registered 501(3)(c) eligible for tax-deductible year-end contributions from donor-advised funds. You can also mail a check postmarked December 31, 2020 for the calendar year deduction. Our mailing address is PO Box 952, 597 High Street, Worthington, OH 43085. If you are impacted by the pandemic, you can help us for FREE by adding us to your Amazon Smile account, telling people about the charity, swabbing with BeTheMatch or donating to the American Red Cross blood drives during this critical time. We look forward to seeing you in 2021 and continuing to advocate for families battling cancer diagnoses.
