We are excited to kick off #GivingTuesday AND the start of our Holiday Giving Book Drive. With your support we hope to collect books to build our new lending library at Lurie Children’s Hospital. From November 27th through December 11th our goal is to collect 500 books for ages birth through adult. You can contribute by shopping from our Amazon Wish List or donate through PayPal or Stripe. The gift of books means so much to those that are stuck in the hospital. 💓
We want to thank everyone who contributed to our book fundraiser and to all who attended Eugene's Heart Day picnic. We are grateful to those who have helped us give back and to honor Eugene in the process. We were able to raise over 1,000 books! We have made 3 book drop offs at hospitals so far. We look forward to expanding into more hospitals and continuing provide more books.
Join us Sunday May 20th in honor of Eugene's Heart Day for a picnic in the park. This will be our first annual fundraiser as we choose the day he received his heart transplant for our biggest day of giving back. Help us to make it a success. We are now just past 30% our goal to get 1,000 books. There will be a suggested donation of $10 per family. All proceeds raised will go to the purchase of books for pediatric heart patients and their families. Rain or shine!
In honor of Eugene’s Heart day, (the day he received the gift of a heart transplant) we are setting a goal to collect 1,000 books by May 20th. This will be our biggest giving event yet. We have placed over 600 books into the hospital where he was treated so far. With these books we can make a big impact on a sick child’s hospital stay. We will also be having a picnic on May 20th with details to follow.
We have begun the process of becoming an official nonprofit charity organization. The first drop off of resources will take place in the beginning of November and we are gathering books. Our hearts are warmed by the desire to help our cause.
