Fundraiser for Leah’s Hope – www.leahshope.us
I am trying to do an online fundraiser in order to help fund my Christmas Project for parents of hospitalized children, Leah’s Hope Ministries. Here is a basic description of what I am trying to accomplish - - Below is a letter with a link to the online fundraiser – will you please help me make this fundraiser a success and forward to all your friends and even post a link on your social media sites –
I am trying to provide several blessings to families of a hospitalized child this Christmas Season. Although this time of year can be harder for others, several families end up in the hospital, in the ICU fighting for their child's life, etc... my mission for this ministry is to shed a little "light" & “encouragement” to these families by way of being an experienced parent of a child that had extended stays in the hospital. My daughter was in the hospital for a total of 14 months. It is not easy financially, emotionally, or physically to watch your child suffer in a hospital bed, much less during the Holidays. We take things for granted, being able to be with our own families this time of year but “many” are not able to do so and even end up losing a loved one! Can you please help me?
I am trying to provide a “Special Christmas” to some of these parents with a child in the ICU this Christmas Season. I am in need of a total of 12 more dinner gift cards to be able to feed both parents in addition to finding the funds for 24 – “$20 Gas Cards” to place inside a Christmas Stocking. In this regard, I need your help in pulling the funds together to purchase these gift cards.
Our ministry runs solely on the financial assistance provided by various generous people which is very little. All our financial aid comes from people who voluntarily donate the amounts they think proper to our ministry. This fund is then utilized by us to cater to parents in order to be able to provide food, handmade items such as blankets for the children, gas cards, books, magazines, puzzles, etc. This is why I am looking to you for help as far as helping Leah’s Hope to give a “Gift of Hope” this Christmas Season to some Parents of Critically ill Children. With your help, I will be able to accommodate and fill 2 dozen (24) stockings filled with a dinner card, gas card, personal items and snacks.
Your Help Would Be Extremely Helpful! Thank you for considering in helping provide a better Christmas for these families.
