STORIES OF MAKING LIFE BETTER FOR KIDS WITH CANCER
Let's make their holidays bright!
During this festive season, as your family begins making holiday plans and wish lists, we hope you’ll consider supporting an ASK Family right here in RVA. Your generous donations will help to alleviate stress for families taking care of a sick child and will allow our ASK kids to be what they should be – kids! Kids who are able to attend a holiday party with their family. Kids who get to visit Santa. Kids in the hospital who get to unwrap a new toy they love.
Here are three ways you can help to make the holidays brighter for our ASK kids and families:
1. Purchase a Toy for a Child
Help Santa get ready for the annual ASK Holiday Party on December 3rd where collectively 400 ASK kids, siblings and parents will attend. Purchase a new toy that is $25-$30 in price (no stuffed animals, please) and drop off the unwrapped toy by November 24th at the ASK office (5211 West Broad Street, Suite 102). We welcome your thoughtful gifts after that date, which we'll use for Santa's inpatient visits and to help our kids celebrate treatment milestones and birthdays throughout the year.
Not sure what to buy? Shop our Amazon wish list by using the link below. And, by the way, our teens love gift cards! Their faces will light up when they see a $25 card to Target, Walmart, Game Stop, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or a VISA gift card.
2. Adopt-a-Family & Shop
This holiday season, ASK is expecting to serve more local families of children with cancer than ever before, so round up your family, friends or co-workers and help us make the wishes of an ASK family come true. Your generous gifts will alleviate stress while providing comfort and joy to families taking care of a child with cancer. Here's how:
3. Don't have time to shop but want to help?
Make a holiday gift and let us do the shopping! A gift of $30 helps to buy a holiday toy for a child, $300 to adopt a family of two, $600 for a family of four and $1,000 will help us to make a mortgage payment or to pay a past due bill for a family who needs assistance.
Thank you for your kindness this holiday season!
