We are so grateful for the support of Amy Gail Buchman Preschool at Congregation Schaarai Zedek!

Many thanks to Preschool Director Jodi Cohen and Cindy Sershen for working with us and helping us to spread the word at AGB!

Thank you also, to our kind friends Jami Smith, Courtney Shellgren, Lauren Mincberg, and Taylor Jones for helping explain our mission and spread the word.

Mostly, thank you to the families of AGB!  Your support, generosity, and kind words really help to motivate us!   Thanks to you, we sold over 100 shirts and raised over $3,000 to help kids get home for the holidays!  We have exceeded our goal of $3,000 for Emmi Grace’s 3rd Birthday and could not be more proud of the families at AGB!

As of September 12, our bin is already full and will be emptied this weekend to make room for additional donations.  This is absolutely amazing and we are humbled by the support! 

Ways to support our September projects:

  1. Drop off new kids’ pajamas and comfy pillow cases in the GOLD bin in the courtyard throughout the month of September.
  2. Purchase a t-shirt by Saturday, September 8 and wear it to school September 26 and 27. ORDERING IS NOW CLOSED
  3. Wear GOLD this September to show your support for all of the TINY but TOUGH warriors fighting cancer.  Talk to people about kids’ cancers.
  4. Like and follow us on Facebook@EmmiGracesAngels 
  5. Make a tax deductible donation anytime (head over to our “How You Can Help” page.)

In only 2 weeks, the amazingly generous families at AGB FILLED our donation bin with comfy PJs and pillow cases. 

We cleared it out September 15 and are so excited that it is filling back up quickly!

PJ and PILLOW CASE drive will continue until September 30.

Thank you AGB Families!

September 2018 T-Shirt Drive

Kids fighting cancer may be TINY but they sure are TOUGH! 

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

September is childhood cancer awareness month. In the US, 7 children die from cancer or its treatment every single day. Another 43 will be diagnosed today. This is not acceptable! Often times, people think that kids cancer is “being handled” but sadly, only 4% of the National Cancer Institute Budget goes to pediatric cancers. Breakthroughs and advances are largely funded by private family foundations. Wearing GOLD this September can help to raise awareness for kids’ cancers and show support for those fighting! Can you imagine how great it is for a kid with cancer to see someone else wearing GOLD for them??

Where will the t-shirt sales proceeds go?
Did you know that some kids with cancer are ready to be discharged from the hospital but have to stay because insurance isn’t covering their necessary medical supplies? Simple things like antibiotics?!?! Or that some pediatric cancer patients don’t have coverage so have to stay in patient when it’s not medically necessary??

For Emmi’s 3rd Birthday, we want to help get these kids home for the holidays! It costs about $1500 to get the medical supplies needed for a childhood cancer patient to go home.  Thanks to the generosity of so many, for her 2nd birthday, we collected $2,000.  This year, our goal is $3,000 for her 3rd birthday!  Please consider helping us get these kiddos home for the holidays in honor of Emmi’s Birthday!

T-Shirt Options:

Please consider purchasing a t-shirt (to help get these kids home) and wearing it (to bring awareness and show support)!
Please note that there are 2 shirt options:
$20 cotton available in 2t-6t
$30 performance available in Youth XS – Adult XXL. Be sure to chose adult or youth size accordingly.

You Can Purchase Your Shirt Here

Cancer attacks families. We want to be there for families so that they know that these kids are TINY BUT TOUGH! And so are we!

Thank you for helping us to GO GOLD this September and supporting families fighting childhood cancers!
