to children with cancer and other serious illnesses, they are remarkably compassionate, generous and creative in their donations. Here are some examples of what children have done in support of Breanna’s Gift: High School Penny Wars, donation of weekly Sunday School offerings, a 5K Run & Fun Walk, Birthday Party dollars given to Breanna’s Gift in honor of the birthday celebrant, lemonade stands, proceeds from donation boxes at piano and dance recitals, dance line competitions selling items and holding raffles during events, a dancers’ photo-op session where proceeds from the photos were donated, and then there are the ever-popular bake sales and silent auctions, sometimes a component of these special FUNdraisers. From Dance Line Competitions to selling Smencils at the Mall of America, we watched children of all ages get involved in wonderful ways. It’s amazing and so heartfelt.
Perhaps you like what others have done, and maybe you have ideas of your own. You might know budding philanthropists who’d be energized by the opportunity to help other children. Hold a Dance-a-Thon, a garage sale, or you decide. The smiles that will be spread aren’t just on faces of recipients, you’ll be smiling, too!
There are so many creative ways to come together and make a difference. Let us know if you’d like to get involved by contacting us for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
