Kidd’s Kids Day Is Tomorrow!!!
Tomorrow is the one day each year that we raise money for Kidd’s Kids. We make it just one day so you aren’t inundated, but we want to let you know just how important your donation is! You’re helping a child who is chronically or terminally ill, along with their family, enjoy a trip to Disney. This may sound like something unnecessary, but trust me, it isn’t. I’ve never been to Disney, but I don’t begrudge these children and their families going. Put yourself in their place. Their lives are filled with doctors and hospitals and needles and tests. Their parents’ lives are filled with worry, concern for their child, heart break, the stress of paying for the medical treatment(s), as well as getting their child to appointments, etc… If there are other children in the family, imagine how neglected you would feel if all of the attention was focused on a sick sibling? It’s not on purpose, but unfortunately, there are a set number of hours in the day. It’s for all of these reasons and more that we are asking for your donation tomorrow. This is a chance for these kids and their families to just ‘BE!’ They can take over Disney in wheelchairs, braces, etc… and not be gawked at rudely. This could be their last chance to really be together as a family. Won’t you help? We have a local child going and her name is Shilo Kopp. Help make she and her families’ dreams come true! What if this was your child? What if this was your life? Wouldn’t it be nice to know that the people in your community stepped up to help? We have multiple ways to donate tomorrow and I’ve listed them below. For more information on Kidd’s Kids, click here.
