Children battling cancer… it breaks my heart. When a child battles an illness such as cancer, all that child wants is to have their mom and dad. How do you ask mom and dad to choose between being there for their child or going to work to pay the bills. You just can’t do that…

Here is a foundation that has not only realized this problem but has stepped up to try and do something about it. PLEASE check out their website and then tell me that this is not a cause worth supporting…

Here is an opportunity for YOU to help this foundation win a $25,000.00 grant from Pepsi and all it takes is 1 minute of your time between now and October 31, 2010. Log on to the Pepsi voting page and vote. You can vote every day right up until October 31, 2010.

Helping Families Handle Cancer Foundation

Our Foundation is new and needs a hand up! This is how our Care Program works:

  1. The Alberta Children’s Hospital refers families who are struggling financially because they have a child battling cancer. They fill out a Request for Assistance Form detailing the exact bills that the family needs help with.
  2. Helping Families Handle Cancer pays those bills directly to the creditor (eg: rent, gas, electricity, etc.). No money is given directly to the family and all the money goes directly for what it was intended.

During this time of need no family should have the additional worry about how they are going to pay their bills. This help allows them to stay at their child’s bedside during this catastrophic illness.

Our foundation needs help to jump start this idea. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to these families. Our foundation is 100% volunteer based. Choosing our Care Program will make a huge impact to families struggling with cancer.

If we help them win the $25,000.00 grant, here is how it will be used:

$25,000 – 100% will pay bills for families in need.
Budget Notes: We help families with some of their rent, gas, groceries, and household bills. 100% of the proceeds of this grant will go directly to these families. This grant will have a BIG impact on the families we help. Our foundation is 100% volunteer based.

PLEASE vote for this idea and if you can, make a small donation, every little bit helps and is greatly appreciated.

Please help this foundation help families and their children.
