Joy Bags

I have an EXCITING opportunity to share with you! As you know, Abby is beginning her VEPTR journey this summer. Kids who have their implantation surgery are on their backs for 2-3 weeks in the hospital while healing and figuring out how to manage the pain. Can you imagine keeping a preschooler occupied for that long?! Yeah, me neither... 

My wonderful friend Cathy, a 31 consultant, has created a fundraiser to provide a 31 Cinch Sack filled with toys and activities for VEPTR kids at CHOP to enjoy while they're in the hospital. Our goal is to have 50 bags sponsored. With your $20 donation, we will fill a Cinch Sack with fun toys such as cars, twistable crayons, coloring books, bubbles, play-dough, decks of cards, etc. Your donation is 100% tax deductable (CHOP's tax ID number is: 23-1352166, as posted on its website.) I will take the bags with me to CHOP for our awesome surgical team to distribute as VEPTR kids come in for surgeries.

Will you sponsor a Joy Bag or two and help us to spread a little JOY to the VEPTR kids at CHOP? Email me at juliebleach@yahoo.com for more information!

Love this idea and the ability to bring some "joy" to a child going through this surgery AND I really love the name (of course)! If you do NOT hear from me via email soon, trust that I have forgotten and need a prod from you; in fact, I would love for you to just go ahead and email me the information I need to make a donation. xxoo from Debbie ERwin
