Where Does Your Money Go:
In addition to funding care packages to children all over the country, Fighting HARD is raising money for multiple programs that help to make HARD life a little easier! Here is a little more information about where 100% of your donations will go toward:
Fighting HARD Care Packages
Our custom care packages are sent out to children all over the United States to help them know that they are not alone! These care packages consist of our Fighting HARD T-shirts, bracelets, gift cards, current projects, books, games, gifts, play-doh, cards, crayons, etc. Depending on the child's age and interests, we send these care packages to help them through a particularly tough day, or when they are recieving treatments in a hospital setting, or before or after a surgery or procedure to help brighten their day and to let them know they are not alone! The value of these care packages range from $50-$100 and can also include goodies for the siblings who are often forgotten about during these times. Additionally, if funds are needed for the family, we will help to assist with travel and fuel expenses, as well as grocery gift cards.
Fighting HARD Family Fund
Currently, we are raising funds to implement a Fighting HARD Family Fund a K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital. This fund will be utilized to help families who are battling a rare or chronic illness while in the hospital. Child Life Specialists who work closely with these families will have access to purchase a lunch or dinner to let that family know that they are not alone. Similar to a patient comfort fund, this specific fund will be for families that are having a particularly rough day while dealing with the struggles that a chronic or rare illness can bring on. In addition, this fund will be used to help with greater needs, including but not limited to financial assistance, travel expenses, funeral expenses, etc. It is important that in dark hours, we reach out and help families to know that they are not alone in this journey!
This is just one of our many projects that we send out throughout the year. We have sent over 100 of these projects out to kids all over the country who are Fighting HARD. These projects cost~$25/each to make and ship, and bring happiness and creativity to children who may otherwise feel alone. We have created our very own Play-Doh Museum with all of the exciting ideas!!!
Pediatric Palliative Care Program
We are currently raising funds to help support a program for Pediatric Palliative Care at K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital. This program is especially important to kids who are Fighting HARD in New Jersey so that they can receive the ongoing care of multidisciplinary team and improve the quality of life for these kids and their families. The goal of this program is to add life to the child’s years, not simply years to a child’s life, and this is a program that we are extremely passionate about supporting! Ultimately, we look forward to supporting these programs all over the country and creating additional support for families who are Fighting HARD.
