Children's Palliative Center Holiday Event

€3,748 of €3,000 goal

Raised by 51 people in 7 months
Created May 25, 2018
In 2015, our daughter Amalia was diagnosed with a rare, 100% fatal disease called Tay Sachs.  Since her diagnosis, we have been lucky to receive medical and family support from LMU's Children's Palliative Center in Munich.  

As a way to give back to other families in a similar situation as ours, we started a holiday event and gift giving program in 2017.  We would like to continue this event in 2018 and provide families who are spending their holidays in the Palliative Center with a bit of holiday cheer and pampering.  The money we are raising for the event will go towards:

--> Delicious food provided by HEART Restaurant
--> Mom & Dad Gift Bags with special pampering items
--> Massages  for the parents
--> Craft supplies to make a special keepsake with their child
--> Additional gifts for siblings of sick children
--> The purchase of any gifts not purchased from the gift registry

About Sticky Fingers Family e.V.

The Sticky Fingers Family e.V. is dedicated to improving the quality of life for families who have a child with a rare, life-limiting disease.  Our sole mission is to provide families access to resources, tools and community through workshops, personal networks and special events to help alleviate the isolation rare disease families often face.

We partner with families through the Kinderpalliative Center as well as the numerous Ambulante Kinderkrankenplege services in and around the Munich area.

We are raising money through a number of different organisations and events to help pay for and support the programs we create and run for families within the Palliative network.  100% of our donations go to family programs organised by the Sticky Fingers Family Foundation.

Thank you for your ongoing support!

Hi generous donors and Happy New Year! A quick note to let you all know that the event and gift giving was truly a remarkable success. With your donations, we were able to provide a lovely holiday event at the Palliative Center in Munich, which included music, crafting, a delicious luncheon, gift giving and wellness massages for the parents.

In addition to the event, your donations helped us to create gift baskets for families who have a child in palliative care who have financial hardships. In total, we reached 20 families in and around the Munich area.

We are humbled by everyone's generosity and support of our annual holiday gift giving. In the coming days, we will share with you some photos of the event and give you an update of future palliative focused events and fundraisers.

Sending much love and light to your families as you begin your 2019 adventures,
Carrie, Frank & Amalia

The FIRST Palliative Family Gift is being picked up by one of the palliative docs in just a few minutes.... these are prepaid phone cards to a family in financial stress and currently have not been able to reactivate their phone. Communication is a vital utility if you have a medically fragile child.

We are gifting this early to make sure this family has a means of keeping in contact with critical people! Your donations at work!!!
THANK YOU!!!!
