Christmas for Kids is a fundraiser created to provide children in the hospitals of Long Island with Christmas gifts. This year, we are expanding to encompass families in need as well.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 to spend as follows:
- $5000 for gifts to children in hospitals on Long Island!
- $5000 to sponsor 5 families in need with gifts, food, a Christmas tree....anything they need to make the Holiday better!
This campaign was started with the hope to bring back a little happiness to the difficult lives of these children. To put a smile on a child's face is one of the purest forms of joy and fulfillment I know. Every year, thousands of children have to spend their Christmas in a hospital. On top of that, there are thousands of families that have fallen on hard times whose struggle seems to double during the holidays.
That's where we come in.
Along with providing gifts to Children's Hospitals, we will be sponsoring 5 families in need. We are asking all of you to write us letters for someone you know that needs a little help during the holidays. We ask that you provide the name of the family, along with a description of their current situation and what we can do to help. We will read over all of these letters and select 5 families to sponsor. If we select your family and you wish to remain anonymous, we will not disclose who sent us the letter. Our goal is to provide these 5 families with gifts, food, a Christmas tree or even just help with bills.
If anyone knows of any other Children's Hospitals on Long Island or in the New York City area, please let us know. If you could provide a contact, that would be even better!
We greatly appreciate all your generosity and support. Please donate and share this page with friends and family. Let's spread the word, spread the love and spread the spirit of Christmas to the kids!
You are amazing! Please stay safe this holiday season.
Thank you and God Bless!
