Help me help hospitalized kids!

My name is Nick Wallace and I am 17 years old. In 2012 two very important things happened in my life. I had a lifesaving liver transplant AND I started a non profit called Nick’s Picks ( I could tell you a lot about both, but my website tells the story. What I need you to know is that I am asking for your help so I can continue to help hospitalized, isolated kids dealing with serious illness.

My non profit provides fun-filled backpacks loaded with the dozen items I found most fun and useful in the hospital. Each item has a specific purpose. You see, I had spent so much of my childhood in the hospital that I became a bit of an expert on what a kid needs to make the best of a bad situation. We are currently serving 15 hospitals and pediatric centers nationwide. We are constantly growing, and, although we have some amazing donors and sponsors, we need your help today.

I am grateful everyday for my second chance at life and I cannot think of a better way to show my gratitude than to help other kids by bringing them a little bit of happiness and hope during a very lonely and dark time.

I am asking for the donations in order to provide 2000 backpacks to the centers we serve in 2017. I know this is a lofty goal and a lot to ask, but every little bit helps. So does spreading the word.

Each backpack has over $200 in items and costs Nick’s Picks $50, wholesale, to provide, excluding the cost of shipping. Nick’s Picks is run entirely by volunteers, so 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes to providing backpacks to the kids. Any dollar amount you can give will bring us closer to meeting our goal of helping provide 2000 kids with a Nick’s Picks filled backpack.

Thank you for taking your time to read this and thank you for your help.
