Hi I’m Savannah! I’m starting this fund to send care packages to children and their families battling cancer. In memory of my sweet cousin Noah, Noah’s Boxes of Sunshine will provide some happiness and support to little warriors across the country. Noah returned home to heaven in June after fighting cancer for all four and a half years of his life. His family received lots of love and help during those hard times, and I want to continue to spread that love. These boxes will include the children’s favorite toys, books, games, stuffed animals, comfort items, etc. and also gas cards, gift cards, and essentials for their parents. There is nothing that can take away the pain and heartbreak of childhood cancer, but I want to at least provide some sunshine to these sweet kiddo‘s lives.
100% of donations will be used to buy items for the boxes :)
Every day, 43 kids are diagnosed with cancer in the United States. One in five children diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. will not survive. The lives of these families are completely turned around and they are faced with much heartbreak and stress. The simplest of surprises and gifts can add a little light to these kid’s days. I’m hoping these boxes can give some comfort and happiness to them as they undergo treatment and face their battle with cancer.Emily Haws is my mom and is listed as the beneficiary to withdraw the donations for me, since I’m a minor. We will withdraw the donations and then 100% will go towards the boxes.
