Tuesday, May 5, is #GivingTuesdayNow, a special global 24-hour day of giving and unity
in response to the unprecedented need caused by the pandemic. Families who care for
children with complex medical needs are especially vulnerable at a time when many
primary care providers and pediatric specialists are being called to the Covid-19
frontlines. They are lacking community, access to medical supplies, and are struggling
to cope. We urgently need your support to continue to provide our families with vital
services, assistance and virtual camp programming that allows them to stay connected
to a caring community.
We are proud to be part of North Star Reach’s upcoming Camp-A-Thon Challenge by
hosting a fundraiser in support families caring for a child with a serious illness.
The pandemic poses threats to their children's health that will continue even
after states lift shelter-in-place orders. The dollars raised will help North Star
Reach provide vital support, services and community for these families. This
includes innovative virtual summer camp programming to help kids with serious
illnesses stay connected even if they can’t physically be together at camp.
