In honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness month, please consider donating to a book drive for the upcoming Santa Day with the Hang Tough Foundation! There will be approximately 200-250 kids who will be participating, however thanks to your generosity last year, we have leftover books and only need to raise funds for an additional 125 kids! Our goal is to sponsor every kid at $10. Usborne Books & More will match all donations at 50%, so that means every kid sponsored will receive $15 worth of books! 100% of your donation will go to purchasing books for Santa Day. See below for more info on Santa Day & the Hang Tough Foundation.
About Santa Day: Hang Tough Foundation is ready to start gearing up for Santa Day 2019! This is a private event for our Hang Tough Hero families to have individual appointment times to meet Santa! Many of these families are unable to visit Santa in a public setting and as a result, the kids miss out on this special time and parents are unable to capture a photo of their family with Santa Claus, like every other family. This quiet, subdued atmosphere is great for children that get upset easily by all the noise and busy atmosphere of the mall. Immunocompromised kids get some of the first time slots to keep our foot traffic and germ exposure as low as possible.
About the Hang Tough Foundation: Hang Tough Foundation was formed in 2015 with the goal to care for the entire family of children affected by chronic or life-altering illnesses. Hang Tough works to provide support, hope and encouragement to families during their journey with childhood illness customized to their challenges and needs. Located in Tallahassee, Fla., the Hang Tough Foundation serves families in the Big Bend region of Florida. Life can be made more comfortable and their hope can be restored — with the help of the Hang Tough Foundation.
Thank you for your support!
