So for the past month or so, I've been volunteering for Heroes For Children, an organization that "provides financial and social assistance to families, within the state of Texas, with children (0-22 yrs of age) battling cancer." And y'all: OH, it has been fun!
It *totally* appeals to my inner secretary wannabe. Stuffing and addressing envelopes? LOVE. Entering information into databases? LOVE. Copying stuff? LOVE LOVE LOVE.
(You all must know by now that I'm a freak. Or if you didn't previously, you do now. BECAUSE I LOVE THIS STUFF.)
So I encourage all of you in the Big D area to volunteer too! Or, if you don't love gluing envelopes shut as much as I do (how could you not?!? It's so relaxing!), you can donate here to help celebrate HFC's 5-year anniversary! They're only asking for $5!
Jenny, who's the executive director and co-founder (and angel Allie's mom!), writes:
Dear friends and family,
I am so proud that Heroes for Children is turning five years old this fall. This year, we anticipate serving more than 800 Texas families battling a form of childhood cancer. Our services provide direct finacial assistance to families in their most difficult and stressful times and provide support to the families and children undergoing treatment.
Five years ago, we lost our daughter Allie. She would be five and a half years old. Please help me honor her and her legacy with this very big five year milestone. What we're asking for is simple--make a five dollar donation to our organization in honor of five years. Please consider clicking on the link and making a donation. Become a fundraiser too and help us spread the word.
Thank you for helping us have five successful years in Allie and Taylor's memory.
With lots of love,
This is an amazing organization that I've loved helping out. They've made such a tremendous impact on the families of children with cancer. You can help out too!
