As of today, our TP Pumpkin fundraiser for This Star Won’t Go Out, one of our favorite charities, officially finished off! We raised $574, which will benefit the amazing work TSWGO does in providing financial assistance to families dealing with pediatric cancer.
We’d like to say a HUGE thank you to GPM Pediatrics, Fort Hamilton Chiropractic, Vavas Insurance, Brooklyn Braces, and The Book Mark Shoppe, the very generous businesses that held and sold our TP patches. Also, we’d like to thank Gold Thimble Fabrics, Decorators Den, and Doral Interiors for their beautiful donations of fabric, which we used to wrap the TP rolls and them look like pumpkins! And, last but certainly not least, we’d like to thank the very supportive people who purchased our TP Pumpkins! Without you, there’d have been no fundraiser!
Also, thanks to the Brownies at the Holy Cross Girl Scout Troop, who invited me to their meeting last Friday and listened to my story and the development of PJ’s for Patients. We discussed what it means to help people, and how even though you may be small, you can still make a big difference! 🙂 These girls were so enthusiastic and excited about serving their community, and, after hearing my presentation, went on to prepare sandwiches for the homeless that would be delivered that night! They also made TP pumpkins of their own several weeks ago, and were very generous in buying some of our pumpkins to benefit TSWGO. We look forward to doing a Pajama Day with them during their last meeting of the year, towards the end of December!
Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at PJ’s for Patients! We hope you have a happy, relaxing, and comfortable Thanksgiving full of love, laughs, and delicious food! As Esther said so beautifully, “Just be happy, and if you can’t be happy, do things that make you happy. Or do nothing with the people that make you happy.” This is a huge part of what Thanksgiving’s about. I’m thankful for all that PJ’s for Patients has taught me, and for all of our donors who have been so generous in their support, both financially and verbally. I’m also thankful for all the incredible families with whom we have worked over this past year. They’ve been the reason for PJ’s for Patients, and our motivation to keep going. We hope that all of our PJ’s for Patients kids and their families have a fantastic holiday!!
