THE STORY:

I am making my miles matter by fundraising for The Pennies from Heaven Fund at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh.

The Pennies from Heaven helps to ease financial hardships for parents so that they can stay with their children in the hospital. Whether it’s assistance with transportation, food, sibling care, or other expenses, the Pennies from Heaven fund was established to keep families together when they need it most.

Thank you for making a donation, no matter how big or small, to support my efforts. Together we are making a difference in the lives of children and their families. Thank you SO much for any donation! XOXO.

Letter from a Grateful Mother

My 18-month-daughter suffered a terrible accident in July and spent six weeks in Children's Hospital PICU. Pennies from Heaven stepped in and assisted our family so that we were able to focus on our daughter. During our time at Children's, I came across so many families that were also thrust into horrible situations with their children and most don't realize the financial burden that is put upon families when their children are in the hospital for an extended period. This is a wonderful foundation and I was so blessed to have them help us.

 

Last year I (WE) raised $800! Let's do it again!
