To celebrate another amazing year of giving back, let's give back some more!
Last year we raised over $4000, and I know we can kill that number this year. With that money, we were able to give the following to the kids at CHLA:
- 412 Books
- 120 Jars of Play-Doh
- 40 baby toys
- 28 sets of bubbles
- 10 mobiles
- 9 bath and body kit for teenage girls
- 8 dolls
- 8 $25 movie gift cards
- 7 sets of legos
- 6 stuffed animal
- 5 pieces of Dodgers merchandise
After last year and some changes to the Literally Healing program, they're in desperate need of help. They've lost all their storage so we're going to give all the money to the Literally Healing in gift cards so they can buy the books they need.
The program does a lot of great things for the children and families at the hospital. They really need our help this year, so let's do this.
CrowdRise will match up to $200 of funds raised by each CrowdRise employee. Best news ever.
We'll send the gift cards to the hospital in January, but after flu season we can try to arrange a day to go in and read to some of the children.
