Hello friends and family,
On October 28th I am running the Healsburg half marathon and raising money for Give one dollar a day.
Give one doallar a day is a non profit started by 2 of the amazing nurses I work with at UCSF in pediatric hematology and oncology. These nurses saw a need and have made major strides in fixing it. I have worked at UCSF now for over 15 years and I have met so many families along the way. Many of these families live several hours away from San Francisco, some out of the state. They have uprooted their lives to find the best care for their children. Many have to bring their other children and sometimes spend a year or more in the hospital. Imagine the financial burden this causes
Give One Dollar A Day is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping ease the financial burden of families affected by illness and poverty. In our first year, Give One Dollar A Day raised close to $60,000, and we were able to help many families with rent support, car payments, utility bills, cell phone bills, groceries, and transportation needs. As we grow, we plan to continue supporting hospitalized families, as well as expand our reach to include other communities in need such as foster care youth and at-risk youth and families. Our goal is to help fill critical needs of families and children that are otherwise overlooked by the current support systems in place. Our hope is to help make these families and children feel important and seen, and help bring them some much needed respite, support, and JOY. www.giveonedollaraday.org
Please know that 100% of your donations will go to the families. You are not paying for my race, training or anything else. This is just a way to make people aware of this wonderful non-profit.
Anything will help and thank you in advance.
