THE STORY:

Hello Friends,

As many of you know, the Family House is near and dear to my heart. When my sister, Martha, received her liver transplant back in 1991, I witnessed first-hand the need for a “home away from home” for transplant families, who - with nowhere else to go – often curled up in hospital waiting rooms, even showers, so that they could be by their loved one’s side during their life-saving transplant care. Creating the Family House was a dream of mine for 20 years, finally came to fruition in July 2011, and I am thrilled with how far it has come in just four short years – offering immeasurable support to hundreds of transplant families each year. And we couldn’t do it without you!

Please join me this Giving Tuesday, December 1st, in celebrating our 2nd Annual 40 Hours for the Family House challenge, by giving back to the transplant families who call the Family House their very own “home away from home”.

At 8:00 a.m. on December 1, 2015, a big DONATE button will appear to the right of this screen - at which point you can make a much appreciated contribution to Gift of Life Family House and help us reach our goal for the 2nd Annual 40 Hours for the Family House challenge. Each $40 donation helps cover a one-night stay at the Family House for a family in need this holiday season, but all donations – no matter the amount – are both welcomed and encouraged.

We also welcome you to participate in this fun and easy online fundraising challenge, simply go here and click the big, green SIGN UP button! You'll automatically receive your own fundraising page where you can upload your own pictures and add your own text. Then, on December 1st, you can send out a direct link to your family, friends, and coworkers to encourage them to contribute to your cause!

CLICK HERE for more information about the challenge. And if you have any questions, please contact the Family House Development Team at 267-546-9800 or by email at info@giftoflifefamilyhouse.org.

Last year, 50 team members collectively raised more than $27,000 to support the Adopt-A-Family Program at the Family House – that’s equivalent to nearly 700 nights of lodging for families in need! Can we count on you to make this year an even bigger success?

Challenge Starts: December 1, 2015 at 8:00am

Challenge Ends: December 2, 2015 at 11:59pm

Thank you so much for all your support.

With much gratitude from our House to yours,

Howard
