Hi, it's Rachel. Thank you for being here, reading this. I have been involved with Lollipop Theater Network since 2008 and never before have I been a part of something that brings such joy to the lives of children. Lollipop is a remarkable, non-profit organization and it needs your help. Plus, let's face it, giving back feels good and knowing that you are making a difference feels good, but bringing a laugh, smile or a brief life-escape to a child feels better than anything in the world...
I will never forget my first hospital visit. I was nervous, unsure of what to say and how to act, and, to a certain degree, I was scared. What if I froze or failed or said the wrong thing? I didn't want to let anyone down. I wanted to be part of an organization that helps children with life-threatening illnesses be children again. The most important lesson I learned that day was that I had nothing to be scared of. Even the smallest gesture can make a difference.
My fundraising goal for Lollipop is $10,000 and I realize that it seems like an awfully big number, but I have always been a firm believer in the idea of "go big or go home". Please contribute to this wonderful organization...every dollar counts. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
