BENEFITING: Make Some Noise Cure Kids Cancer Foundation
ORGANIZER: Make Some Noise Cure Kids Cancer Foundation
Hello Everyone! I know many of our Rockin for the Gold Supporters were asking when our event would be this year but unfortunately we were unable to put our annual event together for 2015. It is with GREAT HOPE with all of our prior support that you all may choose to help us with a challenge from the LIFE IS GOOD company ! If we win the challenge on top of the money raised LIFE IS GOOD will donate a matching GRANT TO 3 winners of $50,000! This will be our ROCKIN 2015! By just sending a few emails or asking your local business to support us we can all raise money for KIDS CANCER RESEARCH! Please consider donating to this page in honor and support of Lilly who is now in her junior year of high school and enjoying her life 6 years cancer free! Together we can make a difference in the ongoing support needed to fight pediatric cancer ! Thank you for your consideration of a donation... Gerri and Lilly Daneman

Make Some Noise funds amazing breakthough research for kids cancers. We were founded by a cancer kid named Malcolm. We draw no salaries so that every penny possible goes to research!
Besides funding life-saving research our favorite project is The National Angel Quilt for Childhood Cancer. It is a powerful and moving tribute quilt to children we have lost to cancer. To date most of the quilt's production expenses have come out of our own pockets, and Malcolm's mom sews the quilt. Touring costs for two summers were donated by Mrs. Christie's charity, "NJ Heroes" and all the other touing has been tough to scramble together. The quilt is gaining momentum as more families hear about the quilt and add their angels.. This year, the quilt will outgrow its tiny budget. We need money for materials, production, hotels, gas, insurance, state charity registrations and we despirately need a new vehicle because we've been pulling the quilt around with the family's ancient mini-van.
