BENEFITING: NEGU|Jessie Rees FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Aug 31, 2015
Jessie’s compassion for others led her to ask her parents a short and simple question, “How can we help them?” Jessie was referring to the other children who were in long term, in-patient treatment at Childrens Hospital of Orange County, the same hospital that Jessie was receiving treatment from.
After receiving the “go ahead” from her parents to find a way to help, Jessie created JoyJars®. She just loved creating these fun-filled gifts of joy to share with her peers who were fighting cancer and she continued to encouraged them to NEGU®. NEGU, Never Ever Give Up, was Jessie’s personal motto and message.
Jessie began sharing her message: Never Ever Give Up (NEGU) by personally stuffing and delivering her JoyJars, 64oz jars stuffed full of age appropriate toys for over 3,000 courageous kids battling cancer. This gives other kids hope during a very lonely and limited time. Jessie's Mission is to ensure every child fighting cancer has the support and resources they need to NEVER EVER GIVE UP. 90,000 jars stuffed and sent to courageous kids. 50 states and 28 countries. We are looking for your donations to provide Jessie's jars to kids with cancer.
Jessie was a faith-filled, beautiful, athletic, caring and loving twelve year old girl who courageously fought two brain tumors (DIPG) from March 3, 2011 to January 5, 2012. Our hope is to continue her wish of helping other children fighting cancer to never ever give up. Please go to www.negu.org for more info on this amazing charity!
