This Star Won't Go Out is joining in the Newman's Own Holiday Challenge, an exciting collaborative online challenge running from November 21, 2017 to January 3, 2018, with opportunities for lots of bonus awards! We already have so many awesome supporters, and with your help we are confident we can reach our goal of raising funding to support 20 new families in 2018.
As This Star Won't Go Out has grown, so have the needs too many families face when their child is diagnosed with life-threatening cancer. Just imagine--when your child is sick, the last thing you want is to be worrying about bills, when all of your energy should to be on your child. Beginning in 2011, in memory of 16-year-old Esther Earl, TSWGO has given out over $450,000 in grants and helped hundreds of families, freeing them up to focus on their child who is in treatment. A gift of money is really a gift towards quality time as a family—and that’s a treasure beyond value.
Where does your money go? Our typical family grant is large enough to pay for a month's rent or mortgage, at an average of $1000-$1500. Sometimes a family needs help with utilities, car payments, or travel to and from hospitals. Sadly, we've helped pay for gravestones too.
Now we are asking for YOUR help in raising $25,000. Together we can make this year's "This Star Won't Go Out - Newman's Own Challenge" a fundraiser to help 20 or more families in the new year. Thank you!
