Calling all Heroes!!
So many have asked when the next Mad Dash 5K Run is happening. Plans are underway; so watch for further notices – and plan on APRIL 2017
I recently contacted a company looking for 24 youth / toddler baseball caps (that I felt we could afford) for use at our Annual Recognition Dinner and Fundraiser (at the Dodger Stadium). I’m the first to admit that I am very frugal and very watchful of our expenses outside of the patient events.
After a number of calls to companies found on the internet, I was getting a little discouraged – youth size or toddler size baseball caps, while adorable, are very pricey!
Late in the afternoon, after I had called it a day, the phone rang and this incredibly kind spoken gentleman asked a few questions about From Maddi’s Closet and what we were looking for. By the time we had hung up the phone, he had promised to make us a deal we couldn’t resist – he donated the 24 caps we needed and threw in 12 more – just in case.
And, a big box of perfect white baseball caps (beautifully packed I might add) arrived within 2 days. Anyone buying sports hats (of any kind) – he’s got a huge selection. And, they’re really, really nice people to work with.
We want to express our appreciation to each and everyone of you who have supported From Maddi’s Closet’s mission to help improve the lives of children battling cancer! You are the heart of this organization – we do not have the words to express how meaningful your generosity is to us – and the children and families we serve!
For anyone planning on making a tax-deductible donation for 2015, don’t miss the deadline! – We know you’re busy preparing for the holidays, but ask that you take a minute to make a big difference – DONATE NOW – and you can “check it off your to-do list”.
