    Emily’s Hopeful Holiday was created in honor of our daughter Emily, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the age of 7 in 2007. She was treated at Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio and is now a CANCER SURVIVOR at the very young age of 17. During our painful journey we discovered that there are many families who are struggling with the staggering cost of cancer treatments. We have raised $135,586.56 since the fund's establishment in 2007. 100% of the money raised goes directly to the families at Rainbow to assist them in paying their bills (utilities, rent, etc.). For more information on EHH, please review this blog for links to media and other information. Emily's Hopeful Holiday Fund is through Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital in Cleveland, OH and we are always accepting donations. Please use the CONTACT ME button to email me if you would like to make a contribution or use the PAYPAL DONATION button on the right side bar to make a donation. This fund assists families throughout the entire year, however, we focus our fundraising efforts during the holiday season. We will always remember the fear and heartache of chemo treatments, lumbar punctures, sedations, medical procedures, surgeries, and anxiously waiting on every test result. Our nerve wracking, yet relatively simple routine trips to the Ireland Cancer Center for Emily’s check-ups remind us of where we have been and that there are families and children just beginning this journey, continuing to endure this journey, and/or ending this journey with either an immense gratefulness or an unspeakable sadness. We are so grateful for Emily’s amazing prognosis, for her health, for her laughter, for her smile, for her silliness, for her. We thank God everyday for His blessing upon our family and for all the wonderful people who surround our lives with love and support.

7th Annual Emily’s Hopeful Holiday Info on How YOU or YOUR BUSINESS can help!

It is time – EHH2013!

Hello friends!  I am beginning to work on this year’s 7th Annual Emily’s Hopeful Holiday!  Can you believe….our 7th year???   Last year’s grand total, was $16,209.84!  Making our grand total raised over $78,000 since 2007!  Wouldn’t it be awesome to hit $100,000 this year???!!!   We can do it…with YOUR help!

We could not do this without the help from our many generous supporters over the past six years.   As a reminder, 100% of the money we raise goes directly into our fund at Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.  This money assists families who have children with cancer by helping them pay their bills: mortgage, rent, utilities, car repairs to get to and from appointments, gas, and whatever else a family is in need of but cannot afford so that they can care for their sick child…that’s where we kick in!  Every penny you donate, goes DIRECTLY to families who have kids with cancer.

I will once again be doing the Sponsor Booklet where ads of various sizes can be purchased from $50 to $250; and front & back cover sponsorships are available for $300.  The booklets are handed out at the Event in November to all guests and is great exposure for your business as well as supporting a wonderful cause.

For all you wonderful and faithful past Sponsor Booklet supporters, please inbox me and let me know if you are interested in participating again this year and what size ad you would like to place.  The deadline is August 31, 2013 for ad placement.  Information on ad placement is located here:  https://emilyshopefulholiday.wordpress.com/coupon-sponsor-recognition-booklet-info/

I would once again like to purchase an Apple MacBook as our big raffle item.  Last year, I posted a request for donations for this item on facebook, and received $1000 in three days by some wonderful and generous supporters.  I am once again asking for 10 $100 donations to apply toward the Apple Macbook as this raffle was so successful last year.   Please inbox me if you are interested.

Also, last year we had a record 63 raffle items!  YAY!  I could not do this without the help of all my friends, family and support from the community.  If you or your business would like to donate to our raffle, please inbox me with your commitment.  I’d like to start receiving raffle items by the end of August.

Lastly, if anyone is interested in assisting me with soliciting donations (either ads or raffle items), work for a company looking to donate to a wonderful cause, have wonderful and generous contacts that may be in interested in supporting EHH that you would be willing to share with me or send them information about us for support, please let me know.  This event has grown every year…and I’d like it to continue to do so….but I need YOUR help to keep it going.   I am amazed at the amount of new friends I meet every year, simply by them finding out about EHH via my facebook page or through other friends and wanting to help in some way and be a part of EHH.  We are blessed! Thank you so much for all your support.
