We are so excited to announce that with our year-end giving in 2021, we surpassed $1 million given to the Pinky Swear Foundation! We have been working with the Pinky Swear Foundation since 2015 and we are proud to be longtime partners with such an incredible organization.
The Pinky Swear Foundation was founded on a pinky swear promise as a dying wish between a nine-year-old boy and his father to help children with cancer and their families by providing support for immediate basic needs and unique family programs. When a child is diagnosed with cancer, life is turned upside down for the entire family. Daily necessities and tasks such as work, cooking meals, grocery shopping and laundry are extremely difficult to balance both financially and emotionally as treatment becomes a family’s primary concern.
Since the beginning, our funding has supported Pinky Swear's Orange Envelope Program. This program provides care packages including gift cards and resource guides for families and children battling cancer to help them receive further assistance for necessities like rent, mortgages, groceries and more.
Our funding of $1,011,207 to date has been able to help make a difference for 5,556 families with children battling cancer, and we couldn't have reached this milestone without you!
