You may have seen those cool Orange bracelets around town that say, “Be Original!” This is a project from the mind of John Mandt Jr. His challenge to people is to break out of the norm and be yourself. The 5 Elements of Being Original are: Love Yourself, Help People, Eat Well, Be Active, and Keep Learning! Find out more about this interesting campaign by reading our blog called, “Be Original!”
There is a special place in the Hoops Family Children’s Hospital called Zaine’s Room. This is a special room for parents to get away, sit in a quiet room, read a book, and escape the Hospital and all the stresses of having a sick child. The room is name after Zaine Nelson who died in 2004 due to a congenital heart defect. To honor his birthday each September, we raise money to help improve Zaine’s Room and keep it stocked. Give a special gift to Zaine’s Room and touch the life of a parent struggling with a sick child in the hospital.
When Ethan was 4, he was a very sick little boy. He remembers being at the hospital and being scared and not having any toys. Today, Ethan is almost 10. Each year, he raises money to buy toys for the children who come to the Hoops Family Children’s Hospital. Now, you can help Ethan by giving a special gift to help buy toys for sick kids.
