With the holiday season approaching, we thank you for keeping CURE in your thoughts. There are many ways you can help CURE this season:
The designs feature photo and non-photo options, each with the ability to customize the printed message on the outside and inside of each card. Each card features a message on the back of the card, talking about CURE’s work and informing the recipient that a portion of the proceeds of that Holiday card was donated to CURE!
When you order by 2pm, the cards print and ship out the same day! Cards are printed and mailed from Atlanta, GA. Prices vary depending on the number of cards ordered and the style of card selected. To view and purchase cards, please click here.
For many families battling childhood cancer, the holidays can be particularly difficult. The financial burdens of battling this disease often make it difficult to celebrate with gifts and special meals. That’s where CURE – and some of our special, generous supporters – step in to help give these families a memorable holiday season. As part of CURE’s Holiday Angels program, we work with social workers at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to find families in-need. CURE supporters are assigned a family and purchase gifts.
With the purpose of inspiring giving at a young age, when you begin decorating for the holidays each year, your children will find their Santa Sack and fill it with several gently used toys from their own toy box to donate to a deserving child. Take your children to a local charity to make the donation and start the holiday off on the right foot. Christmas morning, the Santa Sack will appear under the tree filled with gifts from Santa. A pocket on the front of the Sack is perfect for writing a Christmas list or note to Santa, or for Santa to write a note for your child. To purchase the Santa Sack, click here.
