Humor For Hope: The Starting Fund
First, I want to say thank you.
Thank you for your support, for your encouragement, and for your belief in Humor for Hope and future lives we will impact together. Rooted in deep passion for terminally and chronically ill children, my dream is to use and teach improv therapy to shine hope into darkness and bring laughter back into the lives of those in suffering. This dream was born from a perfect collision of my innate gifts and personal circumstances, but it was brought to life by my community's unwavering support. Because your hands have helped shape this journey and brought me to where I am today, I want to make sure you are the first to know about the exciting future ahead. Humor for Hope (H4H) is in the process of become an officially registered charity.
H4H uses improv and sketch comedy as a form of inpatient therapy for terminally and chronically ill children in hospitals. Our programs enable children confined to isolation the opportunity to laugh as a means of emotional and physical healing. We work with families of these children by relieving the emotional stress by gifting them with regular and sustained laughter as a means of coping.
By July 3rd, 2015, we are aiming to launch nationally with a campaign to raise funds for our first year of operations to make this form of healing a reality for families and hospitals nationwide.
In order to get there, we need your help to lay the first bricks of our organization. To prepare for the national launch and establishing as a 501(c)3 we need to raise $15,000 by July 3rd, 2015 . Please join with us in taking the first step to changing the face of terminal pediatric healthcare. Would you consider giving today?
Today - the best way to support this effort is to either donate directly or to set up a fundraising page, it's easy, pinky promise! We believe in the power of community and have set up a team effort to hit this fundraising goal.
