Hi, I'm Hazel. Welcome to my page for Little Hands, Big Hearts! This all started in first grade. I wanted to raise money for children in need. I asked the school if I could put a collection jar in the front office, and they said yes! I put a collection jar in the office so people could throw in loose change so that I could donate it to children at a nearby hospital. In second grade, AKA my second annual fundraiser, I collected donations from the whole school! The class that raised the most money won a root beer float party! The next year, third grade, I got my first sponsor, Luke’s Donuts! They gave the winning class donuts! This year I came across Mary Bridge and I’m so excited to work with them to help the children they are caring for. And now we’re here, but I couldn't do it on my own. I did it with the help of my family, school, and of course YOU! And I am so grateful for everything you all did to help me get here and help others in need! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
Where does the money go after it's donated?
Where The Need Is Greatest is an unrestricted and flexible fund, supporting our children’s greatest medical needs. With the help of community donors, Where The Need Is Greatest supports healthier children and families by funding a variety of programs and services at Mary Bridge Children’s that would not be possible without generous contributions. Programs and services include: Bridges Center for Grieving Children, Child Life Services, Tree House: A Place for Families and more.
Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital serves more than 250,000 children every year and depends on the generosity of the community to provide lifesaving care and services. About 65% of children served are on Medicaid – and even the best insurance has gaps in coverage. This fundraiser will ensure that all kids get the care and healing they need at Mary Bridge, regardless of ability to pay.
100% of all money raised is donated to Where The Need Is Greatest at Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital. Donations will be accepted any time but I hope to reach our goal by the end of March!
