As you may know, the month of September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month & NICU Awareness Month. We are so excited to host this fundraising opportunity, and make an impact in the lives of children! With EACH set of cards purchased, not only will you be able to send some "happy mail" to those you love and care about, but you will be donating books, activities, resources, & funds to local hospitals to support the children there in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness & NICU Awareness Month!
Neonatal Intensive Care Awareness (NICA) Month is designed to honor families and the challenges they are facing in neonatal intensive care units and aims to increase awareness for the health professionals who care for them and expand resources to NICUs across the country.
Each year in the U.S., an estimated 15,780 children aged 0-19 are diagnosed with cancer. Approximately 1 in 285 Children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer before their 20th birthday. Globally there are more than 300,000 children diagnosed with cancer each year. 20% of children with cancer in the U.S. will not survive it. Every 3 minutes a family hears the devastating words that their child has been diagnosed with cancer. Cancer remains the #1 cause of death by disease for children in America.
Usborne Books & More has so many books and activities that can brighten the days and lift the spirits of children and families in pediatric or NICU care. It is our goal to get as many of these resources and funding that we can into the children's hospitals of Iowa..and we need your help!
How does this work? Purchase a box (or 2, or 3) of 30 cards for $30 (+$2.10 tax). Usborne will give back $13 dollars from every box purchased, and that will be used to purchase a variety of books and activities for local children's hospitals & NICU's.
These beautiful, handmade cards are an incredible value at only $1 each (with $2.10 in tax per box). They easily compare with the $5 cards you find in gift shops.
Please note: I will place the order for the cards at the end of our fundraising campaign then dis tribute the cards the following week.
