Earlier this year, we asked you to vote for the charity that you wanted to receive our donations. And with your help, we have officially chosen the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Delaware (CCCFD) as our charity for 2018!
What is the CCCFD?
The CCCFD is a non-profit organization that receives their funding entirely from members, friends, parents of patients, and contributors like you. Established in 1997 to help improve the quality of life for children with cancer, the CCCFD provides funding for kids who are being treated at the A.I Dupont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, DE.
The CCCFD gives children goods and gifts to help them enjoy their stay at the hospital. One of their first projects was donating a TV and VCR to the oncology department so that the kids could watch shows and movies every day. Since then, they have continued to offer new gifts and complete new projects to help children keep their minds off of their illnesses.
This organization is very close to the heart of our founder, Barbara D. MacAdam, because her daughter, who unfortunately passed away from cancer, was treated at the A.I Dupont Hospital for Children for a year.
And to give back to the place that did so much for her daughter, Barbara ultimately decided on this organization. Funding for the CCCFD will go directly to the children in the oncology department at the hospital.
What You Can Do to Donate
This year, we give you not just one, but two ways to give back to the CCCFD:
Every time a new person likes our Facebook page, Barbara will make a $1 donation to the CCCFD (up to $1,000). If 1,000 people like our page, we could make a serious dent in our donation goal. And all it takes is the touch of a button.
This year give back to an organization that does so much for children in need. By purchasing a blessing or liking our page, you can make a significant difference. To learn more about our goals, our message, and our blessing gifts, call us today at 609-605-5880.
Every year at PurpleWishingGate.com we select a non-profit organization to donate 10% of our proceeds to. We are thrilled to renew our commitment by partnering with “Camp Can Do” for the year 2022. We are proud to be a company that donates when you buy one of our blessing gifts.
Much like everything else during this Pandemic, the traditional role of the teacher is morphing into something new and unexpected. Like the pioneers of old, they’re forging the way through frontiers both exciting and scary, while being expected to lead our children on a journey through uncharted territory.
This Christmas, PurpleWishingGate.com will be purchasing $25 Visa Gift Cards for every child living on the Pediatric Oncology Ward, and all those treating at the chemo out-patient clinic at the A.I. Dupont Hospital for Children in Wilmington, DE! Want to help? We are once again, coordinating our "Like Us On Facebook" campaign with our Christmas Gift donations, and all we ask is that you spread the word to help us reach our goal of 5,000 likes by Christmas!
