As you know, I am preparing to become a Bar Mitzvah on October 22, 2016 and really excited!
An important part of my studies involves tikkun olam – repairing our world and participating in Tzedakah – social action. With this in mind, I chose to combine my passion of being a dedicated lacrosse goalie with my compassion to help children in need – creating “GOALIE’S GOALS.” A fundraising idea that combines my love of saving goals on the field while raising funds and awareness for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation (PCF) off of the field. Sometimes words are not enough, and we all need to act.
If you are not familiar with PCF, here are the facts: Pediatric Cancer is the #1 cause of non-accidental death in children. Every year more than 12,000 infants and children are diagnosed with cancer. Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s mission is to find a cure for childhood cancer. Founded in 1970, this non-profit charity raises money for research, state of the art equipment/ instruments and patient/parent care for world renowned doctors at the hospitals PCF supports. Today, PCF supports five major hospitals in the tristate area, including their satellite outreach programs. With the inclusion of advanced technological equipment, doctors are in communication with hospitals both nationally as well as on an international level. With my help and yours, PCF strives for continued efforts at growth and advancement in this field, to not only cure but to provide a normal life for children with cancer.
GOALIE’S GOALS… every save counts. Every penny counts. Every child in need counts.
I am dedicating my summer lacrosse play with my Prime Time lacrosse team with a personal Goalie’s Goal to raise awareness among my family and friends, and raise funds to help fight pediatric cancer.
I am asking for your support. Your tax deductible contribution will help our community step up the fight against pediatric cancer. There are 3 ways to donate:
- Please donate an Amount Per Goal Saved (FYI — approximately 25 games this summer, last game to be held on July 10th), and I will let you know of the total saves and total amount to be donated by Friday, July 25th. For example, with a donation of $.25 per goal saved, x 100 (saves anticipated) = $25 donation. Check to be payable to Pediatric Cancer Foundation, P.O. Box 785, Mamaroneck, NY 10543 and please write “Goalie’s Goals” in the memo section.
*PLEASE EMAIL MY MOM, NANCY, AT firstname.lastname@example.org WITH THE AMOUNT PER GOAL*
- Please send a check with your desired donation, payable to Pediatric Cancer Foundation, P.O. Box 785, Mamaroneck, NY 10543 and please write “Aidan Goalies Goals” in the memo section
