Groupon Grassroots Update & Other Breaking News!

We did amazing with the Groupon Grassroots fundraiser!  Because of your support, we raised over $3,300 towards the HOPE Totebag program.  100% of the money raised goes directly to CHERUBS for this important program.  Thank you for making this fundraiser (the first of it's kind for CHERUBS) such a success.

Did you know that CHERUBS is offering a scholarship towards college for graduating seniors?  There's still time to apply.  The deadline is June 24th, so get your application in soon!

Did you watch the WGN news on Monday, June 17th?  The CHERUBS IL/WI Representative and his family were featured in a cover story which talked about CDH, CHERUBS, and their 2nd child (due in September) also diagnosed with CDH.

We're in the home stretch of the Groupon Grassroots Totebag Fundraiser

Just in case you haven't heard, CHERUBS has partnered with Groupon Grassroots to launch a fundraiser to help support the HOPE Totebag program.  These totebags are sent to CHERUBS members who are expecting a child with CDH or with one currently in the NICU.  It includes lots of items and information to help with an extended hospital stay (which unfortunately is very common among children who have CDH).

This fundraiser launched last Thursday (5/30) and runs until Sunday, June 9.  The awesome thing about this fundraiser is that Groupon actually absorbs all fees and transactions costs, so 100% of the money raised goes directly to CHERUBS.   100%!!

Donations can be made in increments of $10 with every 5 donations covering the cost of one bag.  There aren't many easier ways to donate to such a worthwhile cause where 100% of the money raised goes to the chosen charity.

Why am I so passionate about this fundraiser?  Here's a blog post I wrote for my friends at RockScar Love called "Death, you messed with the wrong dad AGAIN"

Please consider making a donation.  Thank you very much.
