Family & Friends,
During the Pandemic, I decided to become an advocate for the children in San Diego who are in need of medical care by joining The Rady's Children Hospital Auxiliary, Scripps Ranch Unit. The Scripps Ranch Unit has an annual fundraiser, “Cheers for Children’s” which due to COVID restrictions cannot be held live this year. In lou of the event, I have created a Miracle Makers page to raise much needed funds that will benefit the Medical Behavioral Unit (MBU) and Eating Disorders at Rady Children’s Hospital; the only child and adolescent medical/behavioral inpatient unit in San Diego.
I understand that these are hard times for everyone, so please if you cannot contribute, do not feel obligated!! I encourage you to pass along this information to anyone you think may be interested in helping these kids. On the other hand, if you feel like this cause is important to you also and you are able to contribute during these crazy times, please consider a tax deductible donation. These kids need our help and Net proceeds will be matched as part of the Hospital’s Philanthropy Match Program!
Did you know that nearly 190,000 children in San Diego will develop some type of behavioral health disorder? The pandemic has shined an even larger spotlight on the mental health crisis that our nation’s children face. Join us by raising funds that ensure that every child facing a mental or behavioral health challenge can live to his or her fullest potential. The effects of sheltering in place on children are life-altering. When children are not in school, concerned adults do not have the opportunity to observe and intervene when help is needed. The number of children needing medical help have gone through the roof since the pandemic started.
Rady Children’s is a non-profit organization that relies on support from the community to provide world-class care for nearly 250,000 kids and families each year.
Thank you for continuing to show others WE SEE YOU & WE CARE.
For the kids!
