Where Your Giving Goes.

We give 100% of publicly donated funds to projects and organizations that make a significant difference in the life of a child.  More specifically, the following will benefit from your generous giving:

Cancer Climber Association - Mobile Camp

cclogoYou're helping fund the Cancer Climber Association's innovative "portable" camp that will tour the United States, stopping at children's hospitals in twenty-four cities around the country. Every stop will offer a three-day camp providing children and families touched by cancer with an incredible opportunity to experience life to the fullest. The CCA will offer those participating the chance to climb a portable wall, watch movies, play games, learn about cancer related topics, and share stories with people who can relate, including cancer survivor, climber, and CCA co-founder, Sean Swarner. The tour will also offer counseling to patients and families.  All free of charge.

Co-Founder Sean Swarner was diagnosed with two different and unrelated forms of cancer, once at the age of thirteen and again at the age of sixteen. Despite a prognosis of just fourteen days to live and having been read his cc2logolast rites, Sean astounded the medical community when he survived both these brutal diseases. Sean realized that after defeating cancer twice, no challenge would ever be too great, no peak too high.  Sean proved his theory when he crested the peak of the highest point in the world -- Mount Everest -- with only partial use of his lungs. As the first cancer survivor to do so, Sean decided to continue climbing and has since topped the highest peaks in Africa, Europe, South America, Australia, Antarctica, and North America, thus completing the “7 Summits”.

Show Hope - Adoption Grants

We can't think of a better way to impact a child in need than by giving them a permanent home in which to live and thrive.  Your generous giving will go to providing adoption grants through Show Hope.

Founded by GRAMMY winner Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife, Mary Beth, Show Hope initially began out of the Chapmans’ desire to see more children find their way into forever families.  Though many families they talked to were willing to adopt, the financial costs of adoption were simply too high.  Originally named after the Chapmans’ first adopted daughter, Shaohannah Hope, Shaohannah’s Hope has grown far beyond the initial vision of helping a few orphans find homes.  dickinsonSince it's inception, Show Hope has awarded over 2,000 financial grants to help families pay for the high cost of adoption.  These orphans have come from 44 different countries, both domestic and international.  In June of 2009, Show Hope opened Maria’s Big House of Hope (MBHOH), a six story, 60,000 square foot special needs care facility in Luoyang China.  MBHOH offers medical care, treatment and surgeries for sick and terminally ill orphans in that region of the country.  The facility serves up to 120 orphans (infant – 5 years old) and employs nurses, nannies, and a surgeon on staff.

 

Individual Families in Need - Financial Assistance

When your child is sick, your world stops.  All that you know and all that you can see is your child, your family, and a disease. It’s like climbing a mountain – all you can do is put one foot in front of another, day after day, and hope that at some point you’ll be able to see the top. Your reality is completely encompassed by your surroundings, and life stands still.

The rest of the world however, keeps moving forward.  Incomes must still be earned, mortgages still need to be paid, bills still require attention.

While we can’t take the stress, fear, and pain of childhood illness away, we can still do something.  Our goal is to relieve significant financial burdens for families so that they can focus on what really matters: family.  Whether it is covering a few mortgage payments or allowing a parent to cut back on their time at work, we want to help alleviate additional stress in any way possible. Through our relationships with hospitals, churches, and local charities, we identify families with the biggest needs.  Your donation provides the gift of compassion when families need it most.
