Upcoming and Current Events

Right now our Kimberly's Hope Valentine's Day program is in full swing! You can 'adopt' a little fighter for Valentine's Day and send them a card and a small gift (teddy bear, book, etc.).

You can also sign your little fighter up for our Kimberly's Hope program so they can be adopted throughout the year! Contact Mariesha with your child's name, age, address and sibling information to sign up.
Please contact Mariesha at fightcancer@battle4acure.org to 'adopt' a fighter or to sign up your little fighter!

Our Sewing for a Cure project is also in full swing! We are taking donations of cotton fabric to be sewn into handmade quilts to auction off on our facebook page. Our goal is to raise the remaining money we need to file our 501(c)(3) paperwork. Each adult quilt will start at $100 and each child's quilt will start at $50. We hope to have the first group of ten up for auction before Valentine's Day. This deadline depends on how many fabric donations we receive over the next week. If you would like to donate fabric or have questions about this project please email Mariesha at mars@battle4acure.org

AUSTIN, TEXAS: We are also in the beginning stages of planning our Spring Yard Sale! Our Winter Yard Sale raised over $700 for toys and shipping! We are hoping our Spring Yard Sale will bring in even more funds for our shipping costs and toy costs!
To Donate items for the Yard Sale please contact Amanda at amanda@battle4acure.org or Sarah at sarah@battle4acure.org. We are accepting any and all items!

Date is TBD. We'll post as soon as we have something set!

Updated Contact Info!

Hey everyone! It's been a while since we've updated anything. I wanted to give you all some updated info/contact information.
For a long time all requests and emails have to come battle4acure@gmail.com. These days we have a Board of Directors that are very involved with everything going on, so you will find their contact info below.

Sarah updates most of the posts/prayer requests on the facebook page. She is also very involved with everything else. Feel free to contact her at sarah@battle4acure.org with anything concerning the facebook page or just general questions.

Dena does all of our Hope Boxes. If you would like to sign your little fighter up to receive a Hope Box you'll want to email Dena at dena@battle4acure.org with your child's name, age, address and sibling information. Dena is also working on our Sewing for a Cure quilts project, so feel free to contact her with any questions concerning that.

Mariesha heads up our Kimberly's Hope program in memory of our friend Kimberly Shaw. This program enables volunteers to "adopt" children throughout the year and send them cards and gifts. To sign your child up for this program or to "adopt" a little fighter you will want to contact Mariesha at mars@battle4acure.org. (Mars is a childhood nickname that is a lot easier to spell :D) Mariesha is also working with Dena on the Quilt project, so you can contact her about that as well.

Amanda is still answering the emails that come through the battle4acure@gmail.com. We're trying to transition everything over, so if you have any questions or concerns for Amanda please contact her at amanda@battle4acure.org.

We will be updating the blog on all of the new projects that we're up to in the next few days so keep an eye out for those!

We would like to thank each and every person who has helped us become the organization that we are today; your generosity, love and support does not go unnoticed. We love you all and appreciate you standing with us during this journey.
