Did You Know September Is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month?

Every day, 42 families in the United States will receive the devastating news that their child or teen has cancer.

What would you do if that were your child?

Through our Gifts of Love program, Chix 4 a Cause has helped families of children as young as two years old who were diagnosed with cancer.

Gifts of Love are unique to each cancer patient’s needs and help improve their emotional well-being. Typical Gifts include mortgage or rent assistance, gas or grocery cards, a family weekend away, theater or concert tickets, or taxi or bus passes. Gifts of Love can go a long way toward improving a patient’s quality of life at a time when help is needed not only due to mounting medical bills, but also as they struggle with the realities of a cancer diagnosis.

Volunteer your time or provide a monetary donation to our Gifts of Love program today at http://www.chix4acause.org. On behalf of cancer patients in your community, we thank you for your generosity.

Celebrate International Day of Charity by Donating to Chix 4 a Cause

Did you know that September 5th is International Day of Charity?

In 2012, the United Nations decided to honor the work that charities do to improve people’s lives by creating an official day of recognition and celebration. September 5th was chosen because it’s the anniversary of the death of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who tirelessly devoted her life to charity work.

Join us in this international celebration by volunteering or providing a monetary donation to Chix 4 a Cause. You’ll help cancer patients in your community through our Gifts of Love program.

Gifts of Love are unique to each cancer patient’s needs and help improve their emotional well-being. Typical Gifts include mortgage or rent assistance, gas or grocery cards, a family weekend away, theater or concert tickets, or taxi or bus passes. Gifts of Love can go a long way toward improving a patient’s quality of life at a time when help is needed not only due to mounting medical bills, but also as they struggle with the realities of a cancer diagnosis.
