Here at Daniel’s Care Van, we ended 2019 driving a few new brave kiddos and delivering Daniel’s Sparkly Lights before Christmas. This year, we’re so honored to have expanded the Sparkly Lights program to young adults battling cancer through an alliance with the Small Choices Foundation. See pictures below. We’re looking forward to 2020 and we’re so grateful to have you all along for the ride. Please consider us in your plan for charitable giving in the new year. Every little bit helps to keep us on the road Transporting the Brave!
GivingTuesday is a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. As the holiday shopping season gets into full swing, GivingTuesday is an opportunity to re-direct some of the season’s spending toward charitable causes.
Give the Gift of Transportation
A small gift of just $25 can provide a ride to a child or young adult cancer patient who needs a safe and reliable way to get to their treatment appointments. On this GivingTuesday, consider sponsoring one of Daniel’s Care Van’s brave riders.
Our Brave Riders Thank you!
With Thanksgiving just a few days away, we wanted to take a moment to list a few things we’re grateful for this year and every year.
1) First and foremost, we’re grateful for every brave rider we drive. If we had one wish, it would be that there would be no need for what we do — that kids would not get sick in the first place. Until that time comes, we’re grateful for the opportunity to make a difference.
What a month Transporting the Brave! Our brave riders have kept us very busy in all sorts of weather. We did 22 runs last month, with three done by volunteer drivers. Our schedule includes several kiddos who are actively in treatment, in recovery from bone marrow transplant, or going to off-treatment follow ups. Every one of our young riders faces challenges in their fight against cancer, and we’re honored to help alleviate at least one worry for them. You can help by sponsoring a ride — click below for options!
This is our brave warrior, Fatima, who is battling a brain tumor. She is one of 4 new riders we’ve driven this month, along with our regular kiddos. As many of you already know, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. We definitely do not need a special month to remind us of this awful disease — we live with the reality every day — but this month did remind us of the bigger picture of childhood cancer. 46 kids are diagnosed with cancer every day. We know we can’t help them all, but we also know that we can make a difference for the ones who need us. When you sponsor a ride for kids like Fatima, you are helping us in our mission of Transporting the Brave.
