Today, November 28th, 2017, is #GivingTuesday! Entering its sixth year, #GivingTuesday is a day to be part of a national celebration of generosity supported by the power of social media and collaboration.
It’s a day to give a gift that makes an impact – right here in our own community. We are asking you to participate by donating to Sutton’s Toy Drive and the hundreds of kids that spend time in a Children’s Hospital bed. It’s quite easy to influence a child’s life. Your donation really can make a difference for a lifetime because every act of kindness or generosity makes a ripple.
If you are a shopper, we have bins in local small businesses throughout the town for you to drop off your donation.
Mirage Pool N Spa 7422 W Clearwater Ave Kennewick

During my research, I came across one simple fact that can instantly change a child’s life and family dynamics. Every 30 seconds a child is diagnosed with a serious illness or injury. The leading diagnosis is cancer. This year alone it was estimated that over 15,000 children would be diagnosed with cancer. When a serious diagnosis is given to your child you will undoubtedly find yourself visiting a Children’s Hospital and the staff will become another part of your family. As I have always said, I may not have the power or means to help the level of impact illness may have in a child’s life but I can help create some magic and bring a little joy in the room. We are asking you to help us do that this holiday season.
Kindness is powerful! Share what you did with your friends on Facebook & twitter – use #givingtuesday to help us go viral.
Let’s create a little magic!
