Charity Funds Critically Low

CHERUBS' funds are critically low and we are under threat of closing our doors after 22 years. 

 

CDH is incredibly unfunded as compared to most causes (see below). 

 

CHERUBS has worked hard to raise money, awareness, research and provide services to 1000's of families.  But we cannot continue without your help.  Even with an 8% overhead, we still cannot meet the needs of the CDH community and services have been cut.  We have made incredible strides in the fight against Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia in the past few years.  Please join us this Sunday, April 30, 2017, in our first (and hopefully not last) CHERUBS CDH Telethon on Facebook.

* $10,000 covers 1 newsletter mailing to families in the US
* $25,000 covers CHERUBS CDH Research programming and security
* $30,000 covers 1 newsletter mailing to all 5800 families globally

It takes a lot to run an international charity. Only 1% of our members are able to give back. Our budget is currently only $200,000 to help 6100 families annually and there are so many services that we need to provide but cannot. Every single dollar helps families directly.

CDH International Telethon on April 19th

On CDH Awareness Day, April 19th, CDH International interviewed families, researchers, doctors and volunteers as they all shared stories, tears and trials as we raised awareness and money for Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia via live video on Facebook.  We had guests live from around the globe, truly an international day of CDH Awarneess.  The goal was to reach $50,000 over 15 hours during a live Facebook telethon.  Donors were able to make a donation by calling in, donating on any of the member's Facebook telethon fundraisers or directly on the website.  As the telethon closed, CDH International surpassed the goal bringing in $51,388.  This number is on the rise, where the final total will be announced on April 30th.  Facebook fundraisers for the telethon are still ongoing and the charity waits for any checks arriving by mail.
