BREAKING CDH RESEARCH NEWS:
Last December we held a Facebook contest and you voted for your favorite Research Center to get a $10,000 CDH Research Grant. We were able to give away 2 grants for $10,000 each thanks to all your help selling 50/50 CDH Raffle tickets and thanks to 1 determined family who raised $10,000 in memory of their daughter! $10,000 went to The Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment at CHOP and $10,000 went to DHREAMS Research Study (Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia).
Our goal is to sell 1000 more 50/50 CDH Raffle tickets to raise another $10,000 and to work together to raise an additional $15,000 through fundraisers and firstgiving pages. Think we can do it? Want to give $25,000 in CDH Research Grants this December? We sure do!!!
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
- Purchase tickets
- Sell paper tickets by
- Hold a fundraiser by
- Create a Firstgiving Page in honor/memory of your cherub
It's not hard to help! We had several families sell over 50 tickets each and we have had 2 families raise over $10,000 on Firstgiving and one who raised $25,000! If all of us work together on this we can far exceed our goal and raise a lot of money for CDH Research!
100% money raised through fundraisers and Firstgiving will go CDH Research Grants. 50% of money raised through raffle ticket sales will CDH Research Grants, the remaining 50% goes to the raffle winner. CHERUBS is not keeping one dime off of this project for any of our own funds. We want to end the year by funding CDH Research and helping to find the cause and prevention of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.
