#GivingTuesday

#GivingTuesday is December 3: How are you planning to give back??

 
Think CHERUBS this #GivingTuesday


Just in case you haven't heard all the fuss over the last few weeks, #GivingTuesday is this Tuesday, December 3.  What is #GivingTuesday?

It is a day created to GIVE BACK.  It's that simple.  We just spent a long weekend focusing on how thankful we are for what we have followed by a couple intense days of shopping.  'Tis the season for giving. So why not give to a charity that has touched us all so deeply.  If you give in any way on December 3, then you have participated in #GivingTuesday.

National Children's Memorial Day

 
Candles will be lit at 7:00 pm in all time zones so that there will be constant light around the world in memory of our children in Heaven.
 
The 2013 National Children's Memorial Day is Sunday, December 8th. At 7:00 pm in each time zone, people will be lighting candles to remember all children lost.

The World Census Bureau estimates that in 2008 over 350,000 babies were born in the world every day = 147 babies will be born with CDH every day. That is OVER 53,000 BABIES BORN EACH YEAR WITH CDH. Over 26,000 do not survive. Help CHERUBS fight CDH.

Over a half million babies have been affected by Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia since 2000. This means that over a quarter of a million babies have have been lost to this devastating birth defect. Over 800 babies are lost to CDH in the United States alone each year.
