H.O.P.E. Totebag Project

   CHERUBS H.O.P.E. (Helping Other Parents Expecting) Totebag Program assists families expecting babies born with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia by providing them with much needed free information and support items through a community project in which all CDH families can participate and honor their children while helping new families affected by Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.
   Donated items are collected by our members, CDH families and friends and put together into totebags by volunteers.  Totebags are then mailed to families who are expecting babies born with CDH or who have newborns still hospitalized and battling Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.
 
HOPE Totebag Donation
$50.00
   Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) is a devastating birth defect that affects 1 in every 2500 babies.   CDH occurs when the diaphragm fails to fully form, allowing abdominal organs into the chest cavity and preventing lung growth.  The cause is not known.   
 
   Over 100 new and expectant CDH parents join CHERUBS each year.   This project was created for them, to help them through the first few weeks and months in dealing with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia.

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.
