2019 Nicholas Giving Tree Project

2019 Nicholas Giving Tree Project

We are hosting our 6th Nicholas Holiday Giving Tree Project.  If you are interested in this kind of giving directly toward a Batten Family here are items that will be needed for the packages. These children all have a fatal neurodegenerative brain disease and some of the families have more than one child with this disease.  We are sending small "shoe box size" care packages to the families. The boxes are actually priority mail boxes which will be shipped at a flat rate and they are the size of a shoe box. Sizes of the items are small so many items can fit into the boxes. These items requested are items the families use to take care of their sick child daily or bring to the hospital, gift cards- so they can purchase items they need (such as over the counter medications or toiletrees), also gift cards to purchase a cup of coffee! The packages will be mailed out December 13 for the holiday.

We know these holiday care packages do bring these families a feeling of love and joy during a season which can be stressful for everyone but especially caring for a medically fragile child. Thank you for your support! 

Deadline for Drop off is December 11.  I will be putting the packages together over the week- to be mailed on December 13.  Please drop off items early: For my address- email me or private message me on facebook and I will send you my address. Shipping itmes it will need to be sent directly to my house.  If you are purchasing gift cards you can mail them to me at Our Promise to Nicholas Foundation PO Box 10106, Bedford, NH 03110.

If your shopping for items listed- many can be found at Walmart, Target, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens and Amazon. No donation is too small for your gift toward this project. 

Kindness Always Makes a Difference. You all inspire me- thank you for opening your hearts to these families who have children with Batten Disease. 

EASTERN BANK- 1 Atwood Lane, Bedford NH- They are hosting a tree with our tags. If you want to remain anonymous in your donation consider choosing a tag off the tree and return your gift to the bank. Thank you.

 

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
