Hello everyone,

Tom and Kim were working on a DVD about how Blair’s Tree of Hope 501c3 Non-Profit started and they talking about how many wonderful Non-profits are out there that help so many families and we wanted to do a shout out to each of them…. We are not each others competitors as we are all serving one goal and that is to raise funds for Childhood Cancer Research, Awareness and/or providing families with financial assistance, fun trips, cool shoes, pajamas, hats, crafts and much more…

Thank you to HopeKids, KidsCanMn, The Pinky Swear Foundation, Kickin Cancer for Adrian, Szott Foundation, Helping Hands, SpareKey, Doing Good Together, The Nick Reamer Osteosarcoma Foundation, Wishes & More, Ty Barberine Foundation, Zach/ Laura Sobiech?, Love Your Melon, Faiths Lodge, Momcology (MN), Alex’s Lemonade Run/Fundraiser (MN), Mary Moon Foundation, The Brain Candy Project and Kaely’s Kindness Foundation, Designing Dreams, Make a Wish and Sweet Dreams for Kids and many others…
