As we are nearing the end of 2013, if you are looking for a non-profit to donate to we would appreciate your donation. Know that your money goes directly to the families as we have no paid employees everyone involved with BTOH is a volunteer including the board members. Because of your donations our foundation Blair’s Tree of Hope has been able to help directly and indirectly up to 6,000 families at both the Minneapolis Children’s and U of MN Amplatz Children’s Hospitals. Blair’s Tree of Hope help the families that the social workers refer to us with either a gas cards, target gift cards, housecleaning, family photos, groceries, indirectly by bringing weekly snacks including toiletries, magazines, bracelet kits, serving Thanksgiving Dinner, monthly crafting events, Pillowcase for the families, quilts and gift bags filled with fun items. We are also asked how groups or families can help BTOH and we have put together the attached flyer with some ideas. If you are interested, contact Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to receive our monthly newsletter send an email to Jessica Crelly at email@example.com. Thank you to the sponsors, companies and people who donated items for our silent auctions and raffles, thank you to our volunteers, thank you to the board members (Ken Waldron, Mary Kay Myrmel, Teri Crelly, Karen Brendal, Deb Lubotina, Melissa Barns, Kim McCabe, Jessica Crelly, Rachel Crelly and Molly McCabe) who give of their time to help us to achieve our goals and our mission of Helping Other People Everyday – HOPE. We are so thankful to all of our family and friends who live in other states who continue to help us spread the word and are always finding ways to raise funds for BTOH.
