It's time to start planning for our Annual Holiday Toy Drive!!
This year looks a little different in terms of in-kind donations but that isn't stopping anyone at The WOCF!!
We need YOUR help! If you know a business or group that would like to help us collect new, unwrapped toys OR gift cards to purchase toys please let us know. Our drive will run during the month of December.
The WOCF provides everything you need:
💜 Collection boxes
💜 Help with social media promotion
💜 Shout out on our website
All toys will be donated to WakeMed Children's and all gift cards will be donated to UNC Children's - North Carolina Children's Hospital
The gift of a new toy, game or craft can mean the world to a child fighting cancer. Toys provide a few minutes of joy in the midst of chaos.
This initiative was started by William, himself, when he was still alive. We continue this mission to honor his time on Earth and to glorify his time in Heaven.
Please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping!
We hope you can join us!
We had so much success with our virtual shopping event that we've teamed up with Kendra Scott again for a Holiday Shopping Experience!
Stay tuned for details!
We've hit a hard milestone here at The WOCF. It has been 10 years since we lost William.
As we begin another letter campaign, we are reminded of how much work still needs to be done to help researchers find a cure. We are reminded that only 4% of the federal budget for cancer research is given to pediatric cancer research. We are reminded that, in the last 20 years, only two drugs have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of pediatric cancer.
Because of generous donors like you we have raised over $230,000.00 for childhood cancer research at UNC Children’s Hospital. In our recent conversations with Dr. Ian Davis (William’s oncologist) we learned that he is another step closer to beginning a clinical trial for promising treatments he has been researching.
UNC Children’s Hospital treats over 70,000 children in all 100 counties in North Carolina, many of whom are fighting cancer. In partnership with other agencies, UNC Children's Hospital has over 250 clinical trials ongoing for childhood cancer.
Please consider donating to The Wide Open Charitable Foundation and help us provide hope to the families with kids fighting cancer. All of the money raised from this campaign will be donated.
We are a nonprofit in Raleigh that focuses on raising money for the research of Neuroblastoma and Childhood Cancers while offering support and hope to the families with children battling these diseases.
Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help us with fundraising events, toy drives and more!
100% of donations received will fund childhood cancer research at UNC Children's Hospital. The Wide Open Charitable Foundation is a registered IRS 501 C3 nonprofit.
