A Disneyland promise….

Im going to Las Vegas for fun with some friends in March. Someone heard about my trip and told me about an organization in the area that supports children who have been diagnosed with cancer. One of their staff members said that many of the kids have not had the chance to go to Disneyland. When I was a kid my dad took me to Disney…

20 kids, 20 promises

On September 4th, 2012, my father died of small cell lung cancer. He was always good with his promises, so at his funeral I handed out promise cards for the first time. I cannot handle the thought of these children never getting the chance to go to Disneyland, so I am making a promise of my own…

I will raise enough money to purchase 20 hopper passes to Disneyland. On March 21st, I will fly to Las Vegas and personally deliver them to the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada. If I cannot manage to raise enough money to buy these tickets by March 21st, I will pay for them myself. I am sorry that life has been so unkind to you. I hope that these tickets can provide you with some sort of happiness as you go through your journey.

See you soon, Kelly.

I mailed all of these cards to Nevada. Usually you get the promise card back after you fulfill your promise. These kids shouldn’t have to waste their time returning a card to me. I wrote one extra card addressed to a staff member and figure I can at least get this one back.

I miss you, Dad.

Each ticket costs $120, but a donation of any amount is greatly appreciated. The “donate” button directly below this text is a specific link that funds this project only.
