Having a child who suffers from a chronic or terminal illness, or has sustained an injury, is difficult enough without having to worry about the financial costs that come with it. However, those costs are an unfortunate reality for many families locally, regionally and nationally.

The All for the Kids Fund was established to help children suffering from a chronic or terminal illness or an injury in conjunction with National ALL for the KIDS Day on May 15th. Often, with limited resources, families & organizations are doing everything in their power to provide the highest level of care and comfort for their loved ones. This fund will assist programs & families who are financially struggling to help their child who is chronically or terminally ill or who may be suffering from an injury.
A mom shared this story, “The day my daughter was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney disease was a moment of sheer terror and confusion. Everything I knew and believed was tested. Getting to soccer practice on time suddenly seemed trivial. Testing, medical procedures, medications, hospitalization, learning medical lingo and putting on that brave face for my child puts you in a place you never thought you would be. The fear of outcomes and the everyday anxiety tied to uncertainty can be debilitating. With the help of organizations, like the Spano Foundation, and All for The Kids Day, I know that there is a whole community of individuals and organizations that understand that my daughter, and kids like her, thrive when they know they are not alone and there are opportunities for support.” -Cristina N. of Hilliard, Ohio
The fund’s goal is to raise at least $15,000, to start, so we are able to help assist programs and families caring for their chronically or terminally ill children, or to help those who have children who have suffered from an injury. Additionally, proceeds from the selling of all apparel promoting National All for the Kids Day will benefit this fund while helping to create awareness for the ongoing struggles for these families and children.
You can help to spread the message and support the fund by making a donation, or purchasing apparel, by visiting AllForKidsDay.org, sharing on social media, and by purchasing apparel and take a photo wearing the items and sharing it on social media throughout the year. The more that people share the more we can raise awareness for this great cause. Donate Now at www.spanofoundation.com/kids.
