On January 28th 2013 Kidz b Kidz will be having an Art Part that could help save a 4 year old boy’s life.
Kidz b Kidz (KbK) is a non-profit organization powered by kids and mentored by adults. They teach children about empathy and the importance of helping others simply by drawing a picture at KbK Art Parties. They inspire kids to create heartfelt artwork that is used on “KbK Products with Purpose”. These products are sold to foster healing and comfort in a child’s hospital experience and to support children who are sick.
Kidz b Kidz is having an “I love Filipe” Fundraiser from January 28th 2013 until Valentine’s Day, February 14th. What better way to say I love you then by saving a sick child’s life with Cookies that Care!
Filipe is a Brazilian 4-year-old boy who came to the US in November 2011 in hopes that a chemo drug available here and not in Brazil would help treat his cancer (LCH) and make him well. After being seen by top experts at Dana Farber Cancer Institute and having a liver biopsy, the doctors determined that the urgent need was for Filipe to have a liver transplant. His liver is affected by both the LCH and his secondary disease (Sclerosing Cholangitis). The ONLY chance for him to survive is a lifesaving liver transplant. There is no cure for his diseases. Unfortunately Filipe is not eligible for health insurance here in the US. Massachusetts General Hospital has estimated that the family will need $509,970.00 for the liver transplant, and related medical expenses. They have currently raised about $300,000 and our push is to help in raising the last $200,000. For more info: http://www.helpfilipe.com/
On January 28th Kidz b Kidz (KbK) will gather at the Newman Elementary School in Needham, MA and will all draw hearts in honor of Filipe to let him know we love him and support him. For those who can’t be at Newman, Kidz b Kidz (KbK) would like to encourage you to draw hearts from wherever you are and send them to Kidz b Kidz at firstname.lastname@example.org or directly upload your Artwork to www.kidzbkidz.org and click on the upload artwork link.
Kidz b Kidz (KbK) will take every heart drawing and post them in their KbK online gallery where anyone around the country can purchase Wicked Good Kidz b Kidz Cookies decorated with the heart drawings and give them as a “heartfelt” gift to pay for Filipe’s liver transplant.
