Raising Money for CHOPS







There are many children who suffer from many diseases and need constant care. Are you aware that so many children suffer from Rare diseases? The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia does research to help care for kids and research the various rare diseases without diagnosis's. So far we raised over $500 at Rare disease day by having a bake sale and auctioning blankets and cards. All the money we raise goes to the the Dupont and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, also known as CHOPS. Making the blankets was very fun for me, because it took several weeks of dedicated work to crochet it. Both my mother and I worked on it, up until the actual Rare Disease day. CHOPS has earned the number 1. spot on U.S. News and World Report's 2013-14 Honor Roll of the nations best Children's Hospital. It was also ranked in the top 4 for all pediatric specialties surveyed.
I'm thankful that I'm healthy, and I want to help those families who have a child with a Rare Disease. We should try to help them in any way we can. The Rescue Rangers are planning events to raise money for this cause. Please attend our events, so that we can all help sick children get better care.
