This month, we’ve been working hard to raise money and awareness to defeat childhood cancers like Neuroblastoma and Leukemia. We’re continuing to support the Make March Matter campaign virtually. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus, most of the Make March Matter campaign has been postponed- hopefully it'll be Make MAY Matter.
But, it's important for you to know that we're still raising money for Children's Hospital Los Angeles through our online sales. And that's not just for the month of March- it's all year long. When you purchase any item from our Support Childhood Cancer Collection, you're donating to the life-saving research and treatments they offer at CHLA.
So, let's talk a little bit about our charity partner, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, or CHLA, is an award winning, pediatric hospital where they help advance treatment of children’s illnesses through research and education. CHLA’s mission is to provide hope and the best possible care to their children and their families.
They make their mission a reality by employing only the best physicians in the nation. The vast majority of their physicians are board certified in their specialties, meaning that the children under CHLA’s care are receiving only the highest quality treatment and care!
CHLA is also leading the way in innovative research to find new treatments and therapies for childhood diseases. This month’s Cause of the Month is based on a neuroblastoma cell which is a childhood cancer, but CHLA focuses their research efforts on so much more!
They’ve provided groundbreaking research on other childhood diseases and disorders like autism and poor lung development in premature babies. In fact, many of their studies have contributed to current therapies and treatments used today!
How to Get Involved
One way you can support Children’s Hospital Los Angeles is by starting your own fundraising campaign or by donating to someone else’s through CHLA’s website. You can revolve your fundraiser around your sporting activities, a special occasion like a birthday, or as a memorial for a loved one. Start planning now for your fundraiser this summer, when things are hopefully back to normal!
While this is a great way to get involved, it's also a perfect teaching opportunity for your kids. By starting a fundraiser with them, you'll inspire the values of kindness and giving to the less fortunate. If you’re interested in starting a CHLA fundraiser, make sure to visit their fundraising page on their website.
Another way to get involved with CHLA is by supporting their month long campaign, Make March Matter, which will now be postponed to Make MAY Matter. By shopping, dining, or attending the events of their partners (like Revive Jewelry!), you’ll be helping donate money to CHLA. It’s an easy and fun way to give back to this awesome institution! Keep an eye out for details in May.
How to Get Involved with Revive Jewelry
As a proud partner of CHLA, you can get involved with CHLA right here with Revive Jewelry. By purchasing this necklace that I made specifically for the MMM campaign, you will be helping fund CHLA’s research towards treatments and therapies for diseases like childhood cancer.
I call this piece the Contribute to Change Necklace to Cure Childhood Cancer because it is inspired by an image of the childhood cancer cell, Neuroblastoma, and with every purchase, 10% goes to help our partner, CHLA, discover new treatments for this disease.
The Neuroblastoma cell image is encased in resin, making it the centerpiece of the necklace. Complementing it, is a beautiful, bright blue lapis stone. What better way to combat childhood cancers than through a gorgeous piece of jewelry?!
Join me in supporting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and their pediatric research efforts and care. Consider purchasing anything from the Support Childhood Cancer Collection or simply make a donation to CHLA directly through their website. Together, we can make a difference in these kid's lives & they need our help now more than ever!
