Feels So Good
03/14/2014 6:11 PM
Just got back from dropping off a check for $1050, the proceeds of our February event, at the offices of The Ashley Lauren Foundation. Monica Vermeulen, Founder and Executive Director of the nonprofit devoted to helping children with cancer, showed me around.
The office is full of photos of young children, just a few of the over 300 who have received help and support from the organizaton. The Ashley Lauren Foundation, based in Colts Neck, supports families of children with pediatric cancer throughout New Jersey. It is a grass roots organization, with volunteers becoming directly involved with the children and families. One of the most moving things they do is to arrange for the children to realize some of their fondest wishes, like meeting a professional football player or getting the puppy they've always wanted. But these touching stories are just a small part of their mission to provide direct financial and material assistance to ease the journey of those battling pediatric cancer. It feels so good to make even a small contribution to help the Ashley Lauren Foundation achieve such worthy goals. Thanks to everyone who contributed to and attended our "Come to Your Senses" event on February 23 at the Monmouth Beach Cultural Center. You help us make a difference.
