AKT is proud to be partnering with The Jessie Rees Foundation to raise $10,000 to be able to build 500 Joy Jars! We discovered the Jessie Rees Foundation through our connection with "Luke the Brave." Through our fundraising we will be honoring his journey and battle with cancer by helping to bring smiles to kids faces just like him.
The Jessie Rees Foundation was started by Jessie Rees, a little girl who fought and lost her battle to cancer. She wanted to help all of the kids in the hospitals who couldn’t go home have some kind of joy in their lives and bring a smile to each of their faces. The jars are filled with toys, stickers, socks, games, and other different items to help keep them occupied and happy during treatments.
It costs $20 to build one Joy Jar to be sent to a child fighting the biggest battle of their life. No matter the size of the donation it will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for supporting my efforts to help encourage courageous kids fighting cancer to Never Ever Give Up. Please join me in bringing hope, joy and love to these special children and their families - Amber
