the inspiration behind the Joy Jars
Because of the tremendous generosity of so many Eastsiders we are able to support amazing organizations like NEGU (Never Ever Give Up). Recently, we were able to provide support in the way of gift cards for 500 families with children battling cancer. This is one way we are offering Unprecedented Hope to the communities near us. Here are a few words of thanks from NEGU and just a few of the families who received these gift cards.
Eastside, we can’t thank you enough for your generosity. We are so grateful for you and your commitment to making a difference in the lives of kids fighting cancer. We are blown away by the generosity that provided so much joy to these families!
“Thank you so much for the generous Amazon gift card. We’re headed in for round 3 of June’s chemo today and she’s looking forward to brainstorming something fun to purchase while she’s stuck in there this week. Very thoughtful and very much appreciated.”
“NEGU always keeps our girl going. We have your posters up in her room for her to see. Today we received a gas card, to say I am in tears of gratitude is an understatement.”
“Hello! We received the gift card and what an incredible blessing this is! Wow, thank you guys so much! Financial provisions are always so needed in this economy. Thanks again!”
“Thank you so much for the gift card! The kids each got a pair of new shoes with it!”
“We received the gift card for gas. Thank you so much! This is a huge help with all the driving back and forth for treatment.”
“We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the gas gift card. I am still out of work so this helps so much! Such a nice surprise! What a blessing. We are honored and humbled.”
