Each year on Super Cooper’s birthday, the Foundation launches our annual fundraising drive in his honor so that we can continue to provide housing and support services to our families as their children battle cancer. This year, we shared a birthday card with our friends with a message from the Foundation board and now we’re sharing it with you! Read our birthday message below and please consider making a gift to the Foundation as part of our birthday celebration!
“Dear Super Cooper Supporters,
Thanks to your support, Super Cooper’s Little Red Wagon Foundation has grown tremendously over the past seven years from one ReCOOPERation house in Chapel Hill, to four ReCOOPERation homes across Chapel Hill and Durham. This has allowed us to better serve the growing needs of both UNC and Duke families. In just the past six months, we have provided housing for 20 families and provided support for groceries and gas for 28 families. As impressive as these numbers are, there is more that we can do and sadly, there are more families who need our help.
After a lot of consideration, we have decided to focus our time and energy in 2016 on fulfilling our mission: to provide housing and support services for families fighting cancer. This means that we’re taking a year off of our Super Cooper Rockin’ Run event, but we are not taking a year off of the work! The run will be back in 2017 and in the meantime, we hope that you will consider making a gift to the foundation as part of our annual celebration of Cooper’s birthday.
The Foundation’s goal is to raise $40,000 between today and September 1st. Your support allows brave Super Cooper families to focus on the real battle…beating cancer. Your financial support makes a difference!
– $25 allows a family to travel home for the weekend
– $50 provides a hot meal for a family
-$100 heats a ReCOOPERation house for one month
– $250 covers a week of groceries for a family
– $500 pays for 2 months of utilities for a ReCOOPERation Home
– $1000 gives a family over a month of food expenses
– $5000 provides 2 months of housing and groceries for a family
Thank you for caring for these families
