The Jessie Rees Foundation has always chosen to CARE for those families impacted by cancer, until there is a CURE and during the month of December we focused on our main goal – to #GiveJOY!
As part of our #GiveJOY month, NEGU AllStars hand delivered JOY to Courageous Kids at 14 hospitals across the Pacific Coast while on the NEGU for Kids Pacific Coast Tour. They delivered Jessie’s JoyJars, and took precious time to encourage the kids and their families to Never Ever Give Up!
In addition to the NEGU for the Kids Pacific Coast Tour, the Jessie Rees Foundation was honored to #GiveJOY in the form of $1,000 to 75 families, as part of the 25 Days of Love! Each day for the first 25 days of December, families that are registered in the FREE Year of JOY program were randomly checks while on tour, spend time with the families, and remind them that the NEGU Nation is constantly encouraging them to Never Ever Give Up!
We received so many thoughtful notes after delivering JOY during 25 Days of Love. Dominic’s Mom writes, “When Dominic started treatment, we went from being a two-income family, to a one-income family. Adjusting to that drastic change in income has been a challenge. This gift will help us make ends meet with our day-to-day expenses, such as food, gas, household items, etc. We are so grateful to the Jessie Rees Foundation for this and all the gifts Dominic has received the past year.”
The Jessie Rees Foundation will continue to CARE until there is a cure. We are so thankful for the honor to continue Jessie’s legacy and encourage Courageous Families to Never Ever Give Up!
