Currently, we run an amazing program, Pot of Gold, which is designed to make use of donations from people just like you. Pot of Gold works to ease families into understanding and fighting their child’s cancer.
As soon as we hear about a child who has been newly diagnosed with cancer, we reach out to the child’s family and offer to create a Pot of Gold. The “Pots” are big 5 gallon glittery gold metal pots filled with gifts specific to each child’s wishes. These gifts are for children ranging from birth to 19; any donation can make a difference to the families we serve. We fill this Pot of Gold with $300 to around $500 worth of items related to the child’s interests and gifts for the family to make this time easier on them.
We have partnered with multiple companies and businesses who have donated electronics and game systems, gift cards, and other presents. The child also receives a large custom made fleece, made by our very own “Golden Girls” who create handmade blankets based on the child’s interests (baseball, cartoons, books, etc.). We offer resources and support to the families. Additionally, and most importantly, we stay connected to these families, providing resources and support to make this time easier on them.
Pot of Gold is why donations like yours are so crucial. Your 100% tax deductible donation of any amount (whether monetary donations or gifts for Pot of Gold – every donation goes to a child who needs it) helps us make more Pots of Gold and reach out to more families. Every donation goes to a child in need, and every donation is both necessary and appreciated.
Gold Rush Cure Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization, and your 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation of any amount helps us make more Pots of Gold and reach out to more families and children. We appreciate you for helping us make a difference to children everywhere.
These two forms should be delivered to your Social Worker or sent to firstname.lastname@example.org after a referral is made.
We fight the battle against Childhood Cancer on a one-to-one basis through our Pot of Gold. Pot of Gold focuses on both the child and the family, ensuring that both have the materials they need in this trying time. The children have contents related to their interests, while the parents receive items which improve their quality of life and ability to care for their children.
We need your help. Will you consider sponsoring a Pot of Gold for a child fighting cancer? We are able to continue this program due to generous people like you.
