Since 2008, Stuff the Sleigh has partnered with Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH) to benefit pediatric cancer and hematology patients, their siblings and their families who are patients at TCH. Stuff the Sleigh provides multiple avenues of year-round giving:
Private Events The charity holds an annual, private Christmas event for those children, their siblings and their families with a real-bearded Santa, his helpers and numerous corporate and individual volunteers and provides Christmas gifts for the entire family for those TCH cancer patients who are financially in need. Christmas carols and games are played while professional photographers take, what are unfortunately for many, their last and only family photos. Additionally, the charity provides Christmas financial scholarships on a need-basis during the Christmas season.
STS has expanded its private events program through the establishment of ‘Dare to Dream’, an STS program that grants wishes made by those wanting to have a unique experience as one of their last wants of kiddos with terminal cancer.
Funeral & Burials STS unfortunately also provides financial aid to help cover the cost of burials of children who have lost their battle with cancer.
Legacy STS has not implemented this as of today, but down the road, intends to establish an endowment fund to help fund treatments for pediatric cancer that show great promise at curing certain types of cancer. Not only do we want to give children joy for a brief moment in time, but we want to give them countless moments in time for a life lived with abundant joy and experiences. We want to create legacy.
