Hamden: Last month the Academy of Kempo Martial Arts asked for your help as they entered their second annual push in their fundraiser for the Tommy Fund for Childhood Cancer, and the response has been a good one. On October 21, 2010, the Academy dropped off 46 boxes of paper that were donated to the Academy of Kempo’s ‘Help a Child Initiative’. Herlin Press of West Haven, CT donated the paper so that the children who are undergoing their cancer treatments can have paper to draw, write, make books or make origami projects. “The ‘Help a Child Initiative’ is very grateful to all of its’ supporters. Things change because people get involved and we are very fortunate for all who are helping to make this project a success,” said Frank Ciarleglio.

The ‘Help a Child Initiative’ is a program started in October of 2009 by Ciarleglio, the Instructor at the Academy of Kempo Martial Arts in Hamden, to help children with life threatening diseases.

“The Academy is continuing to collect arts and crafts materials for children as young as infant to 21 years of age. These items include but are not limited to, Tempera Paints, sand art kits, bead kits, window painting kits, wood projects and jewelry kits. We are also collecting items that can be decorated, such as white tee shirts, white pillowcases, I-pod cases and cloth bags and general items needed to assist The Tommy Fund for Childhood Cancer and the Child Life Specialist-Pediatric Specialty Clinic at the Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital,” said Ciarleglio.

Now there are another two Donations Centers. The Lanphier Day Spa located at 8 Devine Street in North Haven has joined in to collect arts and crafts materials, and they are hosting an “Evening At The Spa” which will benefit the Tommy Fund for Childhood Cancer through the Academy of Kempo’s ‘Help a Child Initiative’. The “Evening At The Spa” is on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm. Please come to relax, enjoy and leave the stress of the world behind while helping children with life threatening diseases.
