Hamden: The “Help a Child Initiative” is a program started in October of 2009 by Frank Ciarleglio, the Instructor at the Academy of Kempo Martial Arts in Hamden, to help children with life threatening diseases.Our program is designed to collect item such as arts and crafts material for children as young as infant to 21 years of age. These items will include but not be 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.

This fundraiser has been an ongoing project for the Academy, “We have been very fortunate to have the support of our students, family members and friends at the Academy with this ongoing project” said Ciarleglio. "But now we need your help, we are now entering our second annual push in this fundraiser for the Tommy Fund for Childhood Cancer,” said Ciarleglio. The Tommy Fund for Childhood Cancer is an organization that acts as a helping hand to the pediatric oncology section of the department of pediatrics at the Yale School of Medicine, the Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital and the Yale Cancer Center, working alongside the dedicated professionals in the field. Through their collaborative efforts, they are able to diagnose and provide treatment to children with blood disorders and malignancies, conduct research and teaching in the field of childhood cancer, and support entire families throughout a child’s treatment.

The Academy has a list of items they are collecting as well as a wish list from the Child Life Specialist-Pediatric Specialty Clinic on its web site, www.academyofkempo.com. “I know that in these economically challenging times that it is hard for people to find anything extra in their budget, but even one item will help to make a difference,” Ciarleglio said.

All products can be dropped off at the Academy of Kempo Martial Arts, located at 1890 Dixwell Avenue, Hamden Connecticut 06514. For more information on how to get involved, you can contact the Academy at (203) 288-9990, or visit them on the web at www.academyofkempo.com.
