Being Part of the Cure

Academy of Kempo Martial Arts held its first Costume Extravaganza to benefit the “Help a Child Initiative” on Saturday October 27, 2012. This was a fundraiser to collect arts and craft supplies, books, toys and other needed materials for the children who are undergoing cancer treatments.

It was a very fun event for everyone. The Extravaganza was a way to have the students help others while having fun and learning. The students learned a little about what the cancer patients are going through and how their donation makes a difference for these children.

The students also participated in a Costume Parade.

The “Help a Child Initiative” is a program that I started in 2009 to help children with life threatening diseases. The program is designed to collect items such as arts and crafts material for children as young as infant to 21 years of age. These items include but are 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. This is still one of our major goals with the program, but because of the great response that we have had the program has grown into much more. We are also collecting toys, books, games and pretty much anything that a child can play with while they are undergoing treatments. The program also collects revenues so that the Tommy Fund will continue to have a budget built in to purchase what they need so the Child Life Specialist can work with the children who are undergoing cancer treatments. Prior to 2010, there really was not a budget for arts and crafts, and all of the arts and crafts were donated, but because of the “Help a Child Initiative”, the Tommy Fund was able to have a small budget for these items which have such an important impact with the children. The revenues also assist the Tommy Fund in continuing their research to find a cure for cancer and assist families that have children who are in a treatment program.

Monetary contributions are welcome in check form made out to the Tommy Fund or by visiting the Tommy Fund web site at www.tommyfund.org. Please note on your check or on-line donation “Help a Child Initiative” so the Tommy Fund will know how to allocate your contribution.
