Letz Make A Rainbow

LETZ MAKE A RAINBOW

On a snowy December day, Katie and Maddie  (age 10)  started brainstorming ways to raise money for the Riley Children's Foundation.   Katie lost her little brother Cooper to Mito Disease in October 2013.   He and his family Kara, Jami and Katie  spent a great deal of time with the wonderful caring staff at Riley Hospital.   In his honor the girls wanted to raise money.    

The girls decided to raise money by selling Rainbow Loom bracelets.  They created a facebook page called "Letz Make a Rainbow" and within 3 weeks had sold 500 bracelets and raised $500!    All money raised went to the Foundation and all bracelets were donated to patients and Riley staff.    The girls held a looming party in which twelve fifth grade girls loomed and people from all over the state mailed in bracelets to contribute to the 500! 

The girls met with the foundation last week and discovered that if they raise $500 more, a wagon can be named in Cooper's honor.    Now the girls have their sights on raising more money and making more bracelets!    After the overwhelming about of support the girls have received, they have decided to go for 2 wagons in Coopers name!!   So their goal is now $1500!

With March Madness just around the corner, the girls will be making bracelets to order with your favorite college team colors and name.   You can make a donation directly on this site and place your order with the girls in the comments section.   They can either deliver the bracelets to you or you can donate your bracelet(s) to Riley patients.   Because the bracelets will be made to order & will include beads, the price of the bracelets have gone up to $5 per bracelet.   

Please join us in support of Riley Children’s Foundation. Contributions made from this fundraising page will help Riley Hospital for Children fulfill the mission of funding the highest level of clinical care, breakthrough pediatric research and cutting-edge facilities at Riley Hospital.
