We believe in community. We believe in hope, and we believe in finding a cure.
We are so very proud to announce our 2017 Holiday Campaign! In conjunction with Build-A-Bear Inc. and Nemours A.I Dupont Hospital for Children, Believe Bears are bringing bear hugs to children with cancer. For every bear purchased, one bear will be donated to a child with cancer. PLUS, as always, 100% of the proceeds benefit blood cancer research. It’s a win, win.
Believe Bears come with a silk LRFDE Believe Ribbon, a mission statement tag, and thank you notes from the LRFDE and the staff of Nemours.
Middletown High School seniors Kaitlyn Mitchell and Victoria Kostur partnered with us on October 16, 2017 for their senior project: Play For A Cure! The Middletown High School Varsity Field Hockey Team joined Kaitlyn and Victoria in selling t-shirts, promoting the game, and circulating donation opportunities. Their final donation of $764.00 for blood cancer research was so appreciated!
Many thanks to Kaitlyn, Victoria, and all of the Middletown High School Varsity Field Hockey team!
– With love & gratitude, LRFDE
