Ah, Thanksgiving! Time to be grateful and celebrate with FAMILY, FUN, FOOTBALL and FOOD!
In fact, I am reminded of just how vital FAMILY - including the Bounce family – is, by this school assignment which came home with a Bounce sibling last Friday. Mom and Dad were so moved they shared it with us. I'm passing it on because, thanks to you, Bounce was top of the list!
Also thanks to you, Bounce packed & shipped Thanksgiving themed FUN in our latest
Bounce Back Kit®.
As you will see below, they connected, distracted, entertained and truly brightened the holiday for sick kids, healthy siblings and weary parents.
FOOTBALL will be a special part of our celebration as Bounce gathers over the holiday weekend for
Chicago Bears Watch Party! We will tailgate (indoors, of course) and cheer on the hometown team joined by Chicago Bears mascot, Staley! In addition to arts & crafts, lunch, and games, the kids will also enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be photographed wearing a
NFL uniform! Many laughs will be shared, hugs given, memories made, and hearts filled joy.
Our salute to FOOD will be featured in
the online community where Bounce parents share and support one another. Each week during November recipes contributed by two Bounce member families will be posted. Here’s to favorites old and new!
Without you this celebration would not exist! Whether you donate the dollars vital to funding our work, partner with us to introduce families in need of Bounce, or volunteer at an event or in the back office, YOU are what I am most grateful for this year!
Enjoy the holiday remembering the hundreds of Bounce kids/families who are grateful for YOU -
Joan M. Steltmann
Chief Executive Officer
P.S. I would be remiss if I didn’t also mention that Tuesday, November 28
is Giving Tuesday in the U.S. We’ll tell you more below…
