2018 is drawing to a close. What an appropriate time to teeter on the verge of welcoming our 300th family! Forty percent of new family referrals come from healthcare partners, while Bounce families introduce 30%, and the balance meet Bounce through volunteers, friends, and donors.
I am reminded of a special call this time last year. The mother of a very sick child greeted me with, "I'm not really sure what you do or if you can help my family, but this lady told me I just
to call you." She proceeded to share her story of a chance meeting at a crosswalk outside Lurie Children's Hospital. In the time it took the light to turn green, that mom
new to Bounce at the time, made the case for how Bounce had changed her family's life.
In this season of miracles and giving, please help us field the next call - and the one after that. Help us continue to offer amazing
(R) family adventures like those highlighted below, and help us shift even more lives from surviving to thriving.
As you gather with your loved ones, I wish you the miracles and gifts of the holiday season-
