Happy Haddy's legacy
Inspired by Haddy's beautiful young life and tragic loss, April Isham, Natalie Shotts and the Clark Pleasant Junior Honor Society (Greenwood, IN) led a 2 month-long sheet-raising campaign to bring smiles to kids fighting cancer in our local hospitals. In Hudson's loving memory, we are honored and thankful to accept this generous donation.

The Lighthouse Team
During the month of November, the Nativity Catholic School’s Student Lighthouse Team have been collecting donations benefiting Sheets From Home. They worked hard to make sure other kids will have a smile on their face! Their kind donation will be delivered to children's hospitals in the Midwest and will help ease the pain of pediatric patients while they are undergoing treatments in the hospital.
The Lighthouse team is a student based program that puts special emphasis on giving back to the community. We are thrilled that they choose Sheets From Home as their November activity. Thank you Nativity Catholic School. Your efforts are greatly appreciated!

Bringing the Spirit of America to UMass Memorial Children's Medical Center
The Pediatric Cancer Program at UMass Memorial Children’s Medical Center is a comprehensive children’s hematology/oncology program that, as a member of the Children’s Oncology Group, offers access to clinical trials for pediatric cancer treatment. The department focuses on providing most advanced medical care combined with the best emotional support for your child and your family.
With that said, it is our honor to become a part of their efforts! On Friday, we were able to deliver fun, colorful bed sheets to their oncology unit bringing much-needed smiles to the kiddos there!

Michigan is on our map!
Charles Stewart Mott (1875–1973) was an engineer, entrepreneur, public servant and philanthropist who dedicated much of his life, and wealth, to helping others. Mr. Mott’s GM shares made him a wealthy man, and he parlayed his fortune into a life of public service and philanthropy. He served three terms as mayor of Flint, during which time he led efforts to pave the city’s dirt roads and build a modern sewer system. In 1926, he established the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation for philanthropic, charitable and educational purposes. The Foundation affirmed Mr. Mott’s vision of a world in which every person was in partnership with the rest of the human race, and where each individual’s quality of life is connected to the well-being of the community — locally and globally.
The C.S. Mott Children's Hospital is a pediatric hospital through the University of Michigan Health System in Ann Arbor, Michigan. We are proud to announce that as of last week, kids who are fighting cancer at C.S. Mott will be sleeping on Sheets From Home too! We would like to send a very special THANK YOU to Lorrie Mamlin for making this all possible!

Drop off #71 goes to...
Today's delivery to Norton Children's Hospital (Louisville, KY) marks our 71st drop off! There were lots of constructions on the road there (hmmm... I-65!), lots of constructions at the hospital (upgrading and expending!) and lots of smiles at the end of the day (and that's what really matters)!

Double the trouble
We managed to squeeze in a second drop off today! WOW! Bean-town got extra smiles in the afternoon with a fun shipment of colorful bed sheets at Boston Children's Hospital. It takes a team to #giveasheet and we would like to send a special THANK YOU to Shmuel Halevi who packed and delivered it all safely to the kids there!

South Bend Smiles (:
Today was a rainy, wet kind of day but it was also a day filled with smiles! We traveled to South Bend (IN) to bring smiles to kids at Beacon Children's Hospital. It was an honor to meet the staff - which took the time from their busy day and showed us around. What a beautiful facility! They put so much thought in making the families stay as comfortable as possible. As a family that spent 18 months in and out of the hospital, we understand that need of a home-like feeling and truly appreciate it!

On a busy Friday afternoon in the heart of New York city, Danielle and Tamar met with Rachel, the Child life specialist at Memorial Sloan Kettering, to deliver 30+ sheet-sets, bringing smiles to kids in the big apple too! This is the first hospital (out of 10) that we plan to cover as part of our #Giveasheet campaign during the Childhood Cancer Awareness Month efforts.
We would like to thank all of Area23 families who donated and made this possible. We would also like to send a special shout-out to Danielle for leading this sheets-raiser from A to Z! We know you #giveasheet!
