I donated $10 in support of this campaign.
When I was younger I was at the hospital frequently. Children that are frequent visitors to hospitals for a variety of chronic illnesses often do not get interaction with other kids their age. As part of my International Baccalaureate program I wanted to pick a project that touched me. I originally had planned to work with a young boy name Yoi. When he passed away I wanted to use his inspiration to continue my project. Minecraft helped Yoi during his long hospital stays. I have put together a team of people all touched by a chronic illness in some way. Our goal is to create a Minecraft server that allows kids with chronic illnesses to connect and make friends with other kids who face similar challenges and have fun! Additionally we have the goal to be able to provide a tablet or other device for those families who can not afford one.
We are asking our key partners to rally their friends, family, and networks to support our work. By becoming a fundraiser for ANGEL SERVICE DOGS, you will help more Children with Chronic Illness, and you'll help your friends feel good about doing good.
Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference. With your help we can ensure that because of you, we will be able to bring friendship and some peace to children who have chronic illness and do not get the chance to just be kids.
