Getting in the Seany Spirit

The holidays are here! And we have a great gift idea for you that is not only cool but also benefits kids fighting cancer:

Buy a bracelet or a tshirt, and proceeds go to The Seany Foundation!

Kids Thirsty to Help Other Kids

Twin Cousins Hunter and Daniel Greenspan (6.5 like Noah) joined Noah and Talia (4.5) Baird in Carslbad, CA. They raised money and donated earnings to TSF!

This summer, our good friend Noah Baird, hosted another lemonade stand. And once again, he donated a portion of profits to The Seany Foundation, to help kids who are battling cancer. This time, he enlisted his cousins who were visiting from NY.

Complete with an ipod and speakers, their lemonade stand attracted the attention of drivers-by (mostly due to the wonderful dancing accompanying the music). The Seany Foundation salutes Noah and his growing gang of lemonade sellers for their continued support in the battle against pediatric cancer! Way to go, kiddos!

 

Summer Heats Up!

This summer The Seany Foundation proudly sponsored “Seany’s Corner” at the American Cancer Society’s summer camp program known as Camp Reach for the Sky. The camp allows children with cancer the chance to be kids – an experience often taken away or put on hold by their disease – and gives them a fun summer camping adventure while under medical supervision.

“Seany’s Corner” offered a refuge for kids who preferred to participate in more low-key or less physically demanding outdoor activities, providing numerous arts and crafts projects. On July 4, Seany Co-founder Amy Robins and Board Member Amy Schneider visited camp. Here are a few photos of some of the happy campers:

Obama Signs “Creating Hope Act”

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! President Obama recently signed legislation into law that will offer incentives to pharmaceutical companies to develop new drugs to treat childhood cancers. The “Creating Hope Act” came to fruition in large part due to advocates at Kids v. Cancer and other charities sharing our similar missions. It’s one big step in the right direction!

Temple Solel Trikes Against Cancer

On Wednesday, May 16, preschoolers at Temple Solel Early Childhood Center jumped on their tricycles and did laps to help fight childhood cancer! The Trike-a-Thon donated proceeds to The Seany Foundation. The tikes, in turn, learned about Mitzvahs and helping others in need. Thanks, Temple Solel students and teachers, for riding to help end pediatric cancer! Check out the next generation of do-gooders in action:

Tykes on Trikes for TSF

The Seany Foundation is very fortunate to have such supportive friends at Temple Solel Early Childhood Center! On May 16, the ECC will host a Trike-a-thon to benefit TSF’s pediatric cancer research and patient care projects. Thank you, children and teachers at Temple Solel ECC for your generosity and for making a difference in the lives of children battling cancer!
