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!

 

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:

SOMBFAB Awards Guardian Angels

Yesterday, Amy Robins, Co-founder of The Seany Foundation, was pleasantly surprised to be presented with the “Guardian Angels Award” from the young cancer patient and siblings’ support group Some of My Best Friends Are Bald.

This past year, The Seany Foundation invited SOMBFAB members to walk the red carpet at Seany Movie Nights, free-of-charge. Several of its members also enjoy using The Seany Room in the oncology wing of Rady Children’s Hospital, a space dedicated to teens and young adults.

The Seany Foundation is honored to receive the Guardian Angels Award and would also like to wish SOMBFAB a very happy 21st anniversary! Kudos to fellow 2011 Guardian Angel Award recipients Aldo Sabino, Carmen Delgadillo from Friends of Scott, and Gary Schneider.

Kids Helping Kids

A huge thanks goes out to young Noah Baird and friends for hosting the first-ever lemonade stand/snack stop to benefit The Seany Foundation!  Noah and his friends teamed up on July 11 to help us raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer.

Noah’s mom, Becky Baird, writes, “I wanted to share the most beautiful part of our Lemonade Stand Day.  (We learned a lot and next month when we do it again, we will have a REALLY BIG SEANY SIGN!!)  The kids had the best day, smiling, giggling, rocking out to music…super fun. As cars came by, one lady stopped her black SUV and two sweet 10 year old girls (roughly) quickly popped out of the car. The mom followed them across the street. As the girls told our kids what they wanted, the mom asked me what the proceeds were going to. As I told the mom and two young girls, the first girl said she lost a sibling to cancer, and the other girl said her brother had died of cancer as well.  Well, I was moved to chills and tears. I could see the mom was emotional as well, obviously.  The mom had lost her son, the sisters brother, to cancer and the two young girls were friends… It was so moving and really made us realize that we were doing something great!”
