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:

Thank You, Sponsors!

Thank you to all those who sponsored a teen for this year’s Twilight Night! Thanks to you, we reached our goal of 100 tickets sponsored through Seany’s Sponsor-a-Kid (and Family) Program. Over 80 attendees from local hospitals (teens and their families) shared the theater with another 100 Seany supporters who came out for the fun! Click on the image below to read all about it.

The Seany Foundation would like to send a big thanks to everyone who sponsored a kid and/or family to attend this year’s Hairless Potter Night! Click the image below to see how you made a difference in the lives of kids and teens with cancer:

Thanks to Temple Solel Early Childhood Center

A very special thanks goes out Noah Baird and The Kadima Bet class of 2011 from Temple Solel Early Childhood Center. They spent some time thinking about what they wanted to do with the Tzedakah they earned this year.

After several suggestions, they agreed that giving their class Tzedakah to The Seany Foundation would make everyone happy and proud. In addition, Kadima Alef and Kadima Bet joined Noah and his Mom, Becky, to host a lemonade stand to raise funds for pediatric cancer research. Thank you to Becky Cherlin Baird, Sharon Segal, and the teachers and kids of Temple Solel’s ECC Kadima, Class of 2011, for making a difference! You’re off to a bright start!

Happy New Year!

The Seany Foundation and Team Seany would like to wish you a very happy and healthy New Year!  We have lots of fun-filled events planned for 2011; we hope to see you then!  Thanks for a very generous year of giving.  Take a few minutes to read our Year-in-Review to feel good about making the difference in the lives of kids with cancer.

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!”
