The Candy Cane Sisters

Hello, if this is your first time visiting our donation page welcome and thank you for being here. 

Last year (2022) our family with the help & kindness of random strangers, family & friends successfully reached a goal of raising $1,500 for the Children's Hospital. Both our girls Chloe & Molly, also known as the "Candy Cane Sisters" during the holiday season are here again spreading Christmas cheer and hoping to help children less fortunate than themselves once again by setting a new goal for the 2023 holiday season.

THE BACK STORY: While both girls are still very young and just beginning to understand the magic of Christmas Spirit, we as parents had hopes that we could teach them from a young age that Christmas is about far more than just giving and receiving gifts. It's about spending time with those we love, collecting more memories and less things, spreading cheer, joy, and kindness, but most of all remembering it is the perfect time of year to reflect and be grateful for all that we are fortunate to have [including our health].

What originally started out as a cute "acts of kindness" idea of handing out Candy Cane Christmas wishes to strangers on our daily outings over the holidays, evolved into another hopeful idea - along with spreading kindness, maybe, just maybe we could also help raise a little bit of money in support of the Children's Hospital Foundation. 

THUS, if you received one of our Candy Cane wishes, we hope that even if it is just a dollar you can spare, you'll consider paying forward a small act of kindness and generosity towards helping other families and young children like our two sweet girls that are less fortunate in health over the holiday season.

By making a donation, you're helping to make a difference in child health and child health research necessary to make advancements In medicine and care. With your support, we can #GiveBetterFutures for sick and injured children. 

If you would like to help us reach our goal and donate to an important cause, you can do so by clicking the orange "Donate Now" button. We know we are shooting for the stars, but even if we can raise $100 dollars, every little bit helps. We are happy to accept cash donations if a group of friends or organization would like to pool a little something together. Let us know at and we can pick up any cash donations in person and we will then submit your donation and add your name to our donation list.  

Wishing you a happy & healthy Christmas and Holiday Season.
