Pumpkin & Apple Time, 2017
Thank you for your support!
Greetings dear friends,
Thank you so very much for your support of Rosepetals. Your generosity is always greatly appreciated by our children and their families. I would like to remind you of the wonderful ways your gifts are used.
Eighty percent of our children are terminally ill and range between the age of 6 months and 10 years old. Twenty percent of our children are autistic or challenge other compromise. Time and money are donated to give unique care, toys and parties for the children as well as support to the parents who may not be able to afford rent, food, clothing and overwhelming medical expenses. Many of our children have brothers and sisters and come from single parent homes. When parents are faced with mounting household, medical or even funeral expenses, Rosepetals is there to assist. No parent ought to be forced to choose between food and the appropriate care for their precious child.
Soon the frost will be on the pumpkin and ghosts and goblins will be scouring the neighborhood for goodies. Rosepetals too loves a party for all the little trick-or-treaters together with us in the hospital and we offer games and goodies too for both the children and the families. You should see how the kids faces light up when we all parade about in our own costumes and the kids try to guess who we are!
Won't you please help us prepare for this special day for with your tax deductable donation?

Report on Cade
Hard to believe Cade is now 16 years old. He happens to be an exceptional story writer and is ever so fond of Stephen King. After penning an extraordinary saga, Cade's Mom and Julie got together and sent it along to Stephen King. Mr. King actually replied to young Cade and acknowledged and praised his story. Cade was absolutely overjoyed upon receiving recognition from such a famous person, his idol. There's no stopping Cade for sure. Imagine how great he will be at 26 and 36! We'll keep you posted.
Happy Halloween all you Trick-or-Treaters,
Love and Light
