HOW IT WORKS:
This year we are asking for your help to partner with 12+ organizations. Each month you can help us select a worthy charity in our community and we will donate $2,000.00.
HOW CAN I HELP:

Here are the winning nominations for March 2019
Camp Journey is a camp providing a community of hope for children and their families touched by cancer. Dealing with childhood cancer can sometimes make “just being a kid” seem out of reach—and out of scope for the whole family. In this nurturing, medically supervised home-away-from-home, young cancer survivors can leave their worries behind for one magical week and immerse themselves in a fun-filled outdoor camp experience tailored expressly to their needs. Meanwhile, their families and caregivers can rest easy, knowing that trained oncology staff is on-site 24/7. With roots dating to 1985, Camp Journey is a no-cost resident and day camp for children diagnosed with cancer, both on and off therapy. http://rosspoint.org/camp-journey (Vote Below)
When a child is diagnosed, the family is diagnosed. The mission of the Anna Schindler Foundation is to support families fighting childhood cancer in the Inland Northwest and raise awareness of this disease.

We endeavor to defray travel, grocery, medical, living and even burial expenses that is incurred because of a sick child.

PREVIOUS CHARITY OF THE MONTH WINNERS
All Heart Infusion is a nonprofit nursing organization located in Spokane, WA. Founded in September of 2017 in response to the immediate need in our community for expert home infusion nursing. All Heart Infusion provides care to all those in need regardless of their ability to pay.
Over 100 Years of Combined Experience
While they are a new organization, their nurses have over 100 years of combined experience in infusion nursing and over 80 years of combined experience in pediatric nursing. Infusion nursing is a specialty and deals specifically with intravenous care. In many cases their patients have some form of a central line, allowing direct access to their heart, while also requiring a great deal of care to ensure the line stays clear of infection. These techniques are then shared with caregivers, whether that be a mom, dad, loved one or the patient themselves. Their nurses travel up to 200 miles outside of Spokane and into Idaho to visit their patients, often times once a week.
Charity Care Program
It is through their Charity Care program that they fulfill their mission. Through this program, they are able to provide the highest quality of care free of charge to patients who are uninsured, underinsured, or have no coverage for our care with the many of them falling below the federal poverty level. In 2018 their nurses provided more than $120,000 of charity care to the people of the Inland Northwest.
