|After her passing in June 2011 of Osteosarcoma, the Marchbanks family formed Kellsie’s Hope Foundation Inc, to celebrate the life of this
remarkable young woman and to continue the work she started from her hospital bed.
Kellsie’s Hope Foundation Inc, mission is to lighten the load of families that have children suffering from cancer by
offering support for trips, and gifts that might otherwise be unattainable to a child with cancer. Kellsie’s foundation
is also dedicated to raising funds to support research into childhood cancers such as hers and supporting the
nursing field with a nursing scholarship each year.
Corporation and individuals making donations to Kellsie’s Hope Foundation can be assured that their donations will help to make a child with
cancer life a little easier and to support the goal of putting an end to childhood cancer.
Kellsie’s Hope Foundation will assist families in need with gifting, funding trips, and will also fund cancer research and various programs and/or
other support for the medical field such as nursing scholarships.
The Literacy Site was founded to help promote literacy among children from low-income families nationwide.
Partnering with First Book and Room to Read, the site makes books available to children around the world, giving many
children their very first book. With the generous support of our sponsors, each click provides 1% of a book. Making books a
part of a child's life is the best way to encourage the love of reading, and literacy is key in breaking the poverty cycle.
In addition to clicking the "Click Here to Give - it's FREE" button, visitors can help make books available by shopping in The
Literacy Site store. With each item purchased, shoppers generate funds for free books for children in need. The store offers
a wide array of unique and meaningful items, including apparel, jewelry, home accents and gifts from around the world.
