Yes. I already wrote a blog entry about our $1 per fan donation to Cook Children’s Health Care Foundation, but is one blog really enough? Of course, not…100,000 blogs aren’t enough to get across how important places like Cook Children’s are!
I’ve already heard amazing stories of survival and received heartfelt “Thank You’s” for holding the simplest fund raiser we could. But ,you know what? Every dollar counts. Every pair of eyes that reads this counts. Every person we get to our Facebook page counts, because without the support of the community, places like Cook Children’s Health Care System would struggle to make ends meet.
I know what you are thinking, but the insurance covers…I’m going to stop you there. This isn’t about insurance, it’s not even really about money, it’s about people. It’s about kindness. It’s about hope. Freeman Grapevine understands how important these things are to the Mother’s and the Father’s of these children. We understand that these families are stronger and more courageous than you could imagine. We want you to understand that too.
As much as we all wish that every baby was born healthy, that every child was cancer free, that every child’s lungs and hearts were without flaws, they aren’t and that’s why we need places like Cook Children’s. That’s why we need you!
If you haven’t already, take a moment “like” our page and show your support for one of Texas’ greatest health care systems on, or before December 31st.
Thank you for your support and your time.
Hopefully it should take a motivational event to spark the spirit of giving in people. However, all it takes sometimes is for a community business to remind people that there are always people that need your help through a simple donation drive. Well, that’s exactly what Freeman Grapevine is doing. From now until December 31st, we will be donating $1 for every new fan that “likes” the Freeman Grapevine Facebook page to Cook Children’s Health Care System. Trust me folks, those $1 bill add up and all you have to do to secure your donation is to follow the link above and like our page. Our donation goal is $1,000 which should be too hard with your help!
It doesn’t take much to participate, in fac you can make your donation in less than 30 seconds.

Again, it doesn’t take much time to make your donation. I’ll be posting through out the month with stories from Cook Children’s that will hopefully inspire you to give a little of your time to help the kids at Cook. Remember, it costs you nothing and you have a chance to help Freeman Grapevine raise $1,000 for kids who need your donations immediately.
