Waxhaw, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/09/2015 -- The Isabella Santos Foundation has announced that individuals or groups looking to host their own beneficiary to raise money for the Charlotte, NC, Neuroblastoma foundation will be able to purchase "wish kits" to aid in the fundraising process. The kits, known as "Purple Boxes of Hope," will be available until December 31, 2015.
The Isabella Santos Foundation is a foundation for children with cancer that was begun to honor the life and dreams of Isabella Santos, a young girl who fought a form of cancer known as neuroblastoma for most of her life. After Isabella Santos passed away in 2012, the foundation was formed to help fulfill her dream to help other brave young children fighting their own battles with cancer. The foundation not only raises awareness of Neuroblastoma, but brings the community together in fun and impactful ways to raise money to fulfill Isabella's wish for a world without cancer.
Purple Boxes of Hope wish kits allow participants to run an Isabella Santos Foundation beneficiary event of their choice. The kits, available for purchase online, come in three varieties, based off of Isabella's three wishes: to "beat cancer," "grow hair" and "live my dreams." The Beat Cancer wish kit is designed for parents looking for a fun summer project to help teach their children to give back to their community, while the Grow Hair wish kit is oriented towards adult and/or corporate participants. The Live My Dream wish kit is perfect for those looking to organize a runner's event, such as a 5k or relay. Wish kits will be available for purchase until December 31, 2015, at a cost of $53.49 per kit. Individuals not interested in hosting a fundraiser but still interested in supporting the cause, in honor of Isabella or another loved one, can also donate any amount online.
