The Valentine Project

The Valentine Project was started in response to our experiences working with children with cancer and their siblings. We noticed that many patients and siblings don’t look forward to Valentine’s Day because of what they’re going through. Cancer can be lonely for patients and siblings alike, and Valentine’s Day often highlights that loneliness. Because of the physical, emotional, and cognitive side effects of cancer treatment, not to mention the absences from school that come along with a serious medical diagnosis, these children may struggle to “fit in” with their peers. Gradually, we learned that many of the social challenges that children with cancer face affect all children with chronic illnesses and their families; so, we adjusted our mission to be all-inclusive for children with cancer, children with chronic illnesses, and their families. At The Valentine Project, our goal is for all children whose lives are affected by cancer or a chronic illness to feel special and loved each Valentine’s Day. We hope you’ll join us in supporting these deserving families. We’re true believers that one box filled with love can change someone’s life.

I (Michaela Gabrielle) chatted with board member Ed Laubacher to find out why The Valentine Project is important to him. Ed believes small acts of kindness are immeasurably valuable, so even though he is busy and sometimes pulled in many directions by life (like all of us!), he makes time to volunteer with and support The Valentine Project- a cause he believes in. If you like what Ed has to say and want to get in on the action, visit www.thevalentineproject.org to find out how you can get involved! Or click the "donate" button above to give via PayPal. You'll be providing much needed financial support to help us continue to send love, hope, and joy to children whose lives are affected by cancer or a chronic illness. #GivingTuesday #MakeTimeForWhatMatters #SupportWhatMatters #Kindness

I (Michaela, social media director) was fortunate to be able to chat with Valentine Project board member Marcy McKeel Venarge, who very graciously allowed me to film our conversation. Marcy is a busy mother of three with many responsibilities and commitments in her life; however, making time for The Valentine Project is a priority for her and her family. I wondered why this cause is important to her, and she shared a few reasons to which we can all relate. Thanks for being such a good sport, Marcy! We love having you as part of The Valentine Project family. If any of the reasons Marcy shared resonated with you, please click "donate" above, or visit www.thevalentineproject.org to give much-needed financial support for our organization to continue sending love, hope, and joy to children whose lives are affected by cancer or a chronic illness. Even $5 is a big help! #GivingTuesday #MakeTimeForWhatMatters #Give #Family

I (Michaela, your social media director and the voice behind the camera) got the chance to sit down with board member Sarah Taggart, mom of Troy, Ty, and Annie (three of our care package recipients) and active volunteer with The Valentine Project. I wondered, how does a busy person with a hectic life make time for The Valentine Project? Sarah's answer perfectly explains how even in the midst of life's craziness, it's worth it to her to make time a cause that matters. Want to give of your time, talent, or money to improve the lives of children affected by cancer or a chronic illness?
