Andrew’s Helpful Hands

This past weekend we had the pleasure of taking the photo booth to the 10th Annual GOLD RIBBON HOLIDAY RECEPTION for Andrew’s Helpful Hands.  Here is a blurb about the organization from their website…

“Andrew’s Helpful Hands Organization is helping families going through Bone Marrow Transplant. We will allow parents to focus on their child during recovery. The process of going through a Bone Marrow Transplant has many facades. If a donor is needed, we help you organize a Bone Marrow Drive. If finances are needed, we help you with fundraisers, benefits, raffles, etc. If you just need a helping hand, give us a call at 508-380-1797 because whatever you need during this period, we are here to be helpful.”

This organization was started after 5-year-old Andrew Swenson, who was in Bone Marrow Transplant Unit in Boston, always wanted to make others happy.

“On the sixth floor in Boston, a child sleeps, isolated by glass. Controlled to be pure, controlled for a life full of health. Hope filled eyes wanting to go home awaken to an oversized bag filled to the top with unwrapped presents. He looks at his mom and says, “These are too many for me. Can I give some to other kids in here?” (from http://www.andrewshelpfulhands.com).

Austin and I write this post because we want to help bring awareness to this wonderful organization. During this busy holiday season please stop and think about those who may be in need and do what you can to help.
