About a year ago my cousin Justin was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Type B at age 12. (He's in 7th grade just like me!) I have been waiting for an opportunity to help in the fight against childhood Leukemia. For my upcoming Bat Mitzvah Project, I would like to honor Justin by giving back to St. Peter's University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ, where Justin has been receiving his treatment. I will be assembling, donating and delivering care packages early this fall for other teens like my cousin who are at St. Peter's going through the same experience.

Right now I am looking for donations of specifically teen-related supplies for my care packages, which can be dropped off at my house (about 30 of each):
-Mad Libs/Joke books
-Stress Balls
-Hats (for hair loss)
-Chapstick - COMPLETED!!!!
-Teen Magazines/Sports Illustrated
-Word Searches/Crossword Books/Sudoku
-Purell (Travel Size)
-Card games (Uno)
-packs of Peppermint Gum (helps with chemo nausea) - COMPLETED!!!!
-packs of mints (helps with chemo nausea)
-iTunes/Amazon gift cards

If you live far away or aren't able to donate supplies, there is also the option of monetary donations through this website. Each care package costs about $25 to put together. I am hoping to make 30 of them. (Almost that many kids are diagnosed with Leukemia at St. Peter's each year!!) If I reach my goal of 30 care packages, I will donate any money beyond that to Pediatric Cancer Research so that someday NO kid has to go through what Justin has.

It doesn't take a lot to make a BIG difference. Imagine the smile on one kid's face after receiving this care package and knowing people out there are rooting for them to get better.

Thank you in advance for anything you can do to help me in my cause.

xoxo, Zoe :)
