Hope for kids with cancer is what keeps them fighting for a cure. Many families are in the midst of battling various cancers every day. A cancer diagnosis can be devastating and parents must look for hope wherever they can. Last week I learned about a wonderful initiative that the Extended Stay America hotels has started to help the youngest cancer patients in our country.
Hope is the softest, cuddliest teddy bear made by the Build A Bear Company. We received one Hope bear and my daughter immediately fell in love with her. They just finished a whirlwind trip through DC and Michigan together. They have also slept side by side each night. I can only imagine how comforting a Hope bear must be to a child feeling lonely in the hospital. Next week we are bringing a big donation of toys to our local children’s hospital and we will also be donating our Hope bear to comfort a child who is sick.
The Extended Stay America hotel chain plans to donate at least 5,000 bears to children fighting cancer in the United States. These bears will definitely brighten a sick child’s hospital stay, while also being a source of great comfort. Beginning in September 2017, the Hope bears will be provided to patients with the help of the American Cancer Society. A small donation of only $10 will cover the cost of one Hope bear.
There is one more way you can help with this wonderful initiative. For the low cost of $19.99, you can purchase a Hope teddy bear for yourself or for someone you love. Maybe someone in your family needs a little Hope in their lives. Extended Stay America hotels will donate $5 of each Hope bear purchase and will make a donation to the American Cancer Society to help with Pediatric Cancer Research.
Not only has the Extended Stay America chain created the adorable Hope bear, they have done much more. Since 2013, they have donated at a deep discount, or provided for free, more than 85,000 rooms to families with a child battling cancer at a location far from their home. Doesn’t this make you want to give your hotel business to this chain?
