Edison, New Jersey, January 15, 2015 (Newswire.com) - To a child with cancer, even a little bit of comfort and relief is welcome. Tomorrow’s Children Fund (TCF), based in Hackensack, N.J., cares for youngsters living with the disease. And while cancer doesn’t take a holiday, the kids at Tomorrow’s Children had the courage to celebrate anyway.
To make their season a little brighter, a donation of 400 Pillow Pets™ was made by Edison, N.J., based Dr. Leonard’s® Healthcare Corp. The 200 Lady Bug and 200 Heart Pup Pillow Pets were delivered in time for the Tomorrow’s Children holiday party, December 6, 2014.
A Generous Gesture
Dr. Leonard’s®, which publishes both Carol Wright Gifts® and Dr. Leonard’s® direct mail catalogs, is a respected multi-channel marketer of gifts and health-related products, including Pillow Pets. The holiday donation was Dr. Leonard’s® way of lifting the spirits of these brave children who face enormous challenges every day.
The Pillow Pets should provide some relief. They’re soft, huggable, stuffed animals that open to a full 18" pillow. Children just need to unfasten its belly with the "touch" closure and it becomes a super-snugly chenille pillow.
The staff at Dr. Leonard’s® hopes that the children will be comforted by their pillow “friends,” but also encouraged to know that there are people outside of their circle who support them and wish them well. The company has a history of making generous donations to local groups as part of its overall effort to support the neediest in its community.
A Short History of the Tomorrow’s Children Fund
The Tomorrow’s Children’s Fund is a privately funded, non-profit organization dedicated to easing the pain and speeding the healing of children with cancer and serious blood disorders.
The DON IMUS - WFAN Pediatric Center for Tomorrow’s Children at Hackensack Medical Center was opened in 1994 to create a loving place where seriously ill children and their families could find hope, healing and happiness in the midst of their crisis. Children go there for compassionate, world-class medical care from an expert and comforting staff. And it’s where parents share their hopes, fears and concerns with others who understand their pain. The fund benefits from the support of radio icon, Don Imus, and WFAN Radio.
“Dr. Leonard’s® is only too happy to give the children at Tomorrow’s Children Fund something warm and cuddly to brighten their holiday season” said a Dr. Leonard’s® representative Joe Albanese, President of Dr. Leonard’s® Healthcare Corp. of the donation.
“I wish you could have seen the smiles on the faces of all the children when they received the adorable Pillow Pets!” said Sue Garbe, administrative director at Tomorrow’s Children’s Fund.
