Sunrise Day Camp, for children ages 3 1/2 – 16, is the only dedicated full summer day camp in the world for children with cancer and their siblings. It is a camp designed to meet the emotional, social, recreational and physical needs of these children while allowing them to enjoy the comforts and safety of their own homes at night.

There are sleepaway camps that provide a great experience during the summer months, but Sunrise offers benefits that a resident camp can’t. We can provide a true camping experience while not removing children from their familiar surroundings. Sunrise also serves to compliment the sleep away camp experience because many last only one to two weeks.

Best of all, Sunrise Day Camp is offered free of charge to all children being treated for cancer on a non-sectarian basis. By raising the needed funds from outside sources instead of charging the parents, we can help to alleviate some of the costs, and the related stress, that parents incur caring for a sick child throughout the year.

They currently have 4 camps: Wheatley Heights, NY; Pearl River, NY; & even both Beer Sheva and Yehuda, Israel. And they plan on opening 2-4 new camps in the next 12-24 months.

Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures.

The Birthday Box is a non-profit organization that provides children in need with an opportunity to blow out candles and make a birthday wish on his or her special day. An entire birthday celebration is assembled, packaged & then delivered in a recycled box. This party in a box, includes a birthday cake, candles, party plates, a birthday present and party decorations.

Our mission is to grant children in need the opportunity to enjoy a birthday celebration. We anonymously deliver a birthday-in-a-box, complete with cake, candles, decorations and a gift – so all children, regardless of their families’ financial status, have the chance to enjoy their special day.

Every year, as we watch our children’s faces light up as they blow out the candles on their birthday cake, we know they will remember that moment forever and look forward to next year with the same anticipation and excitement. Having a birthday celebration, blowing out candles on a cake and opening a gift, seems very routine to many of us, but sadly, there are many children who never experience that joy. The Birthday Box gives struggling families an opportunity to give a birthday party to their child that would not otherwise be possible. This program is a great way to teach our children about those less fortunate who live right in their own community.

We encourage you to become involved with The Birthday Box and help us give a memorable birthday celebration to any child who needs one.
