Crush Kids' Cancer: David Archuleta's Angels 2014 Summer Fundraising Challenge

In the past, Stand Up 2 Cancer would a 2-week long summer fundraising challenge right before their televised broadcast. This year, although SU2C will be doing their broadcast on September 5, 2014, they are not hosting a fundraising challenge like years past.

So, I thought, just because SU2C isn't doing a challenge, that doesn't mean Crush Kids' Cancer can't!


Starting today, August 22, until Stand Up 2 Cancer's broadcast on September 5, Crush Kids' Cancer: David Archuleta's Angels will be doing our own fundraising challenge! Our goal is to raise as much money as we can for Crush Kids' Cancer within these two weeks!

To donate, click the big, orange DONATE button on the right, then click the red DONATE NOW button on our team page!

We want to see those numbers going up over the next 2 weeks, so please donate! No amount is too small and all of the proceeds go to Stand Up 2 Cancer to help find a cure! If you are unable to donate, we always appreciate spreading the word! Share with your friends and families, on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, etc!

Twitter Trending Party + Thunderclap

On Thursday, September 4, 2014, we want to trend on Twitter just like we did 2 years ago!

Trend: SU2C Crush Kids Cancer

Time: 9pm EST

Be sure to participate in our Thunderclap as well! We need at least 100 participants by September 2nd in order for our Thunderclap to happen! If you participate with Twitter, the tweets will be sent out on September 4th at 9pm EST during our trending party!
Crush Kids' Cancer's summer fundraising challenge starts... NOW!

Crush Kids' Cancer Bumper Sticker Project

Summer is just beginning and that means a new project from Crush Kids' Cancer: The Kids' Chapter!

For this project, all you have to do is purchase a Crush Kids' Cancer bumper sticker on our Zazzle store, display it somewhere (your car, your office, your room, etc.) and send us a picture! Buy one for every car you own, buy one for all of your office workers, give them as gifts at a BBQ! Be creative and spread the word!


Bumper Stickers cost $5.00 each and we receive 25% of the proceeds. That 25% will be donated to Crush Kids' Cancer: David Archuleta's Angels.

Email us your pictures and be sure to also post them on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, etc. and tweet us @TheKidsChapter!

The goal is to sell as many bumper stickers as possible, spread the word and raise as much for Crush Kids' Cancer as we can!

Tyler's Birthday Parade in Rhode Island

Credit to Bobby Rotondo
Today, March 6, 2014, is Tyler Seddon's 7th birthday. Tyler is a little boy from Rhode Island who is battling leukemia for a second time. He's known to love firefighters and policemen and wants to be both a firefighter and a policeman when he grows up.

A few weeks ago, I heard about Tyler's story on my local Boston news which spread the word about Tyler's aunt and mother's hopes to gather birthday cards from policemen and firefighters for Tyler. Upon learning this, I immediately thought of my cousin, Bobby, who is a firefighter for the Lynn Fire Department in Massachusetts. I contacted Bobby and shared with him Tyler's story and he was kind enough to plan on sending Tyler some birthday cards from his station.

What I didn't know, was that there was a parade being held for Tyler on his birthday in Rhode Island. Bobby and two others from his station attended the parade, along with 185 police cars, 30 fire engines and 12 motorcycles. Burillville, RI law enforcement made Tyler Chief of Police for the day and he received a special uniform and badge at a swearing-in ceremony. It was noted that Tyler also received almost 800 birthday cards and his family is overwhelmed with the wonderful response.

2013 David Archuleta Christmas/Birthday Project

As many of you may remember, last year around this time, The Kids' Chapter held our David Archuleta Christmas/Birthday Project, selling ornaments with proceeds going to Crush Kids' Cancer: David Archuleta's Angels as our Christmas and Birthday gift to David.

This year, we're at it again with a newly designed ornament made by The Kids' Chapter team member Lynsey!

From now (Nov 1) to the end of the year (Dec 31), you have the chance to purchase this new ornament and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Crush Kids' Cancer as our Christmas/Birthday gift to David!


The ornament is $13.95 and will hang nicely on every Archie's Christmas tree, or could be a great stocking stuffer! If you do not celebrate Christmas but still want to be a part of this project, you can always purchase an ornament and give it to someone you know will love it, or donate it to a local hospital, etc.

Like last year, after this project concludes, we will be letting David know how many ornaments sold and how much was raised for Crush Kids' Cancer!

Last year's project was a success, let's make this year's project an even bigger success! 

You can go HERE to purchase our new Crush Kids' Cancer ornament!
