2015 Holiday Season Initiatives: Organizations & Individual Families
The Believe Project supports local charitable organizations & hospitals who help children with pediatric cancer, and children who are seriously ill, especially during the holiday season. It is our goal to make sure that these children and their families experience special moments of happiness during this difficult time. We also support other children suffering through emotional trauma and other major difficulty. This year we will be supporting the following organizations:
The Mya Lin Terry Foundation: The Believe Project is gifting 26 Portable North Pole Gold Pass accounts to families battling pediatric cancer. These children will receive a personalized message right from the North Pole from Santa himself! In addition, we will be helping them procure their holiday baskets that they give to their families at this time of the year.

K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital: On December 23rd at 10am, Santa arrived with the rest of The Believe Project team to deliver presents to the children who are stuck in a hospital bed this holiday season. It was a great day!
The Believe Project gave this wish list of toys to a Jewish family in Lakewood. Their 3YO little girl fell out of a 2nd story window over the summer and is trached and vented by the in-home healthcare of Preferred Home Care and Nursing Services. She and her five siblings will receive their wish list just in time for the conclusion of Hanukkah!
Charity Kings: Charity Kings is an Asbury Park-based non-profit organization that is distributing toys to over 500 under-privileged families on December 19th in a "Santa's Toy Shoppe" event at the AP Middle School. The Believe Project will be donating toys and gifts to this event. Families who may find it difficult to afford presents for the holiday season will be there and be able to pick a few toys out for their children to ensure that they can provide a joyous Christmas this year for them.
Aiden is 3 weeks old. He was born with a heart defect. His heart is upside down in his chest. He is struggling to even open his eyes for his loving parents who are struggling mightily with this horrible circumstance. His 8-year old brother and 7-year old sister want nothing more than to meet him, and hold him as well. Aiden underwent dangerous exploratory surgery to help devise a plan to give him the quality of life he deserves. This family received some of the items on their wish list from The Believe Project. One less thing to worry about this Christmas.
