ALTHOUGH OUR 2020 CARING DRIVE HAS ENDED, YOU CAN STILL GIVE TO OUR HEALTHCARE HEROES AT ANY TIME BY CLICKING ON THE GIVING LINKS BELOW OR MAILING YOUR DONATION TO THE ADDRESS SHOWN. THANK YOU FOR #KONNECTINGWITHKAYLIN.
Every year, Kaylin's Caring Konnection does a "12-Days of Caring" Holiday Fundraiser, in our efforts to raise funds to give back to those in our community. Kaylin's focus has always been geared towards children and youth, in ensuring she can bring smiles to their faces (and hearts) during Christmas by simply letting them feel that if no one else cares, Kaylin Cares.
This year, in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic we're in, Kaylin wanted to do something special for the medical workers and support staff who are working tirelessly to help save lives in our community. Many of them are working extra-long shifts with little to no days off. Families are not being allowed into hospitals to be with their loved ones, leaving these workers to not only provide medical care but emotional support to the patients. Kaylin's desire is to let them know that as a community, we see, appreciate, support them, and are honored by the daily sacrifices they are making for families in our community. In so doing, Kaylin's Caring Konnection has konnected with the Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare (TMH) Foundation to make this happen.
How To Konnect:
1.SPONSOR HEALTHCARE HEROS
2. PROVIDE MEALS FOR HEALTHCARE HEROS
TMH has about 300 staff caring for patients with COVID-19. Your gift of any amount will help these heroes. Here are a few examples of what your sponsorship will provide:
Lawn maintenance, laundry service, or house cleaning for heroes who’ve been too exhausted to keep up with chores at home.
A massage following three intense 12-hours shifts.
A babysitter for a date night.
A golf outing or another form of recreation for heroes who haven't had time to enjoy their favorite hobby.
And so much more.
To sponsor Healthcare Heros and/or provide meals for Healthcare Heros, please go to TMH.ORG/Hero.
3. SuperPup PROGRAM
TMH cares for 1,500 - 2,000 children annually who would qualify by age/need to receive a SuperPup.
SuperPup is a comfort, stuffed animal that will be given to children as they are admitted to the hospital or surgical unit. Your gift will help bring comfort to children who face health challenges.
As children proceed through the care that is needed, SuperPup will be by their side. If a child needs a cast, SuperPup will also get a cast. If it is a shot that is needed, SuperPup can get a shot, too. From bandages to breathing treatments, SuperPup will be alongside children to bring the comfort and security they need.
