Trevor's Treasures is such a worthwhile cause. The mission of the organization is one that deserves supporting as it helps bring happiness to so many children with cancer, by giving them toys while they are in the hospital. Trevor is a terrific kid, so smart, outgoing, kind and giving. You can't help by be happy when he is in the room, even despite the sadness you might feel that he is ill. This organization deserves supporting!

This is a great charity. This charity's mission is to help children enjoy their stay at the hospital as much as possible. I can only imagine how hard it is for each and every child to stay occupied each day. The best part is a then 6 year old boy noticed the need of other kids around him. Especially during a time when he was battling Neuroblastoma. The brief times I have had the pleasure to enjoy Trevor Blake's company. I have always noticed how his warm heart is always trying to make someone around him laugh. He has a great personality and wants to make a difference even while he is struggling everyday! This a charity I am honored to support and always will!

As a participant in the fundraisers for this wonderful nonprofit, I am amazed. First, for such a young boy to be caring and self less in all his actions is unheard of. Trevor's heart is HUGE! Many adults could learn from his generosity and kindness. I truly believe he has changed many people's lives over the past few years. After some of the fundraising events, I viewed the pictures of Trevor taking the toys to the children in the hospital. From the looks of their faces he had made such an impact on their spirits. Just meeting him lifts your spirits. No matter what his current health status is, he always seems to put other's first. I just wish there were more people like this in the world, it would be a better place!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways! I have seen the impact Trevor has on the children he meets with. I have also seen the outpouring of support by community members participating in Trevor's events because the belief is so strong that the impact he is making is so valuable.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Copy it over and over again so more people could benefit from such a wonderful organization.

Trevor's Treasures is a fantastic organization that continues to help kids with cancer. They're mission is simple, put a smile on the face of every child that is sitting in a hospital battling cancer! They do this by bring presents at Christmas time, organizing gatherings throughout the year to do fun activities for the patients and bringing in local athletes and celebrities to meet the children.

I have supported this organization since it's inception and will continue to support it, I believe in what they do. I have seen first hand the work these people are doing!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the visits to the local hospitals, seeing the faces of the children they are helping.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Do everything I can to help them grow larger to help children all over the country!

I know too many children who are battling some form of cancer and watching their fights inspired me.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

I played in an annual fund-raising golf tournament.

What would you tell others about this organization?

If you have a desire to help children with cancer this is the organization to do it with. They aren't looking for a cure, plenty of organizations are doing that. Trevor's Treasures is simply looking to help make the fight for each individual just a little bit better.

Trevor's Treasures is the organization conceived by a little boy fighting the terrible childhood cancer of Neuroblastoma. Instead of concentrating on his own suffering, this amazing child wanted to help other children in hospitals and clinics by bringing a little joy into their ordeals.
The first actual incounter I had with Trevor's campaign was at a summer party for the customer's of his grandparents business. Trevor was going around talking to everyone about his mission while holding open his treasure chest. The outpouring of love and admiration for Trevor and his unselfish kindness towards other children was evident throughout the day. Instead of talking about how sad it was to know about Trevor's illness, everyone was enthused to help him reach his goal of bringing some happiness to other children, and we all were "pumped-up" to help in the fight against cancer in any way we could.
Trevor Blake is a truely inspirational person. I am proud to wear the blue and green (colors for neuroblastoma cause) Trevor's Treasures wrist band to bring attention to his wonderful works, and I have donated to many fundraisers organized on behalf of this worthy cause.
While I have not attended any of his joyful deliveries to other cancer victums, I have seen pictures of the celebrations and seen the unexpected happiness in the eyes of those children and their families.
I believe Trevor's Treasures is helping this little boy, Trevor Blake, fulfill his life's purpose here on earth---to bring love, kindness, and joy into the lives of so many while they are suffering the horrors of childhood cancer, and to bring awareness of the need for funds for research to cure neuroblastoma and other cancers.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have personally seen the results of this organization through photographs of Trevor's deliveries of gifts to children at hospitals and clinics. Usually these events are only attended by the sick children and their families and the medical staff because of the need to minimize the possible exposure to germs. I have also personally seen the effect Trevor's enthusiasum has on people: It brings awareness of the needs of those suffering from cancer, and spurs people on to donate money and/or time to help.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't change a thing. This is a heartfelt effort by a little boy with cancer to do good in this world. He is the driving force behind this organization, and his works and intentions are pure.

Trevor's Treasures is a fantastic organization, created at the request of it's namesake - Trevor. Trevor is a 9 year old boy who has been fighting a rare pediatric cancer for 3 years. He fights hard everyday and is an inspiration to all who know him. What's more inspiring is his continued wish to see other kids going through similar situations have some joy in their lives. Through his organization he has delivered many, many toys, food, puppet shows & much more to pediatric cancer units in several hospitals. Trevor is still battling his cancer and yet he is still helping other kids.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the joy it brings to sick kids faces.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None - other than giving it more funding!!
