CASEY CARES
April 7, 2010

Casey Cares was one of the first organizations to reach out to my granddaughter when she was diagonosed with leuken=mia in 2004. They were a godsend to her and the rest of the family, providing outings,pizza and movie nights at home through the Family Festivities and Caring connection Programs while she was in treatment, support to her parents and siblings while she was in her last days, and continued to provide special together time for the family after her death through their Better Together program. This is why I now devote my volunteer time to Casey Cares. they don't jsut reach out once to a child with one grand gesture, but do the little things in life that matter each and every day throughout their entire illness.

The Great!

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

ways that matter to families every day through opporutunites for special time with the siblings of the sick child, the together time for the enitre family whose funds are too low to provide them for themselves and the commradery between the families.

Ways to make it better...

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

Keep the enitre staff because they are great!

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

getting to know the families Casey Cares serves and helping to tailor activities for their special needs.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

diverse in their backgrounds, which helps to birng fresh ideas and different view points on improving our servcies to our families.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Advertise to a wider audience and perhaps obtain a national celebrity to endorse us.

Ways to make it better...

Kamryn, my granddaughter, had been able to participate in more of the activities Casey Cares offers, but unfortunately, she was too ill.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

limited resources for advertising and difficulty in obtaining cash sponsorships.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Casey Cares does an incredible job of obtaining the donations needed to provide ongoing activities to our families using volunteers and in kind donors to keep administrative costs very low.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
