Go4thegoal Foundation
March 24, 2011

I have been a pediatric social worker for over 25 years, specializing in pediatric oncology for almost 15 years. I received a phone call from the founder, Beth about 2 years ago. She came to meet me and explained how they could help some of the families I work with. She was so genuine and kind.

Well first of all, when a request is placed such as getting a computer...she or her husband deliver it to me right away...so the kids can start using it!!! Go 4the Goal understands the importance of kids communicating with their friends, school, and family. Also, they give out many tickets to go to the Union games-soccer-. Kids get an opportunity to go with their friends...and just be a normal kid.. even if it is for a few hours!!!. Go4 the Goal also makes sure I have I-touch Ipods...which I give out to the kids that go for radiation treatments, teenagers,...listening to their music makes a tough situation a bit easier. I also can't forget the surprise gift cards...when a family is having a rough day...I am able to give them a gift card so that they know someone has thought about them. I am grateful that GO4the Goal found me.....As I write this review I have a bright smile on my face as I am truly grateful for them and the ease in asking them for help!!!!

The Great!

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

Many ways!!!!! The Season holidays...Bags filled with Ipods, gift cards-visa, itunes A Huge tote box filled with toys(for all ages) so that when kids come to visit me in my office they pick out a prize(after chemo, transfusions, or a rough day when kids just want to talk about how friends aren't understanding, hair falling out, feeling alone Computers to keep up with school work, friends Cameras so that they can take pictures helps with scrapbooking --as they do want to look back

Ways to make it better...

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

Do nothing!!!! Their referral process is easy. Beth, Dr. Rich, and Dennis are great to US!!!!!

MY ROLE:
Professional with expertise in this field & Pediatric Oncology Social Worker.
