Review for Go4thegoal Foundation, Pennsauken, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Dear Go4theGoal Foundation,

I have been volunteering monthly to distribute the "gift cards and toys" to the patients of Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital. You may wonder why I used quotation marks. The simple answer is because your KART delivers smiles, sighs of relief and a moment that every child feels he/she has complete control. It is my sense an ill child has very little in his/her control; all those around him/her are making the decisions. However, when the KART comes around, he/she is encouraged to choose what he/she wants. The emotion I see is heartwarming. Eyes become bright, smiles are broad and giggles erupt. I love when a child says "Is this for me?"

Parents are delighted to see someone enter their child's room who needs no information, has no news to deliver and is there only for joy. They quickly ask questions to find out about this act of generosity and we answer with kindness and warmth. But mostly, the parents smile broadly, through sleepy and teary eyes and say " Thank you, this is so very thoughtful."

Thank you so much Go4theGoal Foundation and your Kart4Kids for your act of kindness. You are making a huge difference for parents, children and volunteers.
