Drew's Hope Research Foundation was established in 2007 after the Ferrandino's received the devastating news that their five year old son, Drew, had Batten Disease. Drew, who turned 12 in February, has gone from a child who once ran, jumped, and played to a child needing constant care. Every day is a struggle, but Drew continues to smile regardless.
Over $400,000 was raised to help fund research for pediatric cancer on October 22nd, 2014 at the NYSE. Thank you for all of your support and generous donations.

Seeds to Sew International, Inc is a New Jersey 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to developing educational and economic opportunities for women and girls in disadvantaged communities through education and job skills training. Their programs not only train participants in a basic skill, they also provide training in the basics of business management such as cash management, opening/balancing/reconciling a bank account, accessing loans to grow a business, and record keeping. We also educate participants about local laws and their basic rights, as well as the rights of their children, so that they can advocate for themselves and find support when needed as their income and stature in their community grows.

Thank you to everyone who donated books. We collected over 1,500 new or slightly used children's books for ages baby to 8th grade. The books will be delivered to Philadelphia schools who lack the funding for books and libraries. As many of you know, it is up to the teachers to use their personal funds to provide inspirational reading material for their students. Please look through your bookshelves and donate the books your children have outgrown.
