Two Fundraisers to Raise Money to Embrace Family Caregivers

Our non-profit organization, The Center for Family Caregivers, works to embrace, employ and empower family caregivers.

As part of our Empower initiative, we send $500 to a family caregiver in need as often as we can through our CareGifters program. To date, we’ve sent $500 to 11 family caregivers. We want to continue to help as often as we can.

To help raise money for our CareGifters program, we’ve got two fundraisers happening.

Bracelet_Fundraiser1. Bracelets by Casandra
You know Casandra, who cares for her husband, through her blog. She also received CareGifters funds last year. To help us continue to help family caregivers, Casandra created bracelets, including the one pictured, which you can buy at her online store. I love the bracelet I purchased from Casandra during our Craft Fair.

Casandra will donate a portion of the proceeds made from any sales to our CareGifters program. When you make your purchase, you have the option to “Leave ComicVixen Designs a note…” during check-out. In your note, please mention CareGiving.com and this code: CARE10.

2. Thirty-One Gifts

To place an order so we receive credit:

Thanks so much to Casandra and Brittany for their generous offers to help us help you. And, thanks so much for your purchases!

  1. I recommend anyone to buy Casandra’s bracelets. I got one for a gift for a friend and she loved it. I think they looked gorgeous! If I wore jewelry I would’ve bought some for myself too. I might yet buy more for friends or as gifts! Thanks Casandra! Luv ya, Gailxo

    Thanks, Gail!
    I am excited to help out and as I am able to add more things to the site, I will. I understand that most men don’t wear bracelets so maybe I can come up with a design for something that they’d be interested in purchasing, as well.

    Good luck, Denise. Thanks for allowing me to help out :)

    Dear @denise, thanks once again for allowing Casandra to have her beautiful bracelets for sale! I just bought one and anticipate another happy face upon the receiver of this gift, too, just like the other one was! Gail Kroll xo
