Dearest Marconi Foundation Supporter,
Today I was able to spend several hours at Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC), being a part of Jessie’s.org and their Joy Jar delivery. What a unique and very special time it was for me to take in and experience the faces of these dear and tragically ill children and their equally distraught parents.
Due to the loss of their own child, Erik & Stacey Rees formed the Jessie Rees Foundation and thus the Joy Jars were born. In such a short amount of time, this wonderful group has populated many a hospital, all around the world, and thousands of children, with a Joy Jar to make their day, their holiday, their time in the hospital, just a little bit more pleasant.
As perplexing as the holiday season can be, today’s experience gave me yet another dose of reality as to the plight of children in our beloved Orange County and beyond. The need is great and in order for us to do our job, we need you! And we are so thankful for you!
If you are so inclined, we would appreciate your help today, by considering a year end gift to the Marconi Foundation for Kids, so that we can continue to help strengthen organizations like Jessie’s foundation.
As we give gifts to our family and friends, let’s consider thinking outside of our normal boundaries and help these children who are in such need.
We wish you the very best this holiday season.
All the best,
Priscilla “Bo” Marconi
