My Favorite Charity

What is your favorite charity that you support?

One of my favorites in COTA. COTA is an organization that helps children and young adults who are in need of a life saving transplant. These transplants are very expensive and there are situations where insurance companies just don’t help out at all. This is where COTA steps in and helps the family with funds and fundraising. Monies that are gathered are used not only for medical expenses but also for lodging, medical flights, food and other necessities.

It is so important to me to help these families in their times of need. We were once a family with a child waiting for a transplant and fortunately for us, our expenses were covered 100%. There are a lot of families out there who are not as fortunate and really, should they have to deal with the hardship of not having enough money for their child’s medical care? I don’t think so. We need to come along side these families and help them out!

You can read more about COTA at their website. While you are there, go visit some of the kids who are waiting for transplants. You might discover a child in your area that you can help out!
