Gifts that do good with the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF)

During my visit to the NY Toy Fair this year, I came across the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) booth and I was amazed at what they’re doing yo help families with special needs children all over.

They have many “gifts and that do good” to choose from like storybooks, stuffed animals, and joke books for kids written by kids. Even more fun is that your child can “donate” their own joke to possibly be featured in a future issue of ‘Little Book, Big Laughs”.

Check out all items they have available at UHCCF.org. ALL proceeds go directly towards families in need!20170315_201430.png

The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that provides medical grants to help children gain access to health-related services not covered, or not fully covered, by their family’s commercial health insurance plan.

Families can receive up to $5,000 annually per child ($10,000 lifetime maximum per child), and do not need to have insurance through UnitedHealthcare to be eligible.

UHCCF was founded in 1999. Since 2007, UHCCF has awarded 13,000 grants valued at $35M to children and their families across the United States. UHCCF’s funding is provided by contributions from individuals, corporations and UnitedHealth Group employees.

Philosophy

The Foundation embraces and supports the concept of facilitating access to health-related services that have the potential to significantly enhance either the clinical condition or the quality of life of the child and that are not fully covered by the available commercial health insurance plan. The Foundation provides financial assistance toward the family’s share of the cost of medical services.

2015_AMM57

Alex’s Lemonade Stand is a foundation created by a little girl who succumbed to her illness, but before she did, she pledged to help others by raising money through lemonade stands around the world. The foundation has raised well over a million dollars since it’s conception, but still has a goal of raising $1 Million Dollars with 1 Million Miles this September.

Check out this video to learn a little more about the foundation and Alex’s Million Mile kicking off this Sept 1st.

Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in the United States for children under 15 and every $40 raised funds an hour of research.

You can join my team and/or donate “Cheryl’s Amazing AMM Team” and help raise money for this extremely important cause by clicking here; https://www.alexslemonade.org/user/260576
