Our hands bind us together
Shirley Morgan led a life full of love, inspiration, dedication, and purpose. She loved her family and friends and felt strongly about inspiring and brightening the lives of others. The loss of her grand-daughter Susan McBride shook her world. The thought of a child in the hospital, hurting, in pain, or grieving the loss of a loved one made her take pause and action. As a strong advocate for Susie Q's Kids, her contributions helped children smile and feel comforted.
If she impacted your life or the life of a family member or friend, if our cause inspires you, and you want to make a difference in the life of a child, help us! Your donations will honor the life Shirley led and has the potential to make a difference in the lives of the children we help.
Just Imagine a child:
- In the hospital with a comfort bag of goodies to color, draw, play and feel comforted and inspired as they battle their health issue.
- Placed in foster care/shelter with a garbage bags full of their clothes, away from their family, and placed with strangers. Can you see the importance of having some comfort items of their own and knowing that others cared enough to provide him/her with this token of caring and support?
- Who lost a family member? As a child that person is not only gone, but everyone is different, and they miss the old days. Imagine a child reading a grief book (included in our bags) tailored to young children honoring their loved ones, sharing feelings they may be having, and letting them know it will be OK as their loved ones are always with them in memory.
Help us get bags to these kids! Make your donation today.
Thank you on behalf of Shirley Morgan, Richard Schulte, Susie McBride-Welsh, our team, and the kids we help.
