Give Money ...here ....today : Jacobs Heart

Yes, I am trying furiously to check out some new events and stuff I am getting but, I really need to wrap up Christmas In July so I am just asking you to donate to ...

Jacob's Heart


Jacob’s Heart exists to improve the quality of life for children with cancer and support their families in the challenges they face. Since 1998, we have served more than 500 families who have heard the devastating words, “your child has cancer.” Through the years we have celebrated remission for hundreds of children, and have grieved with families at the loss of a precious child.

Through it all, we remain steadfast in our mission; our reason for existence, an unwavering dedication to providing support to parents and families of children with cancer in Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Benito and South Santa Clara Counties.

Our core values and beliefs:

  • Every child going through cancer treatment needs a strong and supported family able to hold their hand and be part of the care-giving team.
  • When a child is diagnosed with cancer the entire family is in need support regardless of socioeconomic status.
  • Every child’s life is precious and each child’s dignity must remain intact throughout treatment.
  • Because of these beliefs, we make every attempt to tailor our services to each family’s unique needs.

Our Services Include:

  • Bilingual counseling and family support
  • Art from the Heart – heART on Wheels
  • Community education about pediatric cancer
  • Direct financial assistance for families facing financial hardships
  • Celebrations of milestones

After losing my hair and most of my friends because of cancer, high school was extremely difficult. Jacob’s Heart is the only place where I felt accepted and normal. Without the support I got at Jacob’s Heart, I don’t think I could have survived cancer and high school at the same time.

#Donate Here bc ChristmasInJuly or Because I told you too...

So, I am winding down this series and there is a lot ...okay more than 100 nonprofit cat organizations to recognize in California alone and do not get me started with Colorado ...so...here is NARF 

About NARF

The Nike Animal Rescue Foundation (NARF) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization founded in 1985 in San Jose, California.
NARF is dedicated to protecting dogs and cats. We strive to eliminate animal overpopulation through spay and neuter programs and public education. Our volunteers rescue and shelter cats and dogs in need. We provide medical care and locate quality, permanent homes for these animals. We are also a NO KILL shelter. The animals are fostered in our volunteer’s home; allowing us to give adopters a more complete background about their personality and how they get along with other animals, children, etc.
A question we get often is “Are you affiliated with NIKE, the shoe company?” No. We are not affiliated in any way with Nike, Inc. For the touching story of how we got our name, Click Here.
