Hi my name is Emily and I'm currently the Development Intern with the Pinky Swear Foundation. I've been involved with the Pinky Swear Foundation since I was a sophomore in highschool. I've watched this organization grow and help more and more families over the years and love it more and more each day. This year I'm working to brink Pinky Swear Foundation to USC and fundraise more and reach more families! Please help me help children with cancer and their families by donating and help us reach our goal!
The Pinky Swear Story
In December 2002, nine-year-old Mitch Chepokas, terminally ill with bone cancer, withdrew the entire $6,000 from his savings account and put it in envelopes for the kids on the pediatric oncology floor at the hospital. After giving all of his money away, Mitch made a pinky swear promise with his dad to always help children with cancer and their families after he was gone. Mitch passed away on April 11, 2003, and shortly afterward, the Pinky Swear Foundation was established by Mitch's parents to honor the promise he made with his dad.
Together we can make a life-changing difference for kids with cancer and their families like Mitch did.
Your tax-deductible donation provides families facing cancer with financial and emotional support, including grants for stable housing, reliable transportation, utilities, food and weekend getaways so they can focus on what’s most important: their child battling cancer.
