The Issue: Hospital Stays Unsettling for Children with Cancer

Each year, 44,000 children across North America are treated for cancer. While their peers and friends are able to enjoy other activities, these children often spend frightening days and weeks in a hospital room. Parents often struggle to find ways to make their children's stays more comfortable.

The Campaign: Pillowcases for Children at Local Hospitals

If this Grassroots campaign raises $500, then ConKerr Cancer can purchase the fabric to make 50 pillowcases for sick children who are being treated at local hospitals. Each additional $10 donation will fund another pillowcase for a sick child.

You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.

ConKerr Cancer

When Cindy Kerr's 12-year-old son, Ryan, was diagnosed with cancer in 2002, she began making pillowcases for him to brighten his hospital room and his spirits. He was so cheered by the gift that she started creating pillowcases for other children staying in the oncology unit at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

Since its early days, Cindy Kerr's pillowcase project has grown into ConKerr Cancer, with a network of thousands of volunteers who make the pillowcases spread across North America and South Africa. ConKerr Cancer has created and delivered more than 600,000 pillowcases to children across the United States, Canada, South Africa and Great Britain in the past five years.
