Yellow ribbons are mysteriously popping up on mailboxes all over the neighborhood. The culprits are a local James River High School student, Peyton and a Virginia Tech Graduate, Natalie who are passionate about helping a local nonprofit.
The neighbors in Hallsley have joined together in this fun and compassionate display that supports the ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation. ASK stands for Assistance, Support, and Kindness provided to families that have a child who is dealing with cancer.
With a $50 donation to the ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation residents receive:
- A yard full of Goldie Bear “You’ve Been Ask’d” signs – signifying your support of childhood cancers – for 3 days.
- Yellow ribbon & bow around your mailbox displayed throughout the 2016 Homearama.
- Signature Goldie Bear.
- The opportunity to “ASK” a neighbor
ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation provides assistance, support, and kindness when kids and their families need it most. From the moment of diagnosis, through treatment and beyond, ASK is there to help. With 1-2 children diagnosed with cancer every week here in Central Virginia, the numbers add up way too quickly. That’s where ASK steps in to help. The Foundation’s Patient Programs are based in the ASK Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU. This means that staff is working side-by-side with the medical staff to make sure our ASK kids and their families receive the support they need from the moment they hear the words “Your child has cancer.”
