Friend-to-Friend 2017 Appeals Campaign

Create Your Own Friend-to-Friend Appeal

2017 Friend-to-Friend Appeals campaign

Andrew and his mother Tiffany stayed at a private ‘snowbird’ host-home for three months earlier this year after Andrew underwent a stem-cell transplant at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Our Friend-to-Friend Appeals 2017 has now officially come to a close, with 42 people having conducted appeals,  292 new friends making generous gifts, and $27,507 being raised. Past HfH guests Tom and Jenn Labandowski of Minneapolis also ran a special appeal Super Bowl week to thank and honor all of the our awesome Philadelphia area hosts, raising another $3,282! In total $31,789 was raised, surpassing the $29,312 raised in the 2016 appeal!!

We deeply appreciate everyone’s support, without which we would not be able to continue the hard-work of growing our Host-network and coordinating with our medical partners so as to have available have lodging and caring support for patient-families in need.

And although the Friend-to-Friend Appeals 2017  is “officially” over, we welcome you to click the ‘Donate Now’ button above at upper right and we’ll add your new gift and name to the appeal!
