Our LiftBuddies were a big hit… we look to make this an ongoing effort.

UPDATE: With our ACF partnership we have been able to sustain this effort and made a new donation of LiftBuddies again this year!!

We’d like to send the BIGGEST of “Thank You!”s to Austin Christian Fellowship and Trish Bode, Leander ISD Board Trustee, for their generous donation and support of Lift Brigade. The 150+ “LiftBuddies” began to go to home with patients and siblings as soon as they arrived at Children’s Blood & Cancer Center (CBCC) at Dell Children’s! We attached the following note to each buddy:

“This LiftBuddy is a great listener, cuddler, and will stay by your side during tough times. Prayers and encouragement have been poured into this buddy’s wishing star. Just open the back to add a wish or prayer to the golden star. We hope this LiftBuddy gives you comfort, reminds you that you are not alone, & brings you joy.”

This donation fits purrrrfectly with our Lift Brigade mission. Thank you all so much for helping us bring comfort, smiles, and companionship to so many kids who truly need it.

From the mother of a CBCC patient: “Thank you Lift Brigade for the darling giraffe. My two year old daughter loves it! She held it all the way home from her chemo appointment! So sweet of y’all to donate those and I’m so impressed with Lance, the young man who started this foundation—so thoughtful of him to use his Make-a-Wish to start a foundation to help families like mine.”
