Every Gift Makes a Difference in the Life of a Child
Please consider donating to the Shriners Hospitals for Children®
As a small business in a growing city, Amazing Spaces® is privileged to have earned the trust of our loyal customers over the past 14 years. As our company grows and continues to take root in new communities (an example, our new location in the Houston Medical center which opened in April 2012), we continually seek opportunities to do our part to help improve the community.
This year is our fourth year to participate in the Texas Self Storage Association led collection efforts for the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Galveston. If you stop by any of our four locations, you’ll undoubtedly be asked, “Would you like to donate $1 to the Shriners Hospitals for Children?” We ask because we know our customer and communities well. We know that our customers have the same values as we do and that together our resources and efforts can truly make a difference. Every year we are blown away by the contributions donated by our customers and every year Amazing Spaces matches that donated total.
In April of this year, many of our employees jumped at the opportunity to visit the Shriners Hospital for Children in Houston. It is important to us to understand how the hospital and their patients benefit from the donations we request from our communities. We feel it’s our duty to learn as much as possible about the hospital so that we can report back to those who’ve donated. We were amazed at the innovative work that the hospital does and at the level of care that goes into the child’s experience there. The building itself was cheery; our tour guide and the other professionals we had the pleasure of meeting were joyful to do the work that they do. They heal and improve the lives of children – what a great job to have! All of our employees who got to participate in the visit left feeling proud that our donation program has contributed to the good work they’re doing.
Amazing Spaces Storage Centers and the Texas Self Storage Association (TSSA) have supported the work of the Shriners Children’s Hospital for the past nine years. Together we have almost reached $350,000 in donations since the inception of this donation campaign. Amazing Spaces has installed an online donation feature
to our homepage for your convenience. We hope you will join us in making a difference in the lives of children with disabling medical conditions and serious injuries by donating today.Your gift will give hope to the thousands of families helped by Shriners Hospitals for Children® each year. Since 1922, nearly a million children with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate have been helped through Shriners Hospitals for Children®. Their ground-breaking research is also helping to uncover new knowledge about complicated medical conditions, which is helping people around the globe.
Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated, and bit everything helps. Our goal is to raise $1,000 by 10/14/2012. We will send updates on our progress in the weeks ahead! Thank you for your support.
