Approximately 1 in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer before their 20th birthday. This means each year, approximately 15,700 kids have a vital part of their lives taken away: their childhood. As a two-time pediatric cancer survivor, Tay Scheibe, created WithLove to connect with and give back to children facing the same reality she once did. With each child she meets, Tay's goal is not only to brighten their day, but remove them from their current battle. WithLove is a nonprofit based in Jacksonville, FL, that has recently expanded to Nashville, TN, in hopes of reaching more children with pediatric cancer. Founded on the heart for helping others and the importance of Childhood Cancer Awareness, our cause is propelled by the personal pursuit to uplift children in the fight. We are on a mission to spread love across the country and pride ourselves on giving back to the community with toy drives and tailored programs benefiting children with cancer and their families. We focus fully on providing joy and at the very least, sparking a smile during these difficult times. WithLove is meant to inspire and give children with cancer the opportunity to be simply what they are... kids!
Ways to Give
March was full of MAD-LOVE!
Volcom kicked off Spring 2018 with their #VolcomRoadRager and hit the East Coast in March with a purpose: "Rage with a Reason!" We were honored to benefit from multiple events for their incredible surf and skate tour. This video highlights their stop in Atlantic Beach, Florida, that we got to attend. Shoutout to The Mother Gooses for the music, Hotel Palms, Ben Katzmann’s DeGreaser, Ozzie Wright and Ryan Burch for making the event an epic party. The tour ended in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, with a total donation amount of $5,000!
Giving children with cancer the opportunity to be kids is our mission, we are #truetothis and we can’t thank Volcom enough for allowing us to be a part of the tour and share that mission with the world.
We are excited to host our very first event for Ronald McDonald House of Nashville! From now until July 23rd, our friends at Pepper Boxing are collecting new toys and games for our Christmas in July Toy Drive that will benefit families staying at RMHC. If you're not local to Nashville, but still want to help us spread some cheer this summer, you can give love here.
