As part of The Gallery Collection’s charitable donation program, we made a donation of 1,000 holiday cards to Brooke’s Blossoming Hope for Childhood Cancer Foundation. The mission of Brooke’s Blossoming Hope is unique in the two-fold concept of helping children with cancer directly by providing them hand crafted headwear during the difficulties of hair loss, but also by raising awareness of the need to both find and fund cures for pediatric cancer.
Until her diagnosis with cancer in November 2010, Brooke Hester was a regular happy, healthy little girl. Her battle with Stage IV Neuroblastoma cancer has led her down the path of hope to find cures, and Blossoming Hope now exists to make a bigger difference for other children globally fighting all kinds of pediatric cancer.
The wonderful people at Brooke’s Blossoming Hope for Childhood Cancer Foundation were kind enough to send us some of the beautiful hand crafted headwear they create. One can imagine the joy a feathery flower can give a child who is fighting such a courageous battle. We’ll be sure to share our beautiful gift!

The Gallery Collection was extremely proud to be able to donate 100 holiday cards to both the Ronald McDonald House of Long Branch and the Ronald McDonald House of New Brunswick, both located in New Jersey.
The goal of the Ronald McDonald House is to provide a true “home away from home” for families of seriously ill children receiving care at medical facilities near the Long Branch and New Brunswick houses. They also offer Family Rooms and a Hospitality Suite in the pediatric units of four hospitals in Monmouth and Middlesex County.
The Ronald McDonald House understands how important it is for families to be together when a child is facing a health crisis. From a private room to a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities, families have access to all the comforts of home. They also have the support and friendship of other families. Families often get to know one another and share advice on the challenges of having a sick child.
The holiday cards that were donated to both of the houses were sent to supporters and donors as a way of thanking them for the help they have given throughout the year to such a wonderful and important place.
