Kids born with cystic fibrosis fight daily against the excessive mucus production that makes breathing a struggle. Their projected life expectancy is around thirty-seven years old.
But the Breathe 4 Tomorrow Foundation doesn’t hit you over the head with their simple video that’s starting to generate funds for the small Washington-based non-profit. All they ask for is $1.
In this economy, it’s the kind of message that works. Pictures of brave kids undergoing treatments, a (relatively corny, but oh well) song about hope for tomorrow, and a simple request. Give them $1, and they’ll help pay for the medicines for kids with cystic fibrosis.
Fundraising videos – especially featuring kids – can be cloying. But this one hit me just right (in the tear ducts). They’re not presumptuous – just like the kids aren’t presuming they’ll live much past high school graduation or college. But you can change that.
Check out the video below. Did it move you? Then donate over at Breathe 4 Tomorrow.
