Making Some NOISE!!!

on October 22, 2012

In recent weeks I have been on the hunt for a job!  It is not going well at all!  I have tried for a few nursing jobs, but have not heard back from most of them.  I have looked into retail work, but they all want weekends, and because of Richards schedule, I can’t work on the weekend.  So, what is a girl to do!?

Well, I am going to MAKE SOME NOISE!!   Last December, we went into Boston, to see Alexander’s Picture on the National Angel Quilt It was a beautiful, yet sad site to see.  WAY to many lives lost to STUPID CANCER!

              

While we were there, we got to talking to the founder of the Make Some Noise Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation and his mother who is the Chairman of the foundation.   They were interested in starting a Boston Chapter.   Time marched on – we had Alexander’s anniversary – Julia was born!  Then, a two hour phone conversation last week led to the start of the process!!!

YIKES!  What I have I gotten myself into!?? Well, something AWESOME!  Make Some Noise was started by Malcom Sutherland-Foggio while he was fighting his own cancer at the age of 10 he saw the lack of funding given to pediatric cancer research and wanted to make a change!

As I have never done anything like this, I am going to need a LOT of help!  It can be BIG or SMALL – anything is wonderful!

One of the things I will need the most help with is Noise Night!  Noise Night is a fundraiser where we will – well, MAKE SOME NOISE!!!  I have a lot of ideas running around in my head for it!  If anyone has experience planning a fundraiser, please let me know!  If you would be able to help with Raffle or Auction Items, let me know!   The Foundation has set January 12th for Noise Night – it is an event that will happen in multiple locations.

Please watch this video to get an idea of why the need is so great – warning though – you might need tissues!

    I will help. My school has already earned almost $1000.00 in memory of Alexander already. I will help. Just let me know how.

    Oh, my goodness. What happened since I saw you Wednesday? This all sounds great. Is it a paying position, I hope, for your sake? (I shouldn’t ask, but since you’ll be in my business now, I thought that I could ask.) I want to hear more. But, I think that ConKerr would like to donate cases, a basket, something. Keep me posted, so I get a better idea what’s involved, and think how we can help, with others, which is your part, to get you and the cause launched.

    Sleep well. (I can now identify that whirling noise that I’ve been hearing from the east. It’s your brain.)

    Nancy I just watched the make some noise video by Malcolm at the bottom- what a kid (he talks like a 40 year old; God bless him) stupid cancer is just so unfair and yes i did need tissues to watch him… thanks for sharing this important video and foundation sue

  5. Malcolm is amazing – I’ve also contacted the organization and we’re planning to show them around Columbia University Medical Center. Feel free to contact me at js2807@columbia.edu if you need any fundraising advice.
