Peter Pan Foundation's Peter Pan
An invitation from Peter Pan Foundation's Peter Pan Birthday Club: Have a party! Celebrate! Blow out candles! Think Happy Thoughts! Make a difference…
Once there was a little girl named Julia who asked, "What if every child gave up one birthday, just one, by giving instead of receiving? How many sick children could we help?" That is how the Peter Pan Birthday Club started. Julia is all grown up now but she still celebrates her birthday the Peter Pan way.
Did you know that the man who created Peter Pan was a great philanthropist? That means he gave lots of money to help other people, especially children. Sir James Barrie also gave the Peter Pan story rights to the Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital in London England. Every time Peter Pan flies, he helps to raise money for sick and injured children. You can do it too! Here's how. Register with the Peter Pan Children's Fund so that they know when you are planning your party. You can register on line, or mail them a note telling them all about your party.
Select hospital/organization and scroll down to choose The Ronald McDonald House of Greater Las Vegas so that you can help provide temporary housing for families who travel to Las Vegas to receive critical medical treatment for their children.
On your party invitation, tell your friends that you want to help kids in need of medical attention instead of a present, they should bring a check for The Ronald McDonald House Charities in the amount that they would normally spend on a gift.
After your party, make a date with The Ronald McDonald House to present us your birthday checks.
Fill out the Peter Pan Gift Application, which you can download here. Send it to Peter Pan Foundation along with a letter from The Ronald McDonald House telling Peter Pan Fund about your birthday donation. If you cannot download the form, e-mail Peter Pan Foundation and they will mail you one – or you can contact Alyson McCarthy at Alyson@rmhlv.org or (702) 461-4883 and Alyson will email you one.
When Peter Pan Fund receives your Peter Pan Gift Application, they will send The Ronald McDonald House® another check for $100 in your name!
The Peter Pan Children's Fund will also send you an official Peter Pan Birthday Club Certificate and Order of Pan crest pin.
Children and teenagers who submit a Peter Pan Gift Application will be eligible for consideration for induction into The Second Star to the Right Hall of Fame. This is how the Peter Pan Children's Fund celebrates extraordinary acts of generosity by young people who support non-profit organizations, like The Ronald McDonald House®, and charities that care for children.
Thank you for your support!
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Peter Pan Birthday Club registration form asks for a "hospital"; however, The Ronald McDonald House® is a qualifed Peter Pan Birthday Club non-profit so you are able to include our name in the "Hospital" field.
