It is in that spirit that the S’mores Society was born.
Members of the S’mores Society - an extra special group of Bella Believers - commit to making a tax-deductible donation of $60 a month - the cost of a cup of coffee a day.
As a thank you, they will enjoy special perks at some of their favorite places to dine, shop and make memories...but we believe their greatest gift will come from knowing that they are playing a key role in the life of a family whose child has battled with cancer.
Every year, an estimated 250,000+ new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 21 worldwide. It’s easy for us to tell you WHAT the S’mores Society is and HOW it works but what we want to make sure you know is WHY it matters.
- In the last 25 years only four cancer treatments have been specifically developed and approved for children compared to hundreds for adults.
- Pediatric cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded receiving less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute’s budget.
This is WHY your support matters. It is WHY we come together to serve the most vulnerable children. These children are WHY we do what we do.
Because one death is too many.
