Caroline Symmes Endowment

My wife Libby and I lost of oldest daughter Caroline to cancer in 2009. We set up an endowment at Riley Hospital for Children and began raising money in the spring of 2011. To date, The Caroline Symmes cancer Endowment  has raised right at $2,000,000.00. Many of you, along with your employees have done a wonderful job helping us reach our lofty goal of $8,000,000.00. So, I’m asking you again this year to please participate and sell icons (click here to view icon example) in your stores for November & December. Some members sell them at different times of year, which is fine too.


Click here for an attachment which outlines a program to entice employees to sell the icons who might be motivated by a prize. We have had a few individuals sell over 1000 icons & refused any incentive, they were doing it out of the kindness of their heart. Either way, Libby and I greatly appreciate any help we can get from you!


Please pass this email along to all of your employees, you never know who is willing to really get involved & raise lots of money. If anyone has any questions, please print out the 1st attachment that has contact information for both Libby & I.
