Our vision of growing the Eminence Kids Foundation into a worldwide initiative comes closer to fruition every day! We are thrilled to announce our first expansion with US organization B.I.G Love Cancer Care which donates organic fruit to the Dell Children’s Blood and Cancer Center in Austin, Texas. B.I.G Love currently provides groceries to over 100 people every day and meals for over 30,000 families each year!
With this growing relationship, since September; we’ve been donating weekly deliveries of organic apples, oranges, blueberries, strawberries, grapes and bananas to families in Austin. We donate 20 pounds of organic fruit each week to help ensure that children going through treatment receive the organic nutrition we believe is essential to their healing and long-lasting health. In addition to providing the organic fruit, we also aim to educate the children on the importance of organic nutrition by providing them with fun, kid-friendly infographics on the health benefits of one or two of the particular organic fruits they’re receiving.
We’re happy to have been welcomed into Austin with open arms and have been truly touched by the impact we’ve made on the families receiving the donations; one family in particular says that they are “trying to eat more organic produce, but have not because it is so expensive.” These donations allow them to feed their family the organic nutrition they know is necessary to fuel a strong recovery – and that’s what the Eminence Kids Foundation is all about.
In addition to feedback from the families, the board-certified, oncology dietician on staff at the care facility also shared her feedback with us, saying:
“It is always a good day for the families when they find out they can take some of the organic fruit home. Almost every Mom comments about how she has been thinking about trying to get more organic fruit into her child’s diet…”
This is another step in the right direction; with staff and families aware of the importance of organic nutrition, and your generous support with donations, we’re able to help more children receive the organic nutrition and education they need to fuel their bodies for long-lasting health.
We look forward to continuing to grow the Eminence Kids Foundation throughout the United States and all over the world, to help every sick child receive organic nutrition and healthy living education that will support their recovery and ongoing health.
