Make a Tribute Donation – Celebrate a Birthday or other Special Occasion!
A CHASA Tribute Donation offers you a thoughtful way to celebrate a special person or occasion while contributing to our vital mission to help little pediatric stroke survivors and others who have childhood hemiplegia. You can also use this program to raise money by asking others to give to CHASA in lieu of gifts for birthdays, graduations, weddings, anniversaries, and other special days.
How does CHASA use your donations?
Your donations help families of children who have hemiplegia or pediatric stroke. A few of the projects sponsored by CHASA, listed in no particular order, are:
- Foot Orthotic and Hand Splint Grants: These grants provide financial assistance to the family of a child who needs a foot brace or hand splint.
- CHASA Cares! CHASA will send one of our cute Kandu penguins (stuffed of course – not a real penguin!) to a child with hemiplegia or pediatric stroke who is having a rough time - in the hospital, facing medical tests or maybe being bullied at school. Nominations are taken for this program. We hope to one day be able to give a Kandu penguin to every child with hemiplegia who needs some cheering up.
- Research Support: Support of researchers who are investigating hemiplegia and pediatric stroke – causes and treatment of related disabilities. Support of innovative pilot programs that we hope will lead to larger research studies.
- Annual Family Retreat and Retreat Scholarships: This gathering of families of children who have hemiplegia provides an opportunity for attendees to visit with experts to learn about the most current information on medical, therapeutic, and educational issues. There is also the opportunity for parents and children to meet and visit with other families who have been affected by hemiplegia. This importance of this popular event can be summed up by the words of an eight year old girl who has hemiplegia, “I know that I’m not alone. There are other kids just like me.” Your donations underwrite some of the expenses of this event and also provide scholarships for families.
- College and Trade School Scholarships: These scholarships are available for students who have hemiplegia or pediatric stroke.
- Athletic Scholarships: These scholarships are available for students who have hemiplegia or pediatric stroke.
- Education: Development of informational fact sheets, awareness and early identification of stroke brochures, websites, medical conferences, speaker programs, and other means of providing families, the public, and the medical community with information about hemiplegia and pediatric stroke.
