What We Take For Granted

Every day, we move through life enjoying simple pleasures and moments that make our days brighter. But have you ever paused to consider the things you might be taking for granted? The joy of a spontaneous walk outside, the freedom to express oneself through art, the delight of sharing a meal with loved ones, or the thrill of a family vacation. For medically fragile children and their families, these everyday moments can be rare treasures.

At A Rosie Place for Children, we’re launching our “What We Take for Granted” campaign this Giving Tuesday. Through this initiative, we aim to shed light on the simple joys of life that medically fragile children often miss out on and how, with your support, we can make these moments a reality for them.

The children get time to be around other kids and spend time have fun, just like any other kids do. Consider giving monthly to help give a recurring place of respite to a child today!

Why This Matters

Medically fragile children face unique challenges every day. While many of us enjoy the freedom to express our feelings, go on spontaneous adventures, or simply indulge in our favorite foods, these children often have to navigate a world filled with limitations. But with your help, we can change that.

Join The Movement

Throughout November, leading up to Giving Tuesday, we’ll be sharing stories, insights, and reflections that highlight the things we often take for granted. We invite you to join the conversation, share your own “taken for granted” moments, and learn how your support can transform the lives of medically fragile children.

How You Can Help

  1. Share & Reflect: Engage with our campaign on social media, share your own stories, and encourage your network to do the same using the hashtag #TakenForGranted.

  2. Donate: Every contribution, big or small, can make a profound difference. Whether it’s sponsoring a special bubble bath experience or funding a day of fun for a child, your donation can bring joy to a child’s life.

  3. Stay Informed: Keep an eye out for our upcoming emails and posts that delve deeper into the “What We Take for Granted” theme. Learn about the real-life stories of the children we support and how your contributions can make a tangible difference.
