Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. On behalf of the wolfhirschhorn.org community, I’d like to send a HUGE thank you to everyone who participated in the 2014 Halloween Event and Holiday Fundraiser… For posting pics of your kiddos in their costumes, purchasing tote bags, and sharing the posts with your social networks, families and friends — all with the ultimate goal of raising awareness of WHS.

Here are a few fun facts about this year’s event:

  • 19 costumes were shared on the wolfhirschhorn.org website and for the Halloween event (each participant is receiving a tote bag, gratis, thanks to the generosity of our community)
  • A total of 80 tote bags were sold, and we also received a generous cash donation – all proceeds enabled the distribution of bags to event participants, with additional funds raised for future needs
  • Traffic to the wolfhirschhorn.org website increased about 34 percent during the duration of the event
  • 7 new families registered to the site as contributors
  • During the Halloween Event/Holiday Fundraiser period, the WHS Facebook page picked up 250 new “likes”
  • Our Halloween posts reached nearly 20,000 people
So again, thanks to each of you for playing a critical role in both events, and please keep posting your stories – challenges and victories, alike – to the website. It helps all of us so much to take this journey together. We learn so much from each other. (If you need help getting a post up, just reach out to me at anitraschulte@gmail.com.)
