What an incredible blessing to receive a call to stop over at Springs Window Fashions here in Middleton this morning and be presented with a check in support of Restoring Hope Transplant House for $20,000.
It has been a truly incredible 2-3 months of continued fundraising as we work so hard behind the scenes to ensure the long term future of this house for future generations. We look forward to sharing in greater detail about a string of other significant donations to RHTH and construction as those pledges come in and become official.
Coming out of the worst pandemic of our lifetime and currently facing historic prices for lumber and building materials, we are truly in awe of the love and generosity that has been building for our mission over the past few months.
Major donations like these are never for a house but because people have had their hearts so completely touched by the families that call this house their home while in search of a second chance at life through the miracle of transplantation. We are so grateful to our families who so freely share of their life changing stories as a way to give back. It truly helps!
Thanks to our “Good Neighbors” at Springs and to all who have donated so generously and worked so hard behind the scenes to get this house through Covid and closer to realizing our ultimate dreams. We love and appreciate you all!
A new RHTH e-newsletter was just sent out with several updates. We are grateful for all of your love, friendship and generosity that has helped to get this house through the worst pandemic of our lifetime and back to more normalcy with each passing week! We have been working really hard for our families and for future of this house! We appreciate you all!
What a wonderful weekend it was to participate in the sendoff ride for Mark Scotch and his Organ Trail bicycle ride that will be taking him all the way from Madison to Louisiana to meet up with the friend Mark donated a kidney for. So good to see so many friendly old faces from the transplant community, too. What a joyous day!
Follow Mark and his team as they head south on his website. All the best to the entire team, it was honor to be included!
Last weeks massive telephone-internet-fax outage that hit our area has finally been restored and is entirely operational now as usual. If we missed your call last week, please call us back at 608-831-1726. Your call is important to us!
A new RHTH e-newsletter was just sent out to share our new video, other updates and even some fun upcoming events. Please take a few minutes to read it over and share if you would. We appreciate your interest in RHTH and our transplant families. Have a great week everyone!
We love our transplant guests Dave, Alanna, Nancy, Chuck and Linda for capturing the true beauty of Restoring Hope Transplant through their heartfelt words and stories in this new video. It is extremely powerful and from the heart when guests tell our story. When it makes you emotional and fills you with such joy every time you watch it, you know it’s finally ready! Our heartfelt gratitude also to Big Dreamers United for making this beautiful video possible and for gifting it to our family of guests to enjoy.
It has always taken an entire village to make Restoring Hope possible as a non-profit. As we prepare for the future of RHTH and expansion, we need the help of our RHTH family and friends to collectively help raise the type of funding that will cover the expenses of this major project. Our mission is to always make this house available at a reasonable rate for our families in need. The generosity of major funding for construction and operations ensures that we will keep this house affordable for those who need it most while also providing the safe refuge of caring and community that our families have come to depend on and trust since we opened.
We have the unique opportunity to make that dream a reality here in our community through our mission and our plans. If you know of any individual, family, foundation, group or business that would have their hearts so touched by the stories in this video or by Restoring Hope’s mission that they would consider becoming a donor to our renovation efforts, please contact RHTH Executive Director Cindy Herbst at 608-831-1726 or via email at email@example.com. If we can get to $150,000 more of our $1 Million goal, it would be huge for the long-term success of this house and our plans. Together, we will create one of the greatest gifts to the transplant community ever. Please help and thanks for watching!
