Hearts and Hands for Humanity in Partnership with NixonStrong Foundation
The Nixon Whatcott Clean Water Well
Our Goal is to Raise $25,000 for the NixonStrong Foundation
In February of 2018, Nixon Whatcott was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a type of cancer that produces immature bone. This necessitated surgery that would remove part of his femur (large leg bone) and rounds of chemotherapy. Although he would succumb to his cancer just prior to his eighth birthday, during his illness, Nixon wanted to help other kids who were also fighting cancer.
With the support of his family, the NixonStrong Foundation was set up to help families experience things like “travel” memories with their child and also have access to prosthetics. Nixon’s prosthetic leg had enabled him to continue playing the sports he loved so much, and he wanted other kids to have that same opportunity.
In honor of this amazing young man, Hearts and Hands for Humanity is pleased to partner with the NixonStrong Foundation to provide a life-saving clean water well in Tanzania Africa. With the number one cause of death in African children 5 and younger being the consumption of contaminated water, this water well will literally SAVE LIVES! With a child dying every 5 minutes in Africa from contaminated water, this is a crisis worthy of our efforts.
We are also appreciative and pleased to announce that we have matching sponsors who will match all donations for the Nixon Well with a donation to the NixonStrong Foundation. A completed clean water well as pictured below cost $7,500. With every dollar donated toward the Nixon Well there will be a matching donation to the NixonStrong Foundation. This is a wonderful opportunity to leverage your donation to both life-changing and live-saving causes. It is our goal beyond the $7,500 matching donations to raise an additional $17,500 for the NixonStrong Foundation. Help us reach this goal by donating now!!!
Thank you for your compassion and generous support.
