How Can I Help Ferocious Fighters
As an all volunteer non-profit, we rely completely on volunteers to get all of the awesome work we do done! So, whether you'd like to help out at an event, arrange an event locally near your home, do craft work at home, or make a donation, all help is very needed and appreciated!
Ferocious Fighters has grown a LOT in the last 4 years. When we began, we had been told that CRPS was exceptionally rare in children and that we wouldn't find very many, our board planned to send out 10-20 care packages the first year . . . instead we sent 57. Since then, without any advertising, through sheer word of mouth and social media, Ferocious Fighters has grown nearly exponentially. During our second year, we sent out 98 care packages for a total of 155 - then during our third year, we sent out 165 care packages, bringing our total to 320! Then, in year four, we beat all of those years combined and sent out 364 care packages!! This brought our total to 684 care packages by the time we turned 4! All of this without any professional staff and with donations! We are excited to see what is in our future, but nervous too, as you can see in the graphs above, our nominations are not slowing down! So far, starting out our 5th year, we have already sent out 52 care packages and we currently (as of the morning of January 1, 2019) have a waiting list that includes 66 kiddos!
Make a Donation
All donations go to fund our programs including sending care packages, quarterly encouragement mailings, welcome packages, and awareness activities. Ferocious Fighters currently has no paid staff members, so your donations go straight to programs benefiting the kids of Ferocious Fighters.
