The Good Give

This summer the Trebesch Family wanted to do something good to give back to those that helped them so much through a very hard time in their lives. You can help honor them and the memory of their beautiful son here, as we give back to these amazing organizations. Share in Lindsey’s vision of what this could look like!

Hello family and friends, I am hosting an online fundraiser with Usborne Books and More to purchase books for two places that are near and dear to my heart - Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis and the Ronald McDonald House located in the Hospital.

I have chosen the hospital because it is a great facility, and they really supported us when we were there with Collin. The staff became like family to us, and they treat everyone with love and respect. They are willing to go above and beyond for anything, and that’s something that really makes a place feel welcoming. They had a book cart that came around for the kids to pick books off it to read, and Collin enjoyed that when he was recovering from surgery. I would love to get a variety of books for the hospital to have and put on their reading carts for ages newborn through teen ages. The other thing you guys can help me with is to purchase the book “All Better” so that the hospital can give these away to the kids for them to keep. My goal for this is to present the hospital with at least 50 copies of this book, if not more!

I have also chosen to present books to the Ronald McDonald House located inside the Children’s Hospital. This is another facility that is close to my heart. This place is a “home away from home” setting, and they are very welcoming and inviting. We were able to utilize them when Collin was in for his surgery, and they provided a place to sleep and shower, as well as a place to get food- whether it be from the pantry or from the group that was providing the meal. This facility was also able to go above and beyond when Collin was on life support, and they provided a room for our entire extended family to utilize if any of us needed to get out of the CVCC (Cardiovascular Care Center). I would love to present them with books to keep in their facility for the families with kids that come in to get away from reality, so to speak. These will give those kids entertainment while the parents do what they may need to - laundry, shower, or just relax.

Thank you for helping me reach my goal and for helping me do GOOD.”
