Jackee and her family have a fund that they promote here at One Mission. Their goal is simple. They want to raise awareness about PKU and help fund raise for a cure. See what she has to say about having two kiddos with PKU.

Medical Fundraising – A Transplant Journey

A One Mission Fund was created to directly support Eric and Tammy as they await the call for Eric’s new heart. All funds raised will go directly towards the medical costs and financial support while Eric is on his journey. Right now, as you are reading this, Eric is in the hospital waiting for a new heart. He is first on the list now, after over 900 days of waiting. Over Nine. Hundred. Days. He could really use prayers right now. And we know this is a really tough thing… because the beautiful gift of a new heart means another family out there is struggling with a new loss of their loved one – and they could use prayers too.

One Mission Impact – Haight’s Home for Haiti

It takes just one thought, by one person, to do just one thing, for one family in need. And I tell you what… it’s a pretty darn cool thing when, unexpectedly, some come forward and say ‘yes, sign me up to go with you and help’ and when others buy into the vision and say ‘yes, let me donate to your cause.’ And then suddenly, all these world changers are coming together to *do something* to make this vision happen. 5 men went to build, but over a hundred donated. Each person, a world changer for this family. Each. Person.

One Mission Impact – Community Health Initiative

Meet Community Health Initiative. This program is an ongoing, non profit organization, led by project leader Chris Buresh, that is committed and focused on improving the quality of life- especially the quality of medical care- in the rural communities throughout Haiti. Recently they have started a new recycling center, latrines, and a water treatment center, providing jobs, education, and safe and sanitary resources for community members. If that’s not world-changing work, I don’t know what is!

Cancer Can’t Steal Everything

Her hair lay clumped in her hands as the tears streamed down her face. A tribe of women surrounded her but she kept her gaze down. Lindsey was not alone, but at the same time very much so.

She couldn’t watch as the buzzer clicked on, but I did. I watched her long dark tresses fall to the floor bit by bit. Tiny shaven hairs left in their place. What once was considered her masterpiece was being removed by forced choice. It was coming off one way or another…

Corri’s Mission Trip to Tytoo Gardens Orphanage, Haiti

Going to Haiti has been a dream of mine for years, and I have never understood why. After feeling complacent and waiting for an opportunity to come along, I made a call to a friend and asked if she would ever want to travel to Haiti. At that time, we didn’t have the funds to pay for our stay, but we bought our tickets, praying we could fundraise the rest. Through working with One Mission, we began fundraising right away.

Supporting Kolsie Bixler and the American Diabetes Association

November is Diabetes Awareness Month, and we, at One Mission, know of a spunky little 7 year old girl kicking off a fundraising campaign to raise awareness and help people learn more about Type 1 Juvenile diabetes, a disease she was just diagnosed with in April of this year and which affects countless others across the globe. Hopefully, the more we learn the more we can be a force of change. And Kolsie wants to do just that. She’s raising money for a cure. She wants to turn Type 1 into Type NONE. How cool would that be for Kolsie and all the other Type 1’s to one day be able to say “I used to have diabetes.”

Domestic Violence Awareness Month: Supporting The Hotline

Domestic violence – A major, hot topic in the news, and unfortunately, most of us probably know someone who has been a victim. It affects over 12 million people in the U.S. every single year. That’s huge! That’s why starting this October, during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, One Mission is launching a fundraiser in support of the National Domestic Violence Hotline (www.thehotline.org) to raise money for their important mission.
