Our mission is to provide free technology to children with cancer and other serious illnesses to support their education, as well as their social and emotional well-being. Technology, including iPads, laptops, robots and Internet access, enables our children to continue their education during treatment while also remaining connected to family, friends and medical providers. We currently support children ages 3-18 in the following states: ME, MA, NH, VT, RI, CT and NY.
Kids Helping Kids
Eleven year old Laiken’s PASSION is creating art and music. She also has a great deal of comPASSION for others who may be struggling and feeling alone due to the pandemic. Laiken decided to use her talents to create her own art and music to be given to children to enjoy while hospitalized and feeling isolated from their worlds. With over a year of support from her EXCEL teacher Donna Temm and her parents, Laiken created gift bags for our Grahamtastic Superstars to receive with their laptop or iPad. Each gift bag includes a thumbdrive filled with her original art, music and videos and a set of colored pencils and sketchbook so the recipients can create artwork of their own. In our work here at Grahamtastic nothing warms our hearts more than kids helping kids! Thank you Laiken, we are so excited to share your talents with our Superstars!
This year we are celebrating our 10th Anniversary as the Sanford Mainer's charity of choice. We are very appreciative to be part of their winning team and also that Partners Bank has pledged $100 a homerun to Grahamtastic, also for the 10th year! We'd love to have you with us in the ballpark at our game night, June 22nd, 6:30 pm at Goodall Park in Sanford, Maine. Go Mainer's and Thank you Partner's Bank!
