FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – May 31, 2022
Northumberland County, ON – Chace Xavier has done another incredible job this year raising much needed funds for Ed’s House Northumberland Hospice Care Centre.
Just in time for his 13th Birthday (May 27) he raised over $2000 after completing challenges such as dying his hair pink, wearing a dress to school, having a condiment shower, shaving his head and having a one-man fashion show down his street (challenge completed for every $500 donated)!
Over the past two years leading up to his Birthday’s, he has raised over $6000 for Ed’s House!
Chace says he decided he would raise money to support Ed’s House because:
“It’s local…I know it’s going to an amazing cause. I know that every single dollar raised will be put to good use….”
Despite having a house fire recently, this teen adds,
“Everyone has helped us, so I want to help others like they did for us.”
Sherry Gibson, Director, Hospice Services comments,
“We are extremely thankful to Chace for his continued support and this year’s wonderful gift to Ed’s House. It was fun watching him complete his challenges to raise money for the continuing care of our residents and families. Chace is a thoughtful, inspiring young man!”
If you would like to help, please send donations to his mother’s email at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can donate on the Ed’s House website https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/m/33152/donation
If you donate on the website, please put in the notes section Chace’s name, that way the family can continue keeping track of the total.
