2017 Charity Collection
Each year Zombie Pumpkins donates a portion of its profits to charity. The chosen organization for 2018 will be announced later this year. In the meantime, read about our 2017 donation efforts below.
Members who choose the Monster V.I.P. plan in 2017 saw a portion of their payment go toward the Children's Health Fund.
The following is the letter Zombie Pumpkins received after submitting our donation:
Thank you for your recent gift to Children's Health Fund. I wanted to personally tell you how much your donation means to the children and families we serve and let you know that your donation helps us bring much-needed health care services to children living in poverty across the nation.
Since 1987, Children's Health Fund has grown from one mobile medical clinic providing care to homeless shelters in New York, to freestanding community-based clinics and a fleet of mobile clinics that serves over 90,000 kids and family members in 14 states in the District of Columbia each year. Today, our medical teams provide primary and preventative care directly where children live, learn and play at more than 360 schools, Head Start programs, shelters, community clinics and more, regardless of their ability to pay.
This year, we celebrate our 30th anniversary and we are especially grateful for friends like you. While we are very proud of what we have accomplished together, the fact remains that more than 20 million children still lack access to adequate healthcare. As we look forward to the future, your continued support is critical in our effort to ensure America's disadvantaged children receive high-quality comprehensive care.
Again, on behalf of the Children's Health Fund, thank you so much for your gift!
Chief Executive Officer
Founded in 1987 by singer/songwriter Paul Simon and pediatrician Irwin Redlener, the Children's Health Fund (CHF) provides comprehensive health care to the nation's most medically underserved children and their families, through the following initiatives:
Health Care: CHF goes the extra mile with their "Blue Bus" -- a state-of-the-art mobile medical clinic that brings care directly to those children with the least access.
Healthy and Ready to Learn: This program addresses health barriers to learning, so that every child can have a chance to realize their full potential in school.
Innovation: Where vulnerable children lack transportation to a specialist, telemedicine technology can let kids "see" specialists who sit miles away.
Disaster Relief: Whether it's a flood, a hurricane or an epidemic, CHF is committed to responding quickly and offering support to recover from the damage and the trauma.
Advocacy: CHF researches areas of critical interest and speaks out to raise awareness, spark national dialogue and influence health care policy.
