THE BLESSING TREE
The Blessing Tree is a gift of love…
Every branch holds a wish from the heart,
Each day is a gift to be treasured by all…
As each gift on this tree…plays a part.
It isn’t the cost…that gives value to love
or the size of the gift on this tree…
It’s the blessing I feel as I share with the world…
that my loved one…lives always…in me.
– B. Steele
The Blessing Tree is a special tradition at Gilda’s Club in which people can sponsor a light, bow, or ornament in memory of, in celebration of, or in thankfulness for a special person in your life. All the proceeds from The Blessing Tree help Gilda’s Club in their mission to support local individuals and families affected by a cancer diagnosis at no charge. The tree will be lit on the evening of December 2nd and remain lit until January 10th.
Individual lights are just $5 each or you may purchase five lights for $20. Large bows may be purchased for $25 each and gold ornaments for $50 each. A display in the clubhouse will feature the name of the person each light, bow, or ornament represents and a letter of tribute and holiday blessings will be sent if you wish.
Purchases can be made by calling Gilda’s Club at 563-326-7504 or via PayPal below.
If you would like an acknowledgement sent to an address other than your own please call Gilda’s Club at 563-326-7504 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with specifics. When emailing, please use the subject line “Blessing Tree.”
