Josh Cares Announces Closing of the Organization

by admin on July 16, 2020 No comments
Dear Josh Cares Supporters,

I am writing, first of all, to thank you for your generosity and years of support of Josh Cares. As you know, Josh Cares is an organization that provides “Child Life Specialists” to nurture, visit and comfort seriously ill young children hospitalized at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. As an organization, and with reliance on our dedicated Child Life Specialists, we support those children whose parents can’t be at their bedside as often as they would like. With a heavy heart, I am also writing to inform you that Josh Cares is closing and dissolving as a nonprofit at the end of July 2020. It was a difficult but necessary decision for the Board to make.

For the past two years, contributions to Josh Cares have continually decreased. Nonetheless, through additional events we were generating enough funds to remain viable. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to cancel fundraising events for the year, and the recent economic devastation of the pandemic has caused donations to grind to a near halt. Fortunately, we have no employees to lay-off. After all expenses are paid, the remaining funds will go to Children’s Hospital to help pay for the salary of the Child Life Specialist Josh Cares is currently supporting for the rest of 2020.

Again, we thank you for your generosity and your support. Your dedicated help and confidence in our Board and our mission has enabled us to cheer up and nurture many sick children — the most vulnerable among us – and help them cope with the difficulties of being hospitalized without their parents. We ask that you consider making any future donations to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center so that they may continue to provide our children with the outstanding medical care that they are known for.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me (513) 508-6718 or Josh Cares board member Peter McConney at (513) 745-0815.

Sincerely yours,

James Kezele
Josh Cares Board President

The beauty of the world.

I did not answer, but instead reached to my side and pressed the little fingers of her I loved where they clung to me for support, and then, in unbroken silence, we sped over the yellow, moonlit moss; each of us occupied with his own thoughts. For my part I could not be other than joyful had I tried, with Dejah Thoris‘ warm body pressed close to mine, and with all our unpassed danger my heart was singing as gaily as though we were already entering the gates of Helium.

Since then he had been skulking along towards Maybury, in the hope of getting out of danger Londonward. People were hiding in trenches and cellars, and many of the survivors had made off towards Woking village and Send. He had been consumed with thirst until he found one of the water mains near the railway arch smashed, and the water bubbling out like a spring upon the road.

Coffee is a language in itself.

Now, mustering the spare poles from below, and selecting one of hickory, with the bark still investing it, Ahab fitted the end to the socket of the iron. A coil of new tow-line was then unwound, and some fathoms of it taken to the windlass, and stretched to a great tension. Pressing his foot upon it, till the rope hummed like a harp-string, then eagerly bending over it, and seeing no strandings, Ahab exclaimed, “Good! and now for the seizings.

A wild cry of exultation arose from the Heliumite squadron, and with redoubled ferocity they fell upon the Zodangan fleet. By a pretty maneuver two of the vessels of Helium gained a position above their adversaries, from which they poured upon them from their keel bomb batteries a perfect torrent of exploding bombs.

Good design is really good business.

Articles no less passionate than logical appeared on the question, for geography is one of the pet subjects of the English; and the columns devoted to Phileas Fogg’s venture were eagerly devoured by all classes of readers. At first some rash individuals, principally of the gentler sex, espoused his cause, which became still more popular when the Illustrated London News came out with his portrait, copied from a photograph in the Reform Club. A few readers of the Daily Telegraph even dared to say, “Why not, after all? Stranger things have come to pass.

Do Lipton employees take coffee breaks?

by Visitor on January 2, 2014 No comments

It was a cheerful prospect. I asked Perry what he thought about it; but he only shrugged his shoulders and continued a longwinded prayer he had been at for some time. He was wont to say that the only redeeming feature of our captivity was the ample time it gave him for the improvisation of prayers—it was becoming an obsession with him. The Sagoths had begun to take notice of his habit of declaiming throughout entire marches. One of them asked him what he was saying—to whom he was talking. The question gave me an idea, so I answered quickly before Perry could say anything.
