Sam's 22nd Birthday

It's been too long.

This year is a bittersweet one for us at Sam's Fans. This year it's been 11 years since we lost Sam, who passed away when she was 11 years old. She would turn 22 this year. In order to honor this very important year we are inviting all of our friends, family, and supporters to join in.

Honor Sam's Life

Sam's birthday is on March 15th.

Yet we don't just miss her that one day of the year, we miss her every single day. The same way, you can participate in honoring her life all throughout the year in one of these ways:

Birthday Fundraiser

Fundraise $110 or $220 on your birthday by asking your friends and family to make donations to your fundraiser instead of getting you gifts.


Create your fundraiser on Facebook.

Monthly Giving

Become a member of our Bring the Joy Monthly Giving Program. Commit to donate $22 (or $220) each month and ensure that kids get consistent therapy!


Become a member.

One-Time Donation

Make a one time donation of $22 (or $220). Your donation will go a long way in bringing joy and healing to many kids through music and art therapy.



You can also let us know when it is your birthday and we will send you a reminder a couple of weeks before it for you to create your fundraiser:

Other ways to get involved:

Share on Facebook or Instagram your favorite picture and/or memory of Sam.

Create an event to honor Sam and her legacy. 

Thank you for joining me this very special year in honoring my daughter.
