Mark's Angels wants to thank everyone who has helped and contributed to this foundation. Your donations helped us provide many toys and other needs that have put smiles on these precious childrens faces.
This post has been in works for a few days now. The reason being is because I was trying to find the right words to express my gratitude for your generosity. This doesn’t happen very often when a young girl your age displays such kindness and wisdom, way beyond her years. I cannot tell you how shocked I was to learn that for your birthday you asked fordonations for Mark’s Angels instead of gifts. Lexi, you have such a big heart and a loving soul. How I wish my Mark would have survived this disease and had someone like you in his life. Please, remember my words, you are destined for greatness in this world. Your parents should be proud they are raising such a ray of sunshine.
Thank you so much for remembering and honoring our son and raising $400 to help children who have cancer.
Thank you very much Natalya and Allan.
We would like to express our gratitude to your wonderful and generous company for having a toy drive for our foundation. All the toys that will be donated will go to children that are staying in hospitals and fighting cancers and other diseases. Thank you so much for keeping these kids and our foundation in your hearts.
We would also like to thank Tanya Petroff for organizing this wonderful event, it means the world to us having you fighting for these kids
for organizing a two day fund raiser event at UNO PIZZERIA in our Mark’s memory. The funds that were raised will be used to purchase presents for kids at Albany Medical Center, Pediatric Oncology Department. We thank everyone who participated, organized, and contributed towards our goal. We are very blessed to have so many sweet souls fighting for our cause, which is to make sick kids smile, by showing them our love and support.
Dear Laura and Greg Lisnyczyj ,
Mark’s Angels Foundation would like to thank you for your much too generous gift of $1,145 to our cause. This is the second time that you asked your guests to donate to our foundation instead of bringing gifts to your child’s birthday party. You are an amazing person, mother, and friend. To teach your children from an early age that it is more rewarding to give than to receive is one of the most important lessons we can teach our children in life. Thank you so much for everything you and your family have done for Mark's Angels Foundation . We know that without people as loving and caring like you we would never be able to accomplish everything we set out to do to honor and never forget our precious Angel Mark.
There are so many people we would like to thank this year. Without you all our foundation would never be able to succeed. We are so grateful to all our volunteers from Staten Island, Albany, and Connecticut. You are all wonderful, special people, with generous hearts. You give up your free time to help sick children and that is the most precious gift anyone can give. Of course those of you who donate to our charity deserve special recognition as well. Without you, dear friends, we can never exist and bring joy to all precious kids. The most significant person, who we need to thank, is our Angel Mark. Our little boy keeps us going. He is the reason we are here. Our strength comes from our Angel Mark. He was only three years old, but the he was the strongest little boy. Mark was a remarkable little man, with a brave heart, and a mesmerizing smile. We miss him terribly, especially during the holidays, but we also know that he is looking down on us and smiling, knowing that everything we do is to honor his memory.
We are very thankful to our close friend and volunteer Katya Belenkiy for organizing a second year in a row fundraiser at I.S. 24 school in Staten Island on December 6, 2014. We were able to raise $380 at the school holiday fair. It is with everyone’s help, time and dedication we had a successful event. Many thanks to I.S. 24 staff for providing us with grounds for having our fundraiser and for every single person that purchased our merchandise, without your help this would not be a success.
We wish to extend our greatest gratitude to a very special friend Nataliya Douglas and Aldo Ryan .
It is with great honor that we accept your $630 donation to the Mark’s Angels Foundation. We are so thankful for your organizing efforts and contributions of your services to make this Halloween party a success. This helps in remembering our Mark and raising crucial funds for Mark’s Angels Foundation.We are so blessed to have people like you on our side.
We will be using this money to buy Christmas gifts for the children who are sick with cancer and are currently receiving treatments in Staten Island University Hospital .
We would love to especially thank:
Aldo Ryan Entertainment
Chill Party Brooklyn
A to Z Party
Pinto Novelty Party Supplies
Orange Grill Restaurant
We appreciate your support.
We are so deeply touched by your generosity. On October 18th, our Mark would have turned 6 years old. We would have loved to buy him lots of presents and throw him a birthday party he would have
remembered forever, but we could not. Instead, you, our dear friends did such an amazing job organizing a fundraiser at Alex and Ani store in Saratoga Springs, NY in memory of our beloved son. We
cannot thank you enough for your hard work and for always remembering our Angel Mark. As Mark’s parents, we are so appreciative of everyone’s time and hard work, and want to especially thank Tanya
Petroff and Michele Ryan for organizing this special event. This is the second year in a row that these two wonderful women have spent countless hours preparing, organizing, advertising to make this
fundraiser possible for Mark’s birthday. This year due to everyone’s hard work we were able to raise $1156.76 and 100% of these funds will be spent on presents for children who are sick with cancer
and are currently receiving treatments in Albany Medical Center.
Thank you for all the support and for helping us fulfill the mission of Mark’s Angels Foundation.
