Creating Unforgettable Experiences for Children in Need
Specifically, children with cancer.
Our internationally recognized play-oriented programs bring attention to the power of happiness in healing.
Volunteering with the For a Day Foundation was the best experience I've had in the past 10 years spent doing volunteer work. The people creating the event are super enthusiastic and keep you updated on everything (very very easy to contact), it is a beautiful cause, it brought together the Rochester community, and the people I had the opportunity to volunteer with have continued to be my friends even after the event. Overall a truly amazing experience and I wouldn't have been connected with this had it not been for VolunteerMatch and I am very grateful for that.
