Today is the day to Start these children with the life that they deserved. It’s as easy as clicking the button below to get STARTED.
Over the past 4 years the Q Foundation has helped transport patients from Central America, Ghana, Dominican Republic and other counties around the world to our Shriners Hospitals. It’s amazing to see a young boy who has never walked, living on dirt floor in a foreign country who was bought to the Shriners Hospital for Children with funds from the Q Foundation for Kids® After surgeries, braces and physical therapy then to see him walk out of the Hospital 8 months later.
The vision for the Q Foundation for kids was exactly what our tag line states, “to enhance the experience of the Shriners Hospital Patient”. The foundation was a dream of a number of members of the Order of Quetzalcoatl to help the Shriners Hospital patient children in any way possible. In cases where Shriners Hospitals for Children were not able to assist, for example transporting orthopedic and burn patients from foreign countries to our hospitals in Mexico, the USA or Canada, the Q Foundation for Kids can step in and help transport that patient.
"I think it is an honor to be a Trustee for the Q Foundation for Kids®. The Foundation is working diligently to provide support for our "Kids" and their families as they pursue treatment at our Shrine Hospitals. Our support is intended to cover areas that traditional mechanisms within the Shrine are unable to provide, areas that are critical for patients and their families as they undergo treatment. As a Trustee, being able to help with meeting our goals as a Foundation and help these patients is very rewarding".
“Having a child that is in need of medical care is a stressful time. The Q Foundation for Kids® helps to ease the stress by assisting during these most difficult times.”
"I have seen first-hand the life-changing help that our Foundation has assisted with. Some of our Shriners patients would not have received aid if it wasn't for us. Our Q Foundation for Kids® helps fill the gap where others are limited. I will continue to work for our Foundation to the best of my ability so that these Shriners children get the help they need!"
“After serving as Chairman of the Board of Directors for Shriners Hospitals for Children worldwide, it became clear to me just how important the Q Foundation for Kids® was in assisting with the transportation of Shrine children. The support the Q Foundation provides is invaluable, needed, and appreciated.”
