TCAPP is a organization run entirely by volunteers. There are so many ways to help, and it takes all of us to make things better for families and children dealing with pediatric pain.
Please contact TCAPP if you want to get involved, whether it be volunteering to talk to others, social media, sending care packages to homebound kids, creating promotional materials, fundraising, or helping with events We need you!
100% of all donations are utilized for TCAPP programs. Please assist us in raising money for medical conferences, awareness media, camps for kids, and physician programs – your generosity is appreciated.
Plan a Fundraising Event
Do you have a hobby or special interest? Art auctions, walk-a-thons, bake sales, pet parades, golf tournaments, craft fairs–regardless of size or activity, if you are interested in doing it, it can be turned into a successful and truly enjoyable fundraising event! You don’t have to manage on your own and you don’t need to reinvent the wheel. We are here to help you and, if you wish, connect you with others in your community who may want to participate. Just remember, there are as many types of fundraising events as there are individual interests, talents and passions. We are happy to help you get those imaginative juices flowing!
