We are so grateful to @vico_newyork for so generously partnering with us to help us further our mission. From today, December 1st, until December 31st, Vico: Costeria Amafitana, located on 313 Main Street in Farmingdale, NY will be supporting TCBF by donating $5.00 for every family package sold at $34.95 and delicious pizza priced at $14.95.
You could help us bring joy to young adults and children with cancer by simply eating incredible food! What a dream! We can’t express our gratitude enough for the owner of Vico, Perry, as well as the staff and patrons for bringing TCBF into your restaurant and choosing to support us. Thank you to @mdesantis24 for connecting us!
Whose ready for some amazing 🍝 and 🍕?!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year again: our annual holiday toy drive! We are thrilled to announce this year's recipient's Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital and Komansky Children's Hospital in New York City. The items on this list were handpicked in collaboration with the members of the child life team at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital and NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children's Hospital. Each item purchased will be shipped directly to The Chloe Belle Foundation headquarters and dropped off at Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital on December 15, 2023. To donate, you can access the link to our Amazon Wishlist by scanning the QR code on our flyer, clinking the link in our Instagram Bio or by visiting our website: www.thechloebellefoundation.org (find direct link below). Remember to click “The Chloe Belle Foundation” as the address when checking out.
Although MSCH treats patients aged 0-21 from all around the world, the child life team wanted us to incorporate more items for teenagers and young adults as they are the demographic who receives the least donations. We felt this was a perfect fit for us as our mission is to help and bring joy to people of all ages with cancer, but our main focus has always been young adults. With that said, donations of all ages are wanted so please feel free to donate however you wish!
For the first time, we will be collaborating with two hospitals for our Holiday Toy Drive! Yes, we have added a second hospital alongside Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital (Columbia affiliated). That hospital is Komansky Children’s Hospital! Komansky is Weill Cornell’s Childrens Hospital. Chloe was at Cornell for a clinical trial at the very end of her life so donating to them is an homage to Chloe’s cancer journey. Komansky is very specific with the items they need. These items have been added to our Amazon Wishlist in addition to the items that were there previously for Morgan Stanley. You can view which hospital each item will be going to next to the item listing. The final date to donate is December 13, 2023. Our goal is to donate a large number of items to both hospitals! Thank you so much to everyone who has already donated. Your generosity has touched us. We are so excited for both these partnerships and for the children to have a very special Christmas. To donate, access our Wishlist by clicking the link in our caption, scanning the QR code on our flyer or visiting our website. Make sure to click, “The Chloe Belle Foundation” as the address! Thank you so much!
We cannot thank you enough for your generosity and support. Your donation is not only remembering and honoring Chloe, but also bringing joy to the patient community at Morgan Stanley and Komansky. You are making a difference in the life of a child (and their family). Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

After much consideration, our next fundraiser, (most of the funds collected recently by donors/what’s left over from our Eighties Beach House Collection will go to this as well), will be to donate a beach wheelchair to the Long Beach Township Beach Patrol Beachwheels program.
Remi (President of TCBF) had the opportunity to speak with Gregory Stagliano, Assistant Administrative Clerk Beach Wheels/Director Long Beach Township Beach Patrol. She learned more about the program and Greg’s personal experience being an attendant (meaning dropping off/picking up). He has experienced delivering beach wheelchairs to people who were close to dying and wanted to see the beach for the last time. This story affected Remi as we all know it was Chloe’s last wish to go to LBI one more time. If she was able too, she would have needed to use this program as she was paralyzed at the end of her life. This is an incredible program that is offering accessibility to people living on and visiting LBI in so many ways.
Chloe loved LBI, the beach and would have been a recipient of this program. This program allows people of all ages who are wheelchair bound or are unable to walk long lengths, including people with cancer, to experience the joy of the beach. This fundraiser honors Chloe while helping and bringing joy to people with cancer/people going through what Chloe went through. This is why we feel this fundraiser perfectly fits our mission.
In order to purchase a full beach wheelchair, we will need to fundraise about $1400 (this price includes delivery). There is also another type of wheelchair called a Hippocampe chair - this chair would be about $4,050. If we can’t reach our goal of purchasing a full chair, they also accept monetary donations that go towards replacement: cushions, safety belts/harnesses, tires, umbrellas, just to name a few items. So, our goal is to purchase a complete wheelchair in honor of Chloe for the LBTBP Beachwheels program but any amount we fundraise will be so appreciated and will go towards the program! @lbtbeachpatrol @longbeachtownship
