Wreaths For Hope™ is an organization that raises money through the sales of balsam ribbon wreaths to support funding for cancer research and provide much needed help to our veterans in need. Our purpose, is to partner with large and small foundations, groups, and organizations to help raise money while bringing awareness to cancer and military support programs and services.
Our mission, is to uphold our community values with the integrity, compassion and personal ethos in which the organization was founded to help raise money for what the human spirit believes in.
Our vision for the future is to build this organization beyond a fundraising effort, making it into a well-known national movement for the fight against cancer and supporting veterans who served our great nation.
The mission of Team Mathias is guided by what was important to Mathias during his battle with cancer. He was determined to make a positive impact in the lives of kids diagnosed. In a general sense, this meant calling attention to the facts about pediatric cancer. Childhood cancer research is consistently underfunded and for many cancers, treatments are severely out-dated and awareness leads to funding, and ultimately to research and better treatment options. On a daily and personal level, Mathias’s heart went out to kids in the same situation. He identified where he could help and his ideas shaped the work we do today.
