COVID has thrown a wrench into our Aidan Shea Foundation Greek Gods in the Gutter game plan for 2020! Even though we can't celebrate Aidan in person, we still want to remember the special guy he was on this five year anniversary of his death. From October through December 10 (Aidan's anniversary), please participate in our donation drive and/or purchase Aidan swag items to wear proudly around town (or on your Zoom calls)! Proceeds raised will continue to benefit Lurie Children's Hospital PICU Project Ignite and Gift of Hope.
Monday, November 16: ASF Virtual Thankful Tree Night
As many of you know, Aidan and his brothers created a "Thankful Tree" with their nanny Sarah a few weeks before Aidan passed away. The boys wrote on leaves the things for which they were most thankful. Highlights included the following: "A good school curriculum" from Connor, "Oxygen" from Liam and "Under Armour" from Aidan. :) Celebrate and remember Aidan while preparing your own family Thankful Tree on Monday of Aidan Week. Order your "Thankful Tree" Kit between now and November 13th and our Foundation Greek Goddess Volunteers will deliver a Thankful Tree kit to your home. Instructions and sweet treats included! Only 50 kits are available so get your order in ASAP. Kits will be delivered to Elmhurst and Manhattan areas and can be shipped if ordered enough in advance. Order a kit here.
