Team Ethan would like to give a very special shout-out Mazel Tov to Benja Cook this weekend on the occasion of his Bar Mitzvah at Herzl-Ner Tamid in Mercer Island, WA. Benja has never met Ethan nor does he live in Cincinnati. Benja has no connection to URJ-GUCI, however, Benja was touched by Ethan’s story and wanted to help. He will be sharing some of his Bar Mitzvah gifts with HelpHOPELive for Ethan and will be running a 10K this spring to raise money for HelpHOPELive in honor of Ethan. ... See MoreSee Less
A note from Nancy Sullivan:
Ethan's Book Sale was a success!
Thanks to you, Ethan's Book Sale was a great success. Money raised and sent to HelpHOPELive will total over $2600. I have been told some contributions were sent directly to HelpHOPELive, so the amount this sale generated was even greater.
Ethan's family stopped by later Saturday evening and were so thankful. I believe they were impressed by the number of books, CDs, DVDs and tapes donated. They also have had additional likes on Ethan's web page which encourages them as well.
Special gratitude goes to the many helpers, sorters, loaners of tables, and givers of snacks. The Coffee X Exchange of Pleasant Ridge, not far from Kenwood Mall, gave us a huge container of delicious coffee, pumpkin muffins and coffee cake. I hear The Coffee X Exchange of Pleasant Ridge also has other beverages than coffee. Might be a great spot to stop and refresh...
"Adopt a Book" from Loveland donated three hundred books. Hannah and her brother Alex provide donated books all across the city and they shared with us.
Loveland Magazine, an online publication, gave us fantastic coverage. Thanks, David Miller. We heard many positive comments about the articles.
Half Price Books in Deerfield Township, donated boxes and boxes of movies and music. A special shout to Jen Goldenberg for collecting neighbors’ books and arranging and delivering material from Half Price.
Tom Allen Photography went to Ethan's house and photographed him for us. He then had the image enlarged for us. Tom is a good friend and great photographer.
Jen Smilg was very helpful. Jen runs Ethan's web sites and is very supportive of Ethan's family. She arranged for the coffee and bakery, picking up and returning the thermo pot.
The reason for this benefit was to encourage Ethan and his family and to assure them that he is not forgotten. The success of this benefit goes to you. Without your generous donations of money and the materials we sold, this couldn't have happened.
My favorite story was of three-four year old little girl who approached the "check-out desk" with her choice of books and her purse of pennies. As she slowly dropped in a few pennies her Mom showed her Ethan's photo and told her little girl his story. Hearing this story prompted the sweet child to put in all of her pennies. We were all touched.
Thank you so much.
