About My Campaign
Please join me in supporting Teen Project, which is another proud partnership of my families foundation - Charlies Champions Foundation.
This is an annual gift card drive for teen patients, giving them the opportunity to shop for themselves during the holidays. Our efforts are more important than ever before considering the pandemics obstacles of public shopping for immune compromised teenagers. Let’s lift their spirits and let them know we care. Donate to my campaign, any small amount matters!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
It’s time again for Teen Project and Charlie’s Champion Foundation’s 8th annual HOLIDAY PROJECT fundraiser for gift cards which are delivered to teen patients at NYU Langone Hospital—Child Life Program and Cancer Center for Kids during the holiday season. Every donation will be used to purchase gift cards to benefit teen patients at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island!

Teen Project was founded in 2014 by Steven and Matthew Spirakis, who learned that the hospital often receives toy donations for young patients, but seldom receives appropriate gifts for teen patients. To expand Teen Project, the brothers partnered with T.J, Luke and Tanner Schmitt of Garden City-based Charlie’s Champions Foundation. The foundation was established by the Schmitt family in honor of Charlie Schmitt, a cancer survivor who was treated at the NYU Langone Cancer Center for Kids—Mineola.
As the largest outpatient facility for children with cancer and blood disorders in Nassau County, NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK) is at the forefront of treatment and research. NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island Child Life Program is dedicated to helping children understand and cope with the hospital experience.
