World of Children®Recognizes Claire’s Place Foundation

September 17, 2016
Claire’s Place Foundation Recognized for Supporting Children Living with Cystic Fibrosis
World of Children® Youth Honoree 2016
The only way we ourselves can get through pain and suffering is by giving to others – so that is what my family and I decided to do.”  ~ Claire Wineland
These are the words that started our foundation 6 years ago.
World of Children® Award improves the lives of vulnerable children by funding and elevating the most effective change makers for children worldwide.  This year, our Founder Claire Wineland, has been awarded the Youth Award 2016 for the work she does here at Claire’s Place Foundation and with children living with cystic fibrosis around the world.  We are humbled and grateful to say the least.  Please take a minute and visit their website where you can see profiles of all the 2016 Honorees ~ quite an amazing group of individuals.
As part of their 2016 Award, World of Children® has initiated a matching campaign for Claire’s Place Foundation.  All donations made through this Crowdrise link between September 15 and October 21, 2016, will be DOUBLE MATCHED up to $5,000. That means your $10 donation turns into $30 , your $100 turns into $300! And because they are underwriting all processing fees, 100% of your donation goes to Claire’s Place Foundation and the families we support!

We don’t want to miss out on a single penny of this amazing offer to help children living with cystic fibrosis. World of Children will match our $5,000 with another $10,000 making a grand total of $15,000!  We can do this with your help.

“When a child is sick, especially with Cystic Fibrosis, nothing matters more to them and their family than being able to be together… but often that requires a lot of love and support from others”

On behalf of all the children and families we will be able to assist with your donations, thank you!



It’s that time again!  Join us on October 8th for our 4th Annual Poker Event benefiting children and families living with cystic fibrosis.



samantha-frossSamantha and Kathie have quite a rare situation, both mother and daughter have cystic fibrosis.
Claire’s Place Foundation is a life saver!  They helped with rent and power, saving us from being evicted. We are a family with mother and daughter with CF and had an extreme circumstance come up that was unexpected right after my daughter spent 27 days in the hospital. Thank you for your kind and loving support
