ALL PROCEEDS GO TO KALEB’S CAUSE
Kaleb’s Cause Inc. is a nonprofit created by Kale and Marissa Waddleton that raises money to help relieve some of the financial burdens of having a sick child.
“Our son, Kaleb Waddleton, was unexpectedly diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy at just 3 months and needed a heart transplant. He had to stay inpatient while we waited for the call that a perfect heart was found for him. This timeframe was unknown.
Our family, friends, community, and complete strangers stepped up and donated money, baskets of treats, dinners, fundraisers, and prayers.
Because of this, we were able to stay by Kaleb’s bedside 24/7. Thank you was never enough for all the generosity we received during the hardest time in our lives. In 11 weeks and 2 days, we received the news that Kaleb had a heart available for him. 7 days later, we were heading home. He is now living like a normal 5-year-old.
We knew early on we wanted to give back and help families with sick children like so many people helped with us.”
-Kale & Marissa Waddleton
Kaleb’s Cause has successful raised over $100,000 by doing car shows for a local family needing that financial help.
