“We are only able to continue our work that we do through the support and dedication of groups and individuals like the Susan and Jack Holender Children’s Fund. We thank Susan & Jack for their incredible support through our Autism Speaks Walk – Philadelphia. Their contribution will help us to enhance lives today and accelerate a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow!”

Autism Speaks

“Our son spent a month on a ventilator at CHOP. When it was time for our discharge, we met with the palliative care team so that our son could maintain his quality of life at home in the least invasive way possible. The Susan and Jack Holender Children’s Fund supports the efforts of those seeking palliative care so that children, like adults, can maintain a quality of life in a comfortable, home environment surrounded by the people and things they love the most. If you are looking for a worthwhile cause to support, this is one I would endorse 100%.”

Cindy Singer

“If you have ever seen a child suffer, you must want to help. Susan and Jack Holender are passionate about doing just that. The Susan and Jack Holender Children’s Fund supports children with a variety of illnesses and needs. It brings them hope and comfort when they most need it. I am proud to be part of such an important project.”

Mary Groll, President, PerfectWright

“If the Susan and Jack Holender Children’s Fund eased the life of just one child, my efforts in working with Susan and Jack would have been rewarded.
This fund will ease the lives of many, many children.”

Lenore C.Z. Suhanec, Creative Director, Pink Sky Studios

It has been a pleasure assisting Susan and Jack Holender increase awareness of their fund through Social Networking. The Susan and Jack Holender Children’s Fund will truly make a difference in the lives of children – and it has been a privilege and an honor to be a part of a wonderful cause. The Hollander’s passion and commitment is genuine and heart-warming. Their willingness to give so much of themselves for their community, families of patients and the precious children who receive care is remarkable. I applaud Jack and Susan for all their efforts and wish their fund success.”

“I was blessed with two beautiful, healthy children, for whom I am thankful every day. Yet having been a teacher in the Easton District and currently a substitute for the Bethlehem District, I see so many children that need a variety of mode of help and support, yet aside from Child Social Services, or sticking a label on the child, the teachers, parents and admin don’t know where to go. I share this with you for no other reason than that I feel I’m no longer alone in this battle I’m fighting for today’s youth, not after knowing people like yourselves still exist.”
