    Hello, I came across your organization while searching for grants. I wanted to introduce you to the As a nonprofit, the goal of Ladybug House is to build and operate a freestanding community-based End of Life and Palliative Care Home for Children in the Seattle area. We will offer free end-of-life care to children and young adults with life-limiting illnesses and family respite for rest and renewal from the daily demands of caring for a very ill child. We are raising money to purchase our property. Would you folks be interested in helping us?
