STAMPING FOR A CAUSE
Daniel E. Miller fundraiser for Children's Mercy Hospital
Gratitude is the theme of Stamping for a Cause that was started in 2003 in honor of Daniel Miller who passed away at 6 months of age in 2003. We were grateful for his life, no matter how short or fragile that it was. We were grateful for the doctors and nurses who cared for him, and our whole family, at Children’s Mercy Hospital. We are grateful daily for our life and the love of family of friends as we all make our difference in the world.
For every $10 donation, you receive a set of 5 homemade cards and envelopes.
We created Daniel’s fund to pay tribute to those at Children’s Mercy Hospital who cared for us. The care & compassion we received was outstanding and we hope that in Daniel’s name we can provide contributions that will allow CMH to continue this care for other families & children in their time of need through nursing scholarships and continued education for the Liver Care Center.
Who We Are
On August 21, 2002 Paul and Dawn Miller were blessed with a beautiful baby boy, Daniel Elston Miller. It took four short hours to know something was very wrong with their little boy. Over the next six months Daniel experienced complications as well as numerous diagnoses. Daniel was a viking and fought hard until letting go February 19, 2003. It was determined he experienced liver failure in conjunction with leukemia. While only on Earth for a brief period of time, Daniel touched the lives of many and, for that, we continue to be grateful.
Scholarships have been given to 48 deserving individuals who are furthering their education in the medical profession.
In 2019, we lost Glorida Shepherd, a very dear friend who was consistently a record breaking fundraiser for Children's Mercy. In 2020 we lost Gloria's husband, Roger. This year, the scholarships are given in their name.

Volunteer Your Time
While COVID-19 has impacted our in person gathering, we are creating kits that have all the parts for you to create the cards in the safety of your home. You can make the cards to fill the orders you collect (or just have fun making the cards and using them yourself!). Each kit is $100 and makes 50 cards.
