Eager to Help Other Kids, Turner Resident Donates Birthday in Support of The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital

When she was just a baby, Kyra Widdecombe was admitted to The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital after a bad fall. This year, Widdecombe donated her birthday, March 18th, in support of BBCH and the care that made her recovery possible. Instead of asking for gifts, Widdecombe asked her friends and family to donate to BBCH and support outstanding medical care for children in Maine.

“She’s often trying to help other children,” says Widdecombe’s mother, Naomi. In celebration of her eighth birthday, Widdecombe raised an amazing total of $684 and collected a number of toy donations for the children’s hospital.

Widdecombe used the My Miracle Birthday website platform to collect donations. The website allows the birthday donor to personalize their fundraising page and share with friends and family via email or social media.

Every dollar that Widdecombe raised in support of the children being treated at BBCH will be doubled, thanks to matching gift commitments from Saco & Biddeford Savings Institution and P&C Insurance.
