Nothing makes me feel more joy than knowing I can help someone, even if it's just by using my digital voice and spreading the word. I'd like to tell you a little story, a story of loss - a story of strength and love. A story that really has no words that can begin to describe its mass. What one mother would do for her child - even if she can no longer touch him and a compassionate, caring community that has gone beyond measures to make dreams come true.

In 2011, Heather Hamilton (@tjzmommy) did the one thing every parent fears most, she said goodbye to her beloved son Zack. She and her family share an incredible journey over on her blog http://tjzmommy.blogspot.com.


Zack was born with a genetic disorder and heart defect, he spent a good part of his life in and out of York Central Hospital in Richmond Hill, Ontario. Zack was an amazing little boy who LOVED everything Elmo! Heather received a call from the hospital nurses just days after Zack's passing to ask if she would like to sponsor one of the rooms that were scheduled for renovation, in Zack's honour.


The fundraising efforts for Zack's Dream Room have been outstanding, really amazing! On March 18th, 2012 an exclusive Family screening of "Being Elmo: A Puppeteers Journey" event is being held as a fundraiser for Zack's Dream Room!




You can purchase tickets to the event here or if you can't attend the event you can always donate to Zack's Dream Room!


Let's all come together and help Heather's dream for her son become a reality! Let's help build that room that will help other sick children find the same joy of Elmo that Zack did.
