5 Ways to Support Pediatric Cancer in Honor of Daniela's 11th Birthday This Month


July is Daniela’s birthday month. She would have turned 11 years old on July 24th. Throughout the entire month, we have many opportunities for you to help continue her legacy and make an impact on other kids fighting pediatric cancer.

Here are 5 ways you can honor Daniela’s 11th Birthday with DCF:


1) Create a Facebook Fundraiser


In honor of your birthday (or even Daniela’s on July 24th), create a Facebook Fundraiser for DCF! 100% of the funds raised goes directly to DCF.


For a fun twist, challenge your friends and family to donate $11 to your fundraiser in honor of Daniela’s 11th birthday.

Here’s how to set up your Facebook Fundraiser:

  1. Login to Facebook on a computer

  2. On the left, click “Fundraisers”

  3. On the left, click the “+ Raise money” button

  4. Click “Nonprofit”

  5. Search and select “Daniela Conte Foundation”

  6. Enter a fundraising goal, end date, fundraiser title, and a short description

  7. Click the “Create” button

  8. Invite friends and share the fundraiser on your newsfeed!



2) Shop Amazon Prime Day with AmazonSmile


Amazon Prime Day is coming up on Tuesday, July 12 and Wednesday, July 13.

3) Grab a Drink at BabaluNY


BabaluNY has graciously partnered with DCF this month for their “Cocktails for a Cure” event. They even crafted the Hibiscus Purple Passion specialty cocktail in honor of Daniela and will include it as one of their signature drinks.


Dates: July 7 - 30

Location: BabaluNY (286 New York Ave. Huntington, NY 11743)


During the following select days and times in July, DCF will receive:


Tuesdays | Wednesdays | Thursdays

4:00PM - 7:00PM

10% of proceeds from all cocktails and non-alcoholic cocktails

100% of proceeds from the Hibiscus Purple Passion cocktail


Fridays | Saturdays

4:00PM - 10:30PM

100% of proceeds from the Hibiscus Purple Passion cocktail


What better way to spend a fun night out than helping kids in our community while enjoying a delicious cocktail?




4) Buy a Limited Edition DCF Hat


Hats were always Daniela’s favorite. Wherever she was, you’d see her in a bucket hat or her signature baseball cap with the initial “D”. They made her feel comfortable and confident during hard times when she had little to no hair because of the chemotherapy treatments.


We are happy to announce that now through July 31st (or until supplies last), you can buy a limited edition DCF hat! 100% of the proceeds go directly back to DCF.




5) Donate Blood at Your Local Blood Center



You can make a difference in someone’s life just by donating blood!


During 4 years of Daniela's chemotherapy treatment, she received hundreds of blood transfusions. In essence, the chemotherapy essentially destroys the bone marrow that manufactures red blood cells. The red blood cells are necessary to transport oxygen while the platelets help control blood clotting and ultimately prevent the child from uncontrollable bleeding and possible death.


Donating blood only takes approximately 30 minutes. Whole blood is extracted, and from there, red blood cells can be generated from transfusions these packed cells can then have a shelf life up to 42 days. One pint of donated blood can save up to 3 lives.


Become a hero, join with others to make a difference, one child at a time.



We hope you will join us in one of the many ways to celebrate our inspiration Daniela's birthday with DCF this July!
