On September 9th, 2015, Ali Gratz, unexpectedly passed away in her sleep due to complications from her kidney disease (FSGS). To honor our dear friend/young illustrator, Rudy’s Little World designed a new version of “Rudy Gets a Transplant” as a tribute. It is a 32 page hard cover book including all of Ali’s original drawings from the first edition. Proceeds will be donated to Wishes & More, a charity close to Ali’s heart. Wishes and More is a 501(c)(3) charity that grants wishes, gives scholarships and assists families of children with chronic and terminal illnesses.
We would like to raise 15,000 to 20,000 dollars for this wonderful charity in honor of Ali. A wish costs approximately $5,000 and each scholarship is $1,000. We would appreciate any amount you can give; each donation of $20 or more will receive a free copy of Rudy Gets a Transplant as a token of our appreciation. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
