The children who visit Shriner's Burn Hospital of Galveston, for treatment, many times come here from other countries and they arrive in Galveston with only one parent. All their treatment, travel, lodging and food expenses are paid for by The Shriner's organization, but one not covered, is the expense to call home to their family members.
Approximately 10 years ago or better, 3 businessmen Cruz Cortez, Ronnie Maceo and Myself (Robert Donovan) created "Call Home for Christmas". Through out each year, the three of us hold Free Live Music events here in Galveston and at some point we ask folks, who are able, to make a cash donation or go buy International Calling Cards (land-line). On the 15th of every December, we deliver the cards to the hospital, so that the children and their parent are guaranteed to "Call Home for Christmas".
100% of All Money collected goes to the children.
