|This Valentine's Day, send a love note to a Shriners Hospitals for Children® patient|
Keylee is an all-American country girl. She loves climbing trees, playing soccer, and shooting hoops. But, recently, her life was changed in an instant when the ATV she was riding with her friends suddenly flipped over and landed on her. Keylee was trapped underneath, and soon she was engulfed in flames.
Early on, Keylee wasn’t sure she was going to make it. “I want to go to heaven, but I don’t want to go today,” she told her dad. The team at Shriners Hospitals for Children® has been hard at work mending Keylee’s body, and her parents’ hearts.
This brave girl has endured 22 surgeries in just five months. But her battle is far from over. She will need more surgeries throughout her life, as well as ongoing physical therapy three times a week and occupational therapy twice each week.
For today’s Daily Action, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, take a moment to send a patient like Keylee a love note on the Shriners Hospitals for Children Wall of LOVE.

|Please Stop Punishing Tamir Rice's Family|
It's hard to forget the story of 12-year-old Tamir Rice, who was fatally shot by Cleveland police within just a few seconds of the officers pulling up to the park he was playing at. Over a year later, a grand jury ruled not to indict the police who murdered him. But the story just keeps getting worse, as his family continues to be reminded of the tragedy with bills and fees for the investigation and lawsuit.
For today's Secondary Action, read about how Tamir's family was almost charged thousands for his last ambulance ride, and then please sign the petition urging Cleveland to stop punishing Tamir's family.
