It’s fun! If your event is not listed below let us know and we will add it.

You don’t have to run, bike, or tri. Just let us know what you want to do and we will provide you with a page. Be as creative as you can be. Bowling, Lemonade Stand, Golfing, Wedding Registry, are just a few ideas.

COCI Movie Night Fundraiser
April 14 - May 31, 2020

OK, you're self-isolating and seen everything on Netflix twice. So how would you like to see a good-news movie and make a real difference? 

In 2005 (after a story appeared on CNN), LMN aired a movie called “Fighting the Odds: The Marilyn Gambrell Story,” about the creation of Cherish Our Children Inc's No More Victims program.  The movie shows the real-life story of how our program originated and transforms the lives of children of incarcerated parents right here in Houston.  The movie received a five-star rating on Amazon and now you can see it! 

Right now, our kids cannot meet in school and are, in many ways, more isolated and vulnerable than ever.  Our program is working every day and finding new ways to insure that each of our kids has the support and guidance they need at this critical time.  As with every nonprofit, though, COCI was blindsided by COVID-19 and its fallout. We are holding this fundraiser so that we may continue to serve our amazing kids.  It is not every day that you have an opportunity to see a feel-good movie AND be part of a great cause!

To watch Fighting The Odds, simply make a donation by clicking the red SPONSOR ME button below. You will receive a confirmation email with a link to the movie. Then just pop some popcorn, prepare your favorite beverage, and enjoy a movie night, courtesy of Cherish Our Children Inc.


1. Click the SPONSOR ME button below and make a donation.  $100 would be wonderful, but any amount will support our critical mission. You will receive a confirmation email with the link to the movie.

2. SHARE the link for this page on your social media and give your network an opportunity to see a great movie and make a difference.

3. Become a fundraiser yourself by creating your own page and sharing it with your friends and family.  To join our Team simply click the JOIN TEAM button (on the left) and follow the prompts.

Your next action will impact the future of kids for generations to come, THANK YOU, Rob

Anonymous Donor $5,000.00 4/11/2020 Amazing program. Amazing impact. The Movie will impact everyone who sees it and, even after several viewings, still hits my heart (and tear ducts) every time! Thanks for the work that COCI is doing and the difference that it makes.
