Make A Difference!

Coles Foundation is starting a new initiative...

Welcome!  We’re glad you stopped by to learn more about Say a Prayer, Send a Smile, Make a Difference.  Since Cole’s Foundation began in 2008 our goal has been to support families who are facing pediatric cancer and other devastating medical situations.  This new initiative aims to do just that while at the same time allowing our prayer team members to feel more involved.  After all, Cole’s Prayer Team is where it all started and in order for this new initiative to succeed, we need your help!  Thank you for your continued support and for your help as we all join together to Make A Difference!

~ Aaron and Moireen Ruotsala, founders of Cole’s Foundation


Sign up so that you will receive information about the new initiative. 

Each month we will send you a packet.  In the packet you will find a photograph of a featured child and information about the child such as special things they enjoy.  Also included will be a list of prayer requests, blank cards from our Kids Unite to Fight program so that you can Send-A-Smile and that you can share with your friends and family.

Say a Prayer

  • Upon receiving your packet, place the photo card on your refrigerator or another place where you will see it daily and be reminded to pray for the family. 
  • The prayer requests found in the packet will allow you to pray for specific needs relating to the child and the family’s situation.
  • Share the prayer cards with friends and co-workers so that they can join with you in praying! 
  • Ask your church or prayer group to pray also!

Send a Smile

 Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Send personalized greeting cards based upon the child’s interests.
  • Send a care package to the child and/or family.
  • Send gas or food cards to help ease the burden of lengthy hospital stays.
  • Include your children or church youth by having them write letters using the Kids Unite to Fight cards that are included in each packet.  You can request additional cards by visiting
  • Leave messages of encouragement for the family on their blog or prayer page.
  • Include your family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and church groups in supporting the featured child!

Perhaps there are prayer team members who can provide a unique blessing for the featured family.


The sky’s the limit!  You can do as much as you are able but remember,
no matter what you choose to do, you will be Making a Difference!
