Ray Mohler Jr. from the Little Saint Nick Foundation was honored on December 29th 2017 to be invited to ring the closing bell for 2017 at Nasdaq MarketSite. But even after being invited, he had no idea how grandiose the occasion was actually going to turn out to be. The historic event was commemorated by a huge public display on Times Square that covered a six story building. Not only was the event broadcast live across multiple stations, but it was also recorded in history with Ray’s signature.
We at LSN are very honored and humbled to be invited to such a historic event. We take this as a sign of bigger things on the horizon for our Foundation in the coming years. Nobody, especially us, ever though that our organization would continue to grow like this. And now, in 2018, with our new Chapters springing up around the country, we are confident that we will only see more and more and more kids affected by this movement for change.
Thank you to all of our members and supporters and here’s to an amazing 2018.

About Little Saint Nick Foundation
The Little Saint Nick Foundation was founded in 2004 by Raymond Mohler Jr. at age six. Ray was in the hospital and felt fortunate that he was able to leave after eight hours. He decided he wanted to give back to the kids in the hospital who couldn’t leave. That was the start of the Little Saint Nick Foundation. This organization helps kids in hospitals deal with their fear and anxiety, while also granting wishes to kids in the community. They do this by their emergency department gift bag program, toy drives, hospital parties, granting wishes, and having local chapters run by kids, for kids with the goal of “Kids Inspiring and Helping Kids”. They currently have a chapter here in New York and are starting to expand across the whole country through a youth movement never seen before.
