While our Toys and Books program donates items to pediatric cancer hospitals around the world, this program is focused towards dream gifts for individual cancer patients. Similar to toys and books, our care packages supply families with items they need / want but may not be able to afford, or just goodies to spark some joy and provide comfort within their lives.
About This Program
Our Care Packages Program gifts patients a dream gift of their choice to celebrate a milestone or just spark some much-needed joy. Usually, gifts are sent through Amazon,
Alternatively, we hold packaging events for volunteers to create a box of items requested by the patient's guardian or generalized comfort goodies. In the past, we have partnered with the nonprofit organization HopeWorks to hold packaging events.
Though most patients a part of this program live within the US, we have also helped international pediatric cancer patients. If you live outside the US but still would like a care package, feel free to submit a request.

We hope to hold packaging events every 2 months in the DMV or Boston to gather volunteers in-person and prepare care packages for kids with cancer. Contact us if you'd like to help!
