I have made a list on Amazon HERE, where you can order an item on the list and pay online and simply have the items sent directly to me. I will make sure that they are delivered to the families at Primary Children’s Hospital. This is a very easy way to help out, as it doesn’t take a lot of time.
Once I receive a donated item, I will likely blog it here so others can see. If you prefer me to not blog your donated item(s) then please just let me know and I will respect your wishes :). Alternatively, if you are ok with me blogging the donation, but wish to remain anonymous, I can accommodate that easily as well.
Below you will find some of the ongoing items donated to Primary Children’s Hospital in Utah. Depending on how fast the donations come in, I try and go 1-2 times a year with about 15 gift boxes/bags for heart families staying there.
Please contact me to find out where to ship your donations.
**Please note that all items MUST be new. The risk of infection is great for some of these babies and it is just so important to send new items, preferably from a smoke-free, pet-free home.**

Heart Families in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit:
1. Key fob (essentially a key chain)
2. Heart Lovie or Heart Shaped Pillow
3. Garlands or Buntings (perfect for hospital rooms!)
-heart quilts, or any quilts or blankets made with love (aren’t they all?). Keep them lap size and smaller.
-heart bags or boxes to gift the items in
I am in the process of determining the direction to go to serve these sweet families. I feel that their pain is so immense that I am often at a loss as to what to do for them. While gifts are most definitely a kind gesture, of course anything material cannot erase the grief these families are feeling. For now, if you are the praying type, then please pray for them.
