Giving LOVE
one kit at a time

kits donated to date in 2023... 2,985

What began as a family project to help our 4 year old cousin and her journey against Acute Myeloid Leukemia, quickly sparked a desire to provide an opportunity to help other families in similar situations.

We want to invite you to experience the joy & love we felt in helping our cousin and her family by providing you with an opportunity to make a difference.

We are dedicated to creating and donating craft & activity kits to hospitalized children facing serious and/or life-threatening illnesses through youth and community engagement.

     Shriner’s Hospitals for Children, Spokane

“Your activity kits are a big hit! Because our patient census is pretty low {due to COVID-19 restrictions} we have also needed to reduce staffing to reflect that.

 The kits are very nice to give out for the times we aren’t able to be present. Thank you so much for continuing to think about our patients during this time.” 

~ Caedmon's mom
      family kit recipient

Caedmon was given an activity pack after his tube change at the hospital today, He was so excited about the craft & other goodies. He and Finley both made pinwheels tonight. I'm so grateful for people who try to help make yucky experiences a little better.

I had SO MUCH fun writing words of encouragement to the strong ones fighting cancer and other battles. Thank you for the Opportunity!

~ Tony, Family Resource Coordinator, Sacred Heart Medical Center

“We appreciate your due diligence and all the safety and caution you take preparing the kits. (They) are probably cleaner than anything you can buy at a store. We thank you for that.” 

~Jamie T, RMHC Spokane staff

“We’ve been adding your kits to the Family Welcome bags (here at RMHC Spokane) and it’s been one of their favorite things. Everyone loves them! Thank you”
