Every child deserves to feel comfort in their time of need.

​Your donation today means a gift for a child. Golden Gifts are so much more than simple keepsakes — they’re symbols of hope, comfort, and strength for children facing daunting experiences and instability as they live with a rare disease or disorder. Not only will your support help deliver gifts — you’ll also power our efforts to introduce opportunities for families to obtain easier access to service dogs, dogs that give children the confidence and independence they need on their journey, as well as bring more pediatric therapy dog programs to hospitals.
