Donated towards $1650.00 Goal

Spread the LOVE this Spring!
Each year, 200 children in Connecticut are diagnosed with pediatric cancer. But you can help. You can help Circle of Care provide newly diagnosed families with a Bag of Love, a beautiful canvas tote filled with thoughtful items to help get children and their families started on their pediatric cancer journey.
We call them our Bags of Love because every item is lovingly selected with careful thought. Why? Because parking is expensive, so we include parking vouchers. Because families don’t have time to run home before going to the hospital, so we include the basic essentials like toiletries and water bottles. We know that it’s scary, so we provide comfort items like toys, and a cozy fleece blanket. And because there are long nights, we include a journal with a lighted pen for parents to take notes in the dark after their child has finally fallen asleep.
We need your help to:
- Spread the LOVE: $150 LOVE donation will fill a Bag of Love.
- Spread COMFORT: $75 COMFORT donation will provide a warm, fleece blanket, a toy for a child, toiletries, water bottle, a journal and lighted pen for worried parents
- Spread RELIEF: $50 RELIEF donation will provide parking and meal vouchers to help with the costs of that first week of hospitalization
- Spread HOPE: $25 HOPE donation will provide our resource directory, The Purple Pages — an invaluable guide for newly diagnosed families
In fact, any amount will help to fill a Bag of Love – and help to ease the transition by letting each child and family know that they are not alone.
Cost to purchase 11 Bags of Love for families of children with children: $1,650
