MLH Bravery Bags

A Bravery Bag is full of items to support families with a child in the hospital after heart surgery or other heart procedures. When a child needs a heart surgery or procedure, the whole family has to be very brave—the child himself/herself, the parents or caregivers, and any siblings. The Bravery Bag contains items that help the family have courage and strength through this time of crisis to know they are not alone.

You can support the Bravery Bag program in a number of ways.

• With a $20 donation, we can send a bag full of items families need to the hospital, including comfort items, toiletry items, a Courageous Heart Token and even an adorable stuffed lion with a patchwork heart. You can donate here!

• If you are in interested in holding a Bravery Bag drive, you can find out more at Bravery Bag Fundraisers.

• If you are interested in participating in our Bravery Chest program, you can find out more at Bravery Bag Fundraisers Bravery Chest

Families who receive Bravery Bags have let us know how much it means to them to get the bag during such a difficult time in their lives.
