Liver Mommas & Families is a 501c3 organization and public charity. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.
All donations are final.
What do my donations do?
100% of your donation goes toward helping children who have been diagnosed with pediatric liver disease, other children with serious or life-threatening conditions, and their families. Most of these children have terminal liver disease or have received liver transplants. Some of them are admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Units for other potentially life-threatening health issues, and Oncology Units.
No one in our organization is paid. Every director, board member, and team member work on a volunteer basis. Many of the administrative costs are covered by the founder so that your donation can go directly to where it’s needed the most.
Each $40 sustaining donation covers a care package for a family in need for the year 2020, thanks to generous contributions from our donors. A $50 donation helps support our organization. Inside, the recipients will find a tote-bag they can keep packed and ready for a hospital stay, a travel toiletry kit, a 32oz Nalgene water bottle, a Liver Mommas & Families teddy bear, a $25 Amazon gift certificate, and helpful resources to help them navigate their child's diagnoses and transplant journey.
Make a donation to send a care package where it's needed most or identify a family you'd like us to send one to.
The Jinglebell Drive:
The Jinglebell Drive is our annual event to bring gifts, and support to pediatric transplant hospitals where it's needed the most. For some that might mean the comfort of a traditional holiday dinner. For others it may mean gifts for patients and their families.
We work hand in hand with doctors, patient relations, and Child Life departments to make sure your donation has the greatest impact, from buying much needed items for the pediatric ICU and transplant floors, to donating to patient relief funds.
We're currently looking into how we can provide scholarships for liver-kids and their parents pursuing a career in health and sciences!
