Karing bags are care packages designed to help a family of a hospitalized child while they are away from home. They are packed with toiletries, snacks, reading materials, disposable cameras, notebooks, pens, stamps, pillows and more. They are worth about $70 each and are given to families at no charge. If you know of a family traveling because of their child’s healthcare crisis, simply e-mail us a request and provide us with the child’s name and the hospital in which they are staying.
Kari’s Heart Foundation would like to help families of hospitalized children with hotel expenses when a local Ronald McDonald house is full or not an option. Please make us aware of your specific need, and we will gladly try to accommodate your request.
Kari’s Heart Foundation would like to assist with transportation costs of a family member or family when they have a child who is hospitalized or at discharge. Please make us aware of your specific need, and we will gladly try to accommodate your request.
Kari’s Heart Foundation would be happy to address any specific request from a family. If you have or know of a need aside from those listed, please send us the request and we will do our best to accommodate your request. No need is considered too small or unreasonable.
