Leave a $1, $5, $10, $20 or donate an etire Brave Gown. It all makes a difference! If 7,000 people left $1, oh the difference we could make together!
Here are two messages we received just yesterday:
"I love to see the love and bravery spread to these super hero’s who fight big battles!! My son is 9 years old his diagnosis is CO, and hydrocephalus he has 1 kidney, a VP shunt and g tube. He has had many surgeries wearing boring ugly “gown." My son and I love that brave gowns bring courage. I was wondering if you have a sponsorship program?? He is having double hip surgery in January and would love to wear a brave gown. It would be most helpful because he won’t be able to wear pants for a few months. Thanks for being awesome! Pleas let me know how we can be sponsored?"
"I’m fundraising for my to get my daughter a Brave Gowns. She is now 4 months,I’m hoping to get her lifesaving treatment in Dana Farber Boston, for her spinal rhabdiod tumour, is there any way you could help at all?"
In 2015, Summer founded Happy Ditto, INC to have a larger impact to help the children and their families. Happy Ditto, Inc is a 501(c)3 founded in California. Happy Ditto is extremely passionate about donating Brave Gowns to children to provide them with a sense of normalcy while being in the hospital, sometimes months on end. Children have minimal control in their daily lives and especially when going through treatment for an illness. Becoming a superhero or their favorite character allows them to access a sense of power during this scary time. We believe there is nothing more magical than the innocence of a child.
When you donate, you're helping put a Brave Gown directly on a child! If you would like the Brave Gowns that you're sponsoring to go to a specific hospital, please email email@example.com THANK YOU!
*Brave Gowns are currently being used in 380 hospitals and in seven countries. We have put over 350,000 children in gowns. With 3.4 million children being hospitalized in the US alone, we have a lot of work to do. We are by the families side to lend an ear or answer a question. We provide any service we can to make their treatment easier. Brave Gowns, created in memory of Summer's 10 year-old brother.
