Chicagoland CHD (Congenital Heart Defect) Brave Gowns Drive!
Please join the following Chicagoland heart families to fill Chicago hospitals (Advocate Heart Institute- Busking Family PCICU, Lurie Children’s Hospital Regenstein CCU, and Rush) with soft, bright-colored gowns in honor of Heart Month (February) and CHD Awareness Week (Feb. 7-14)!
CHDs are America’s most common birth defect, affecting nearly 40,000 babies each year in the U.S alone. This equates to 1 child every 15 minutes.
Being a child stuck in the hospital is tough. Having to wear an old, uncomfortable, lifeless hospital gown makes the experience even worse. Brave Gowns provide children with a sense of courage and normalcy during a scary time. A Brave Gown is a high-quality gown, that easily snaps on the side, and makes it easier to access every part of a patient's body while maintaining privacy. This allows the child to play or sleep with minimal disruption so they can rest and heal in peace and comfort while looking like a superhero, princess or their favorite animal! We'd love your help to provide every child, hospitalized in the Chicagoland area with a CHD Brave Gown during the month of February!
In the “notes about order” section, please indicate the following:
- Do you have a specific hospital you’d like your gifted gown to go to? (Advocate, Lurie, or Rush? Or included in a PCHA heart bag?)
- Please indicate which heart warrior family you are donating in honor of.
- Is there a specific size or design that you’d like sent on your behalf?
- Is there a specific kiddo that you’d like your gifted gown sent to? (inpatient or outpatient!)
WHEN ORDERING THIS PRODUCT, IT ACTS AS A GIFT CARD. A GOWN WILL NOT SHIP DIRECTLY TO YOU. IF YOU CHECKOUT VIA PAYPAL, IT WILL ASK FOR YOUR ADDRESS, BUT THEY WILL SHIP DIRECTLY TO A CHILD IN THE CHICAGOLAND AREA, NOT TO YOU PERSONALLY!
**Purchase this Gift-A-Gown and print the certificate attached!
Please take a picture of you & your certificate and email it to us or tag us in it**
We’d love to see pics of you and your Gift-A-Gown certificate:
