1,040 care packages were donated to Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tennessee. This donation was part of our GiveAFriend Holiday initiative. From Thanksgiving through Giving Tuesday, SendAFriend shut down the store for normal sales and focused solely on giving. During that time, our GiveAFriend program remained open and we asked that our fluffy friends be purchased for donation during the most thankful time of year. These stuffed animal care packages brought a little extra love and holiday cheer to those that need it most.
With more than 500 physicians trained in 30 pediatric and surgical specialties, Monroe Carell is equipped to handle any issue a child may face—from the simple to the complex. The hospital offers comprehensive services for everything from cancer, transplant, trauma, and sickle cell disease, to developmental disorders, ENT, general surgery and others.
