Blankets and Care Packages

When donor families are told the devastating news that their loved one has suffered brain death and they decide to donate their organs, they start the waiting period. This can be as long as three days while arrangements are made for suitable recipients. So, in conjunction with London Health Sciences Centre, we decided to initiate a blanket and care package for those families going through this traumatic time.  We wanted to show them that others who understand are thinking about them.  In time, and with your help, we hope to expand this to other hospitals in the area.

The micro-fleece blanket is personalized with the words “Josh Field Support Network,” so that it can wrap grieving families in a hug.  The care package contains food vouchers for the hospital restaurant, a wash kit, and now the chance to do fingerprint jewellery impressions.

It was our own experience of waiting for Josh’s recipients that inspired us to help other families in the same situation.

.  Please be aware that this is a gift. It is not tax deductible and no tax receipt will be issued. If you use the donate button you will receive a receipt from PayPal.
