Little Hands Support Programs and Initiatives

We offer several different programs as a way to provide responsive and personalized support to our Heroes and their families.

BackPack Program 
** Sponsored by Windsor Micro Medical Supplies ($1850.00)

When a new Hero is nominated to LIttle Hands, they are sent a backpack, containing their Hero and family tees, comfort items, toys, gift cards, homemade cards and more. We call these  'Welcome Packs'. We also send 'Smile Packs' to Heroes who are being admitted for surgeries or treatments, which contain similar items as our Welcome Packs. They are meant to let our Heroes know that they are not alone and hopefully help to produce smiles and comfort during their stay.

Gift Card and Hospital Admission Program
To assist our Hero families, we offer gift cards to help with travel and food costs for medical appointments and admissions.
We also assist with costs associated with Ronald McDonald House or hotel costs, as well as travel costs, associated with VIA or other means. 

Meal Programs
To assist families who are struggling with a recent diagnosis, discharge, or illness, we organize meal programs for Heroes. We will provide essential groceries, along with prepared meals or an organized "meal train" to alleviate some stress and allow the family to focus on the important task of caring for their child, rather than worrying about meals.

Toy Drive and North Pole Programs
We organize a massive toy drive each year to collect and donate toys to local hospitals and RMH, along with several organizations that provide therapies and services to our Heroes and others. We also set up a North Pole experience for our families, to allow them to come and choose gifts for their children. We hope that these gifts help to provide a bit of a boost over the holidays for our families as we know how stressful this time of year can be. 

UnZip/UnSnap Your SuperPower Tees and Pjs Program
With the help of our Hero Mighty Megan, and her incredible family, we have designed t-shirts and pajamas that have been altered to accomodate ports, PICC lines, IVs, gtubes and dialysis tubes. These t-shirts and pjs are donated to local paediatric units and organizations that assist our Heroes and others and are also being provided to adult cancer clinics and dialysis units as we believe that the more support we can generate, the better. Every person who can benefit from this program, should.

Bereavement Costs Program
If a child passes away, we can assist with the costs associated with bereavement. Should a family need assistance, we will contact the funeral home directly and provide payment, up to $1000. 

Believe You Can Hero Calendar Program
Each year we create a calendar featuring our Heroes. This is one of our favourite initiatives and allows our Heroes to truly showcase their greatest dreams and hopes for their futures. A huge thank you to Blue Rose Designs Inc. for the amazing photography and for helping us create our vision for this calendar. 

Emergency Fund
Should a family find themselves in financial emergency, we can provide gift cards and fresh food to their doorstep to ensure that our Heroes do not go without. As well, if a medication, therapy or medical equipment is not covered by private insurance or OHIP, we will provide up to $1000 donation direclty to the hospital etc. to help cover the costs.
