What is the goal of Butterfly Kisses Care Baskets? Our goal and our main focus is these children and their happiness. When a child is diagnosed with a terminal illness, their once simple life of hide-and-seek and hopscotch is transformed and shattered. Instead of worrying about their next playdate, they must worry about being poked and prodded and scanned time and time again. For this reason, our goal is simply to make these brave children smile.
What does Butterfly Kisses do for these children? Butterfly Kisses uses a personalized, and intimate approach towards the children in creating beautiful photo collages of the children. Using photos of the child throughout their life and of course, their family, Butterfly Kisses creates a cherished memory for the family. In many instances, these families are fighting for time against the disease. They want to cherish special moments forever, and our collage will allow these moments to live on forever. In addition, we send each child and their siblings a personalized, small care box filled with small goodies for them to enjoy! And for local children, we provide special care baskets with toys, gifts, and opportunities for memory-making family experiences.
