The best gift — spreading joy!

Because of your generous support, we’re able to provide comprehensive programs and services, lifesaving equipment and transformational research for our youngest patients. You can help us bring even more smiles this holiday season by giving hope and spreading joy:

  1. Give Hope — Celebrate this holiday season of generosity — make a gift to UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital.
  2. Spread Joy — Include a message of hope or words of encouragement that will be shared with the more than 700 patients and 1,300 staff members expected to spend the holidays at UF Health, instead of at home.
  3. Share Happiness — Share your note on social media using #GiveHopeUFHealth. Make sure your post is public so we can see it!

Your faithful support of UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has enabled us to save countless children’s lives … perhaps even the life a child you know and love. Thank you for everything you do for the kids.
