Family receiving a Heart Tote

"The Heart Tote meant a lot to me because it meant one less trip to the grocery store. It had beauty supplies so I could feel and look “human” but most importantly the gift made me feel supported.

In the special needs world we are often advocating and feel alone and unsupported. This gesture made us feel like we mattered and were thought of in a positive way!"
