Hope for the Holidays

 

 

 

 

You can bring hope to critically ill children and their families at Duke, WakeMed, and UNC Children’s Hospitals this season and all year long by being a part of Me Fine Foundation’s annual Hope For The Holidays program! There are two ways you can help: adopt a family as a Dream Team or host an Angel Tree. Learn about both opportunities in greater detail below.

 

Adopt a Family

Just as Me Fine provides a financial safety net for families in crisis throughout the year, our Hope for the Holidays program serves families who are in the midst of a new diagnosis, relapse, or unexpected hospitalization during the holiday season. The Me Fine Dream Team adopts families who would not otherwise have gifts due to a child’s treatment for critical illness. 

We call our holiday supporters the “Dream Team” because of their willingness to be on call for a family experiencing a sudden medical crisis. 

We are no longer accepting Dream Teams for 2018. Thanks to all who signed-up to help!

 

Grab a Tag from an Angel Tree

Angel Tree Partners display a collection of hanging tags throughout the holiday season. Each tag corresponds to a child or parent’s request. These requests range from dolls and cars to art supplies, baby toys, and board games, even gas cards to help offset the costs of travel to and from the hospital. Coworkers and customers alike may choose one or more tags to shop for, and return the unwrapped gift to that location by Monday, December 10. 

At this time, we are no longer accepting application for Angel Tree sites.

Angel Trees will be on display at local businesses across the Triangle and surrounding areas from Nov 1 – Dec 10.
