From a simple toy drive to larger toy collections, drop-offs and events for pediatric oncology treatment centers and hospitals. WithLove Charity has curated programs designed specifically to bring joy to local children fighting cancer and their families. Our current programs are listed below.
Heart of the Holidays
The “Heart of the Holidays” program focuses on celebrating patients and their families at their treatment facilities. These parties are designed to bring the pediatric cancer community together in an environment allotting mental and spiritual support, as well as joy, through new toys for the children. Along with the celebrations, we donate new toys, games, and other requested items to update the toy inventory for the benefiting facility. Since 2012 we have donated close to 12,000 items, and have hosted over 30 Holiday events.Your financial support allows us to not only fulfill requested donation lists from each facility to keep their play room up to date but gives us the opportunity to hand deliver new toys and games to the attending children.
“Sideline Smiles” arranges attendance for football games, other sporting events and/or shows happening in the community for children affected by pediatric cancer and their families. Since 2012, we have provided memorable moments for over 150 families through this program. "Sideline Smiles" allows families to experience the fun of game day or watch a live show together and leave behind the stress of treatment for at least a few hours. Whether you or your business donates concert tickets for one of our families or fully sponsors an event, know that you're providing memories that not only make a difference but will be cherished forever.
Toys with Tay
Our “Toys with Tay” program engages families on a more personal level. Whether a family is connected to WithLove Charity via Child Life representatives from treatment facilities or from direct interaction with our founder, playdates and/or care packages are arranged. The playdates are conducted at the child’s hospital room or clinic visit where Taylor personally delivers them toys and hangs out with the family. Care packages are sent to children outside of Jacksonville and Nashville, unless Tay is visiting their city. The purpose of this program is to give hope as our founder, a two-time childhood cancer survivor, shares her story and connects to the affected family. When you donate to this program, you are personally impacting the heart beat of our mission: Tay. Your donation keeps our founder encouraged, provides the tools needed to provide a joyful experience for the child and allows for deeper connection between her and the family.
