Every gift you send with The Gift Goose helps to fund a free gift for a young person arriving at a transitional living facility (homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, group homes, children’s hospitals, etc.).
Upon arrival at a facility, the young person is given one of our gift boxes to provide some fun activities, reduce anxiety and occupy their time.
Our gift boxes contain a variety of fun and educational items including: activity books, school supplies, action figures, puzzles, a set of earbuds, a few treats and access to resources about overcoming adversity.
Our goal is to give each young person a reason to smile, a respite from the adversity they face and ongoing long-term encouragement.
For many of these young people, our gift box is the only gift they will receive for many years and the gift is typically delivered at an important time in their lives.
When you use The Gift Goose to deliver your gifts, you are directly responsible for lifting the spirits of a young person who needs a reason to smile.
