Holland Bloorview’s Gifts that Grow

You can give a gift that opens a world of possibilities for kids with disabilities. By choosing to give a gift that grows, you’re helping kids realize their unlimited potential.

Let us celebrate with you! Whether it’s for a holiday, birthday, anniversary or any other occasion, every gift comes with an opportunity to send a personalized message on one of many different cards designed by the kids at Holland Bloorview.

Santa's Snacks


Every kid leaves carrots out for Rudolph, and cookies and milk out for Santa. And that’s no different when you’re in the hospital. Your gift of snacks for Santa and his reindeer will fulfill the magic of the holidays for the inpatients at Holland Bloorview. 


Therapeutic Clowns caroling


Deck the halls with red noses! With your gift, Dr. Flap, Nurse Flutter, and the famous blue ukulele will spread lightness and joy as they jingle all the way throughout the hallways of the hospital. 



Santa's Welcoming Committee


You can help us get ready for Santa’s arrival. Your gift will clear the snow and light the roof for Santa’s reindeer to land his sleigh safely. And you’ll make sure our in-house elves give Santa a warm welcome and guide him to each and every hospital room, so no child misses out.

Art Supplies


Through your gift of art supplies, you're giving kids the chance to explore their creative sides. Whether painting, sculpting or drawing, art is a welcome distraction from appointments, treatments and therapy.

Toys for Our Playroom


From a ball pit to video games, your gift of toys for our in-patient playroom, gives kids staying at the hospital a chance to play, laugh and to let their imaginations soar.

Pool Time


Your gift helps support our Aquatic Therapy program, which helps kids improve their strength, balance, range of motion and overall fitness.

Gardening Supplies


Connecting with nature isn’t the first thing you think of at a hospital. But by purchasing gardening supplies, you’re giving kids access to the tranquil environment of our beautiful Spiral Garden.

Sports Equipment


Through your gift of recreation and sports equipment, you are helping kids get active, as they play, participate, and make friends in a welcoming and friendly environment.

Musical Instruments


With your gift of musical instruments, kids can express themselves, be artistic and creative, and rock out with music therapists and professional artists.

Respite Camp


Weekend camps can be made possible by you, which allow kids to play, laugh and make new friends while giving parents down time without having to worry about their child's care.

Giving Youth Independence


Your gift can provide teens with the chance to live away from home for three weeks in a safe and supportive environment where they can learn important life skills such as cooking and navigating public transit.

Support for a Family


Your gift will provide financial aid for families with kids with disabilities, including funds for special equipment, transportation and medications.

Gifts made through Holland Bloorview’s Gifts that Grow are donations to Holland Bloorview Foundation. The items listed represent our many programs and services. We will use your gift where it will have the most impact, by helping to fund the hospital’s most urgent needs.
