Eva’s Gift 501 (C)3 non-profit organization’s mission is to help families with special needs children in Northeastern Florida.
Eva’s Gift helps by making donations of gas cards, tactile quilts, books and gift baskets to families with special needs children. We make a yearly donation of 24 gift baskets to Wolfson’s Children’s Hospital in Jacksonville Florida to children hospitalized during the holiday season. Throughout the year Eva’s Gift gives children with special sensory needs, tactile blankets. We also help special needs children get to their many medical appointments by donating gas cards to families in need.
Our family began Eva’s Gift in 2011 because we understand how difficult it can be to raise a child with special needs. Many children with special needs require special and specific care to keep them healthy and to reach their individual independence.
Our daughter Eva was born with a genetic condition called Trisomy 13. This is a genetic condition where there is an extra chromosome present. Trisomy is a very rare and involved condition. Eva has already in her short life exceeded the expectations for her condition and has taught our family so much about what is really important in life. We value each moment we have together whether they be small or big moments. We celebrate ALL accomplishments… there is not a small accomplishment… they are all BIG and MEMORABLE! We are very proud of our daughter Eva and our older children as well. Eva’s older siblings have an amazing compassion for others that they may not have otherwise had if we had not been blessed with Eva.
We also strive to bring awareness for Trisomy. There are many families who receive this diagnosis and are given very little hope. We would like to share that there is hope. Our Eva is 5 years old and is the happiest little girl I know! She has an amazing strength and joy that is contagious.
Thank you for taking some time to learn about our family and Eva’s Gift non-profit. We also thank you for your continued support of our mission to help families with special needs children.
