Support the Mended Little Hearts Bravery Bags!

Mended Little Hearts gives Bravery Bags to families in the hospital after their child has had heart surgery.  When a child needs a heart surgery or procedure, the whole family has to be very brave.  The Bravery Bag is a bag of helpful items for families with children in the hospital, but it is also so much more.  Bravery Bags represent hope and courage and let families know they are not alone.  Parents often keep the items in the Bravery Bag for many years, because the Bravery Bag creates an emotional connection that lasts long past a child’s hospital journey.

With each $20 donation, we can send a bag full of items families need to the hospital, including comfort items, toiletry items, a Courageous Heart Token, and even an adorable stuffed lion with a patchwork heart. 


Families who receive Bravery Bags have let us know how much it means to them to get the bag during such a difficult time in their lives.  Please donate here!

If you would like to host a Bravery Bag Drive fundraiser in Central Virginia, please contact mlhrichmond@gmail.com or call Kevin Mattia at 804-586-8863 to get more information.
