Birds for Kids with Terminal Illness

In 2023, you can brighten the lives of the children under our care with terminal illness by providing each of them with two brand new robotic birds – one for them and one for their sibling(s). Plus, we would like to send you either a blue or red bird to use as a decoration in your home. 

These birds chirp and sing six different songs in response to sight, sound, and touch. They are completely adorable! 

How you can help with a tax deductible gift:*

  • $75 provides a bird for a terminally ill child

About the Blue Bird: 
The blue bird has special significance. Several years ago, a blue bird visited one of our children on her bedroom windowsill every day for two weeks until the day she died. The bird never returned after the little girl passed away. 

Three Quick Facts:

  • We are the largest Children’s Hospice Care Provider on the East Coast
  • We are one of only five hospice groups nationwide (out of 4,700) with a dedicated pediatric care team
  • Hundreds of children annually are cared for through our hospice and bereavement programs 

Please note: Capital Caring Health will provide you with a Gift Acknowledgement letter by mail for your records. Your letter will include the tax deductible portion of your gift (this is your total donation minus the cost of goods received if opting to receive a bird, $52).
