We’re so glad that you’ve found our website! We have events and programs that go on all throughout the year, and we’d love to have you get involved with us! Listed below are highlights of what we do, and we encourage you to poke around the website for more information:
Buddy Break: This FREE kids/respite program provides fun for VIP kids and their siblings while their caregivers get a break from their ongoing care-giving responsibilities. This program is held monthly in collaboration with churches across the nation.
Make ‘m Smile: This annual community festival is held in Orlando, FL. It is an event dedicated to celebrating VIP kids and their families. It features a Friendship Stroll, free entertainment, food, family activities, and exhibitors that provide resources for the special needs community.
Caroling for Kids: We share hope and encouragement with patients, families, and caregivers at children’s hospitals and with homebound VIP families on Christmas day through caroling, prayer, and bearing goodies and gifts.
VIP Birthday Club: VIP kids become national club members and are celebrated with a card on their birthday, plus other special recognition throughout the year. Kids can also have their picture and a story online.
Keep ‘m Smiling: This is our partnership with other organizations to have community events that are VIP-friendly year-round.
Hall of Hope: We remember VIP kids who have relocated to their heavenly home. Cards are sent to families on their child’s birth date and homegoing date. Join us online in remembering the imprint they have made on our hearts and lives.
Bearing Hope: A loveable, plush beanie bear is given to VIP kids to communicate the hope that we share through Nathaniel’s Hope.
Resources: We have some resources listed to help you become better equipped as a caregiver for your VIP child.
