Last Chance to Give: #GiveHope with Andrew Luck before the New Year

Thursday, December 31 is the last day to make your Gift of Hope to Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health through The Gift of Hope Happens Here year-end giving campaign. This year, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is serving as the Giving Ambassador for the campaign—and asks you to join him in making a year-end gift to Riley.

Your gifts help Riley kids like Sawyer Kelly. She was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome—which essentially means she had half of a heart. The medical team at Riley Hospital saved her life many times through multiple open-heart surgeries, ventilators, ECMO life support, and, ultimately, a successful heart transplant when she was just 9 months old. Today, Sawyer and her “hero heart” are doing great. As Sawyer’s mother Samantha says, “We are so grateful to everyone who considers spreading a little hope, joy and love to Riley families.”

Please make a gift of hope before midnight on December 31 to help Riley Hospital give children like Sawyer bright futures.
By making a final, tax-deductible gift for 2015, you are making a direct impact on Riley Hospital’s world-class family-centered care, its cutting-edge pediatric research and the new Riley Maternity and Newborn Health program.

The Gift of Hope Happens Here campaign, supported statewide by Fifth Third Bank and Indiana Blood Center, raises funds and provides hope to thousands of families seeking help for seriously ill and injured children – care that only Riley Hospital can provide.
