Mission Statement

We donate warm fleece ponchos to children who fight courageously for their health, while supporting their families.


It can be difficult for patients to stay warm while hooked up to IV and PICC lines. Robes, sweaters and jackets don’t work with the lines because there are sleeves. It can be uncomfortable, and painful, to get a sleeve over an IV. Meg Smith came up with a solution when her son, Gavin, was 6. She created fun fleece poncho capes for him to slip over his head. He was cozy in bed and no more cold walks down hospital corridors. Ponchos of this type don't seem to exist, and yet they are functional and necessary. Meg, along with her business partner Cindy, want to provide comfort to children in the hospital by providing ponchos to frequent fliers. - We are a pending 501(c)3 organization.
