The New York City non-profit Butterflies by Blaq Inc., which provides free hair replacements and solutions for children experiencing hair loss due to medical conditions, held a gift bag giveaway for the kids at NY-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital Monday, Dec. 18.
These carefully curated gift bags were meant to brighten the spirits of the inpatient and outpatient children, while also spreading holiday cheer to them. Each bag contained New York Jets and Giants hats, fur-lined beanie hat and glove sets, satin-lined sleep caps and beanies, masks and hand sanitizer, Nature’s Bees lip balm Curel and lotion, tie-dyed bandanas and Christmas socks.
Butterflies by Blaq Inc. was able to make this giveaway possible thanks in large part to community and volunteer support.
Butterflies By Blaq Inc. invites the community to further support them through Zelle donations at [email protected]. Each contribution helps towards making a positive impact on the lives of children facing medical hair loss, whether due to cancer treatment therapies, Alopecia or any other medical conditions.
“We appreciate you! Your support has illuminated the lives of these brave children and we are grateful for the opportunity to spread joy together,” Butterflies By Blaq Inc. Founder Erna Blackman said.
