Lend A Hand | Holiday Campaign

Holiday gifts such as toys, clothing and special needs items can cause extra strain on family budgets this time of year. During the months of November and December, the Lend A Hand: Adopt A Biliary Atresia Family Program will provide gifts to Biliary Atresia families around the United States.  Through our program, gift givers may select a family in need to "adopt" during the most magical time of the year.

How The Program Works

  • Once families are selected to be a part of the Lend A Hand Adoption Program (applications accepted between now and Nov. 21, 2022, see below for application requirements), BARE will work with the family to determine appropriate gifts for their family based on ages, interests and needs of the family members.


  • To give, anyone can select a family that best matches how they want to give (i.e., a family may list a toy for a four year old, a gift for a teenager and a grocery store gift card for the family).

  • The gift giver completes the simple form to adopt the family (see below instructions for gift givers) and donates the appropriate amount to BARE. The giver may include messages to the family that will be presented along with their gifts.

  • Once a family reaches donations of $250, that family is removed from the list and BARE purchases and ships the gifts to the family.

  • Your gift amount is a tax deductible donation to BARE.
