Make Spirits Brighter for Vanderbilt Healthcare Workers and Patients This Holiday Season

During this season of gratitude, there are many ways your company can support Vanderbilt Health workers who have been providing compassionate care throughout the pandemic—and make the season brighter for children and families served by Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Here are some opportunities to show appreciation to heroic healthcare providers as well as to benefit patients now and in the future:

Jingle Challenge 

From Thanksgiving through Christmas, Nashville businesses can take the #JingleChallenge and rally together to fundraise for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Here are three ways to get involved:

  1. Start a Fundraiser. Create an online fundraising page to collect donations from your employees and clients. Make it a fun competition or a meaningful give-back opportunity. Here's how.
  2. Make a Donation. Make a donation in honor of your clients, customers or employees. All donations benefit our patients and families, some of whom will have to spend their holidays in the  hospital. Donate here.
  3. Fundraising in Stores. If you’re interested in fundraising through your retail or restaurant location, contact for tools and resources to make the campaign successful.

Gifts From Friends

The Gifts From Friends project spotlights the artistic talents of Children's Hospital's patients and their siblings. Their works of art are featured on various cards and gifts, with proceeds benefiting Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Learn more about the project here.

Virtual Toy Drive

To comply with health safety guidelines for patients and families, this year the Children's Hospital is asking that supporters make a gift online instead of donating physical items. All online donations will go directly to providing holiday gifts for patients. The hospital's Patient and Family-Centered Care Team will ensure each child has a special holiday surprise. More details are available here.

Vanderbilt Health Heroes

Vanderbilt Health also offers an opportunity to donate on behalf of the healthcare workers who have gone above and beyond in the face of COVID-19. Here's how you can contribute.
