Abby’s Gift has been such a blessing to our family. During the most difficult time in our family Abby’s Gift came through and took one of hardest burdens we have ever had to deal with off our shoulders. Abby’s Gift paid for our baby girl’s funeral. And in doing so we were able to bury our daughter close to our home so that we could visit her anytime we wanted which for us is weekly. Every Weekend (Sunday) rain or shine we visit our baby girl. We cannot thank Abby’s Gift enough for this huge blessing they allowed us. We are forever grateful for this beautiful nonprofit organization. Thank you so much Abby’s Gift for everything you did for the Jacobs family. We will always support Abby’s Gift in any way we can!

Abby’s Gift is not only a great resource for help during the most difficult time in my family’s life, but an amazing out-pouring of love to my son who is sick, his sister who has endured a life change of her brother, and to myself and my wife. The compassion, kindness, empathy, and pure passion behind the gift has helped us try and focus on the journey we have been chosen to walk. Being away from home for almost 5 months has presented it’s own challenges not to mention the change in my son’s health, but through the donor who sacrificially gave to our family, they helped provide some necessities and clothing.
In short, Abby’s Gift is not only a nonprofit organization who has given of money but continues to give my family hope, strength, love, and a lasting memory of never feeling like we have to walk through this valley of life alone.

100% of the money donated to Abby’s Gift goes straight to families in need...families that are having to do the unimaginable and plan a funeral for their child. A parent should never have to go through burying their sweet baby, but at least they don’t have to worry about how to pay for a memorial to honor his/her life, thanks to Abby’s gift.

Abby's Gift is a wonderful organization. It's founders are of the highest integrity, ensuring every dollar donated goes right back into the families that serve. They run this organization with their whole hearts and I know without a doubt that they sincerely care about every single soul Abby's Gift is served by. Of the charitable organizations I have seen, I have the utmost confidence in this one to do the most with what they receive in donations, to serve the most, to do it humbly, and with a pure servant's heart for every family affected by the illness or death of a child.

For the past 6 years I have volunteered with Abby’s Gift and the work I have seen them do continues to amaze me. Clyde and Melinda have identified an underserved need and continue to pour out their hearts to these beautiful children and their families and by doing so make an enormous impact in the world around them. We could all be so blessed to know all the love that their hearts hold and I will keep helping them in any way I can as long as I can.

I met Abby and her family at Methodist Willowbrook Hospital on 9-23-10 when beautiful Abby was born. This family brings so much joy and caring in whoever they touch. I will always be grateful for their friendship and love. They do amazing work.

I am a donor and a friend of this charity. There is one simple reason. I have watched this family, led by Melinda and Clyde Gordon work tirelessly for families that find themselves in the worst possible scenario, an extremely ill child or even more tragic the death of a child. They started their mission with a loss of their own. Instead of giving up on life, they have taken their love and dedication to help so many in need. If you don't know about them please go to the website abbysgift.com and learn this incredible story.

Abby’s Gift really came through for close family friends during and after the loss of their son. I can’t imagine the continued courage it takes to engage with people during such a tragic time. Truly a blessed and worthy organization.

Abby’s Gift is a non profit that fills in the gaps of hurting people. Abby’s gift ministers to families in dire need while walking through life’s most difficult moments with sick and/or dying children. How do they do it with such dignity, you may ask....because the founders have actually walked the walk. Check them out and see how to get involved by changing a family’s life one child at a time.

This is hands down the best non-profit organization I have ever volunteered for. Everyone feels like family who helps and who also attends the event. I 100% recommend coming to one of Abby's Gift events and to also donate because every penny will be used for a good cause!!

I know the founders (Melinda and Clyde Gordon) from church. I was thrilled when the became pregnant with baby Abby and cried along with them as they learned that Abby would die soon after her birth. They dealt with the hope of Abby’s birth along with the tragedy of Abby’s death with amazing grace and love. Soon after they formed Abby’s Gift of Hope Foundation and I have been a proud supporter since the beginning. Since I have experienced several miscarriages, I am acutely aware of the grief (and stigma) many women go through. I cannot even imagine the pain of carrying a baby to term only to have to bury that precious baby a few hours or days later. Melinda Gordon understands that pain and their non-profit is dedicated to helping families through this process. They deliver blankets to babies/families in hospitals, help out with funeral expenses and minister to the families throughout the ordeal.

I am so proud of the Gordon family and I am privileged to support this wonderful non-profit.

Abby's Gift Foundation fills in the gaps between prenatal care, hospital care, home care and end-of-life care that is provided by the healthcare community. With the best they have to offer and with the best intentions, doctors will send parents home with equipment, tools and expectations non-specific to dying children and at best, poorly adapted from elderly hospice care. Melinda and Clyde remain the heart and soul of the foundation in honor of their baby girl whom medicine could not save. They now help to provide the things that medicine doesn't offer, like emotional support, sibling support, gas money, funeral planning, advocacy, baby blankets and more!
