Gifts from Friends


Since 1973, Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt patients and their siblings have lent their artistic talents to the Gifts from Friends project, previously known as Holiday Project. These works of art become featured on various cards and gifts, with proceeds benefiting Monroe Carell.

Partnerships with The Christie Cookie Co. and Joyner & Hogan Printers provide a range of products for purchase. Thank-you cards and a variety card packets are available year-round. From October to December, holiday card options are available with customization options for your company or family messages.
