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 the Holiday Project. These works of art are featured on various cards and gifts, with proceeds benefiting Monroe Carell.

2023 marks a big milestone for Gifts from Friends – 50 years of incorporating art from children to support fundraising at Monroe Carell. As a special nod to the anniversary, select cards from the past have been added to this year’s holiday card collection.

Visit the links below to see this year’s Gifts from Friends offerings and enjoy shopping, because a healthy child is the best gift of all.
