Why gift cards? Gift cards can be used by the patient and siblings for fun, entertainment or comfort items. The cost of hospitals, doctor appt, treatments and everything else is extremely high, living little left over for fun things. Sending a gift card is sending some joy of the season!

Brayden’s Buds

I am Luke Jenkins. My younger brother, Brayden, has multiple disabilities and complex medical needs. Our family has spent countless hours in the hospital.

Over the years, my family has been the recipient of help. We have tried over the years to give back to the hospital community by running toy drives, letter writing and even hosting a Christmas party for families at the hospital.

Most of my brother’s care has been at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC. I have seen many families struggle with hospital stays.

A couple of years ago, I wanted to find my own way to help patients and their siblings in the hospital. I submitted for a school project, Be the Change, and created Brayden’s Buds. Now I am working to create a non-profit for Brayden’s Buds.
