Shipments to a Specific Hospital or Facility

It is easy to sponsor a donation for a nearby children’s hospital, infusion center, Ronald McDonald House or similar family-stay home.

Purchase a Poncho

All purchases support our mission. Ponchos are wonderful gifts for all ages.  If you are looking for a special gift for someone who is always cold, chronically ill, visiting infusion centers, or undergoing surgery, please contact us. We make custom ponchos upon request if you don’t see what you are looking for in the gift shop.

Hold Your Own Fundraiser

Gather your friends, book club members, neighbors, scout troop, service or social club to sponsor a shipment of ponchos. Or start a Facebook fundraiser to celebrate an occasion.

Shop at Amazon Smile

By designating Cape Ivy as an Amazon Smile charity, your purchases will provide a donation to Cape Ivy by the Amazon Smile Donation. All purchases must be made using the Amazon Smile webpage (www.smile.amazon.com) or Amazon Smile app. 

Our wish list contains office supplies and materials for sewing ponchos. These direct in-kind donations to Cape Ivy helps us reach more children.

Request a Poncho for Your Child

If your child is in the hospital or receiving regular infusions as an outpatient, please ask the Child Life team if ponchos are available. Contact us in other cases to help us determine how best to provide a poncho to your child.
