How can I make a donation to KOALA?
How do I nominate a child?
To nominate a child who is undergoing treatment for a long-term illness, please get permission from the parent first, and then e-mail us and let us know a little bit about the child. Ask the parent to get a nurse, doctor, or social worker to send a short letter on their letterhead verifying the child's frequent hospitalizations or challenges.Contact Information:

We accept children through age 17, or age 18 if they are still in high school or being treated at a children's hospital. We will give gifts to kids on a first-nominated basis as funds become available. We usually send department store gift cards, but if you know what the child's interests are, feel free to make a suggestion for a gift or for a store from which to purchase a gift card.
Should requests come in faster than we are able to fulfill them, the recipients will be chosen at the discretion of KOALA. Any information you can supply to help us make the determination would be appreciated.
