Custom donor gifts for Lurie Children's Hospital

We know how challenging it is to find the perfect gift for individuals who can afford anything. Working in collaboration with our clients we created this guide and thought we would share a copy: 10 Considerations When Designing the Perfect Gift.

Perhaps you will be inspired by this recent project that we completed for Lurie Children's Hospital. Joanna Riester contacted me to create a unique pashmina and silk tie to help celebrate top donors during their campaign kick-off event last month and here is a sneak peek of the project.

Joanna Riester, Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago Foundation, said:

“When considering the right gifts to celebrate the kick-off of the Lurie Children’s campaign for every child, we knew we needed something:

  • unique
  • personal
  • meaningful to our donors
  • we needed gifts that would tell our stories.

We worked with Harris Made to design and create bespoke ties and pashminas for our campaign chairs, cabinet members and lead donors to wear with pride as ambassadors for the campaign.

These custom pieces featured icons that represented our promises to every child: the promise of a cure; the promise of a safer space and the promise of a healthier future. I am grateful for Emma’s thoughtful partnership in designing and crafting beautiful items that are authentically Lurie Children’s.”

At Harris Made we design custom pashminas, silk ties and scarves and deliver in 12-14 weeks in a foil embossed presentation box and printed gift card to reinforce your mission and provenance of your thoughtful gift.
