Angel Book Gifts
The Chaplain Patrick Jinks, the Coordinator of Spiritual Care and Bereavement at Prisma Children's Hospital, has created with Brenda Muntean an "Angel Book Memorial" in honor of Bella's love of God and wanting to spread the gospel, for the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) and Children's Hospital.
NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) Angel Books: We purchase the recommended spiritual books in Bella’s memory to be given to families who have babies in this unit at the hospital. While they are often limited in their ability to hold their babies, they are encouraged to bond through reading Bible stories, songs, and prayers.

Angel Gifts Program
In 2017, when Bella began this charity (before our official non-profit status)
over $10,000 dollars was donated in gifts, gift cards, pillowcases, Bibles and religious items, impacting thousands of children and their families and this continues presently.
We have been blessed to give the majority of our donations to many families throughout the state of South Carolina. Plus, we have sent donations to North Carolina, New Jersey, California, Illinois, Texas, and Ohio also, to other countries including Thailand, Romania and Canada. Our goal is to continue helping as many children as possible in spreading the love of God and hope through our many gifts.
Bella's faith and her commitment was strong. She NEVER missed a month of her pillowcase gift delivery - even during the last month of her life when she was in HOSPICE.
All it takes is one person, no matter how small the idea or gift to make a difference. WE are strong and together we can impact children & families TODAY!
