Welcome to another edition Why We Gift Wednesday! Each week, we celebrate one of the thousands of reasons that we truly love giving by hearing from our wonderful customers themselves. Whether they’re honoring relationships, feeling grateful, or simply being there for one another, Why We Gift Wednesday: Your Stories is all about the greatest gift we can give to one another: connection.
So why do we gift? Our customer Todd wrote this amazing story to us:
“I recently had an organ transplant and my wife was the living donor. After surgery we went to the transplant ward for recovery. We had never had surgery before and based on experiences at other hospitals I expected it to be hell. But the Johns Hopkins nurses in the transplant ward were amazing. Amazing bedside manner, extremely helpful and pleasant. We were there for 9 days and our recovery was quick because we were treated so well. In that time we all got to know each other and even joked around. It was like no other hospital experience we had had previously. So when we got discharged and were home I felt like we should thank them. Didn’t want to send flowers or a fruit basket so I searched online and came across GiftTree. There was a giant basket of chocolate and goodies and each item could be shared. Perfect. So I ordered it and they received it right away. Thank you Gift Basket for helping me thank those that took care of us.”
Receiving above-and-beyond medical care is just another perfect reason to give a generous gift. Doctors and Nurses are so selfless, going out of their way to serve those in need.
