Heart to Heart Gifts

Heart To Heart Gifts is a way to give a gift and a contribution at the same time.  These items will not be gifts that people forget about once they are gone, but will remind people of their friend's compassion and a way to give back. Money raised from these gifts will support programs and resources for people affected by MS, as well as research to help find a cure. For more information or to order your gift, visit http://www.hearttoheartgifts.org/.
