Ireland’s Hope is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to increasing pediatric organ donation while providing financial assistance to families of children who are undergoing a heart transplant.
The organization was founded by Ireland’s aunt, Patti O’Connor, in 2015 after witnessing firsthand the financial impact that exists as families are waiting for their child to receive a heart transplant. Patti saw the gap that medical insurance doesn’t account for, everyday living expenses. These expenses include a families mortgage/rent payment, utility bills, transportation and food. The decision was made to pay it forward and bring HOPE to these families in need.
