Balloons for Luv received the sweetest recognition from UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. We are delighted to know the positive impact we are making in the lives of the children. We recently participated in the 2021 Prom and are touched by the message and story shared below.

“We are thankful for you ALL the time, but your donation to prom 2021 especially made our hospitalized teens stays so much more special!” We have one patient who loves his balloon so much that he has been holding onto it almost non-stop for a week. We were even able to give him a backup when his original started to sink a little.

11 years ago Balloons for Luv was founded in memory of my loving mother. She was an amazing, beautiful (inside and out), hardworking, kind, generous, funny and loving woman. I strive to be half of the woman she was. While she is not here physically, her amazing love has touched the lives of thousands of children at hospitals through Balloons for Luv. Zoe at Stanford Children’s was thrilled to receive balloons!❤️

A Mother’s Day Tribute
Balloons for Luv was founded in honor of Latifa Sayed, a woman with incredible compassion for people. She always had kindness in her face, in her eyes, in her smile, in the warmth of her greeting. She not only gave her care, she gave her love as well.
Latifa was an amazing woman with a beautiful heart. She instilled in Barbara great values, morals, and a compassionate heart. As a little girl she watched her mother touch many lives through random acts of kindness. When visiting family or friends she would always bring a little treat for each child in the home. “While she is not here physically her love and acts of kindness live on through Balloons for Luv Organization lifting children’s spirits one balloon at a time” says Barbara.

How do you find out which hospitals are participating in balloons for luv?
Such a wonderful and amazing thing to do! I just "liked" your organization and posted your link on my FB page! ~Yvonne Cabral
Keep up with the good work Barbara and best of luck to the Balloons for Luv Organization!
Thank you so much to all of our good-hearted Benefactors. Without your help, we could not possibly reach out to so many kids in need of love, courage & support. As of yesterday Jan 1, 2010, Balloons For Luv Foundation have helped, cheered up, & reached out to 340 children in pediatric bedsides in children's hospitals. Pls feel free to continue your support to reach out to those other kids we hope to touch by visiting our website. Thank you so much for all your loving support. God Bless your hearts & more power to your 2011.
What a great idea. We all know how much cildren love balloons! Best of luck to your organization!!
We support the Balloons for Luv Organization in everything they do and stand by their passion to reach thousands of children across the USA.
Oops, forgot my husband was signed on and not me, see below! He fully supports Ballons for Luv as well, just substitute "father" for "mother", same sentiment!
As a mother my heart goes out to each and every child on the planet. How utterly wonderful and refreshing to discover this site, just when I thought altruism was on the wane in our society. Keep up the good work!
Fabulous effort guys! Beautiful hearts doing beautiful work. People like you make the world go 'round.
