About Sparkling Hearts Foundation

Sparkling Hearts Foundation is a student-led nonprofit organization dedicated to improving patients' well-being.

Why We Started SHF

The journey to recovery is a difficult process, especially in a time of isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our co-founders, Nimi Patel, Carissa Osterhoudt, and Vivian Vu, developed this non-profit organization in hopes of positively contributing to the well-being of patients.
