shop to give

Dayton Children’s is proud to have the support of so many amazing community businesses. Giving to Dayton Children’s can be as easy as shopping with one of our partners.

The Little Exchange

The Little Exchange is that place! The Little Exchange has been in business for 70 years at 45 Park Avenue in Oakwood. They are run by 75 friendly volunteers and donate all of their shops proceeds to the hospital. Over the years, The Little Exchange has given over $1.7 million and currently supports the Family Resource Connection. Their shop will not disappoint! Visit The Little Exchange for your next gift purchase.

Children's Miracle Network balloons

Many businesses in the area sell Children's Miracle Network balloons and other icons throughout the year. All the money raised in the Dayton area and the 20 county service region directly benefits Dayton Children's. Many of these companies may also have change collection jars or conduct special events during the year and we urge you to actively participate.


Amazon has discontinued its AmazonSmile program, which allowed shoppers to choose a charity to support through their purchases. However, you can still shop through Amazon to support our Child Life team by ordering an item from their Wish List and sending it directly to Dayton Children's Hospital!
