By giving them their wings back, it means a lot. It's a symbol for freedom, the wings itself instill so much hope...Just playing with wings symbolizes I can fly where ever I want to, nurturing the most important part of your spirit.

My Wings is pleased to announce the global launch of Giving Wings, a unique children’s charity program focused on assisting the healing process of the children with special needs. Company sources have also revealed that My Wings has already partnered with Shriners Hospitals for Children®- Northern California and Pay It Forward Sweden to implement this philanthropic project in the United States and Sweden.
My Wings is a Swedish organization that has the distinction of designing innovative and playful children’s shirts that have wings. The company’s founder Lee Giove strongly believes that there is a deep correlation between imagination, playfulness, and the well-being of a child. Their winged shirts have been created to encourage a sense of freedom and empowerment amongst the children. These Fairtrade certified shirts are made of organic cotton, and come with designs of wings of dragons, fairies, and butterflies. These shirts will be given away to children around the world as part of the Giving Wings child welfare program.
Shriners Hospitals for Children®- Northern California is one of America’s most highly rated children’s hospitals known for their philanthropic endeavours. Expressing pleasure at being a part of the Giving Wings program, the hospital’s Manager of Therapeutic Recreation/Child Life Program Melissa Grialou said, "We will be offering kids their 'wings' once they 'graduate' from the acute care stage, meaning when they are sent to our outpatient therapy program or when they are discharged home. These are some of the most meaningful moments in the recovery process, and we want to celebrate all they have been through and accomplished by giving them their ‘wings’ to fly freely into the world again!"
Pay It Forward Sweden is a philanthropic organization dedicated to helping people in need throughout Sweden, including thousands of newly arrived refugee children. Highlighting the benefits of the Giving Wings program, Pay It Forward Sweden’s founder Marielle Peterson stated, "By giving them their wings back, it means a lot. It's a symbol for freedom, the wings itself instill so much hope...Just playing with wings symbolizes I can fly where ever I want to, nurturing the most important part of your spirit."
Lee Giove is currently engaged in efforts to expand the Giving Wings program to different countries all over the world. With this objective, he has recently launched an Indiegogo campaign to support this charity campaign. “I have self-funded thousands of dollars to get to this point, but now need help from others to take My Wings and the Giving Wings program to children around the world. I humbly and respectfully ask for your help to reach our goal and to uplift children and help them to soar in life,” he states.
