Breanna’s Gift is an arts program offering dance, visual arts, music, and performing arts opportunities at children’s hospitals and home-away-from-home facilities around the country that began in 2008 at Children's MN in St. Paul. The organization covers all costs including teachers’ compensation, costumes, dance shoes, and supplies needed for art, dance, music, and performing arts. Their mission is to bring smiles to the faces of children with cancer and other serious illnesses through the magic of the arts. The entire Breanna’s Gift program is free to all participants and the facilities they serve.
Breanna's Gift has been providing classes to the UW-Madison American Family Children’s Hospital since 2017. They offer two programs to meet the needs of the children. One is Art Takeout, which is a series of individual art classes in a box designed with project instructions and supplies. It is specifically for children too sick to leave their hospital rooms to join group classes. The second program is Art Take2, a program created in May of 2020 to provide a new way to bring the arts to children. It is a library of art class videos along with supplies needed for the follow-along classes. This is an ongoing library that includes all classes that are brought live to the children.
