Lydia's Love Moments is a Non-Profit charity through the Community Foundation. This charity not only serves as a great source of encouragement for many individuals, but it hits close to home as the creators of this charity are close family friends- the Ghirardi family. About seven years ago Lydia Ghirardi was born with a hypoplastic left heart. She spent a very long time in Children’s hospital in Pittsburgh and eventually, several months later, was able to get a new heart. Lydia's story was the inspiration for her parents, Kim and Jay Ghirardi, to create this Non-Profit, Lydia’s Love Moments, to help support cardiac children and their families in Pittsburgh. They host ice-cream socials for fundraising and any money they can get helps. We hope that the sales of these handmade bracelets can serve as yet another outlet for more money to be raised for these children and their families.
