CAREGIFTED gives respite to full-time, unpaid family caregivers through restorative all-expense-paid getaways, and seeks to raise awareness about those caregivers, whose devotions to the helpless (and whose gifts to society) are most poignantly undersung. Founded in 2012 by poet Heather McHugh, CAREGIFTED is an established 501(c)3 charity organization. Getaways are located in California, and Vancouver Island, and can be scheduled from March through December. To read first-hand the experiences of past getaway recipients, please visit our blog at caregiversaregifted.org.
