Gifted Hearts, a 501c charity, provides medical care packs, school supplies, and essential living items to children locally and around the world.

The charity was founded in 2015 by two children. Brother and sister TJ and Isabella Manfuso, residing on Long Island, NY, have parents who are avid travelers. TJ and Isabella have been fortunate to have traveled with their parents to many countries.

Through their travels, they discovered that many children lack basic needs such as school supplies and medical care. From their experiences they were inspired to form the Gifted Hearts charity. To date they have provided supplies to Ecuador, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, and the Philippines, as well as to their local community in Huntington, NY.
