Friends Around the World for Kelly Hartog

Culver City, CA


Please join us as we send love and support to our good friend, Kelly Hartog. She will be receiving a new kidney on March 29, 2022, from Pamela Stockwell another wonderful friend. Both of these women have been such an inspiration, we admire them both for their strength and courage. (**Please Note: We have also created a page for Pamela and it is listed under a similar name --- Friends Around the World for Pamela Stockwell and can be found here: In a show of support, we have organized this campaign here on the Give-In-Kind website to make it simple to send a gift to Kelly electronically if you wish, post a message of encouragement for her and check for updates when they are available from her family and friends. You have many options of “giving in a show of support” here including, meal deliveries, grocery gift cards, entertainment gift cards, donations via PayPal (please use Friends and Family) and also showing support through Kelly’s special Go Fund Me Account! A calendar can be found below, you can reserve a spot and purchase a gift card for meals, groceries and/or gifts. Or you can simple purchase a gift using the “Wishlist” located to the right. Kelly will be recuperating and off work for several weeks after her surgery. The link below is to Pamela Stockwell’s blog post about her journey to being a kidney donor for Kelly Hartog! (You must read this!! It is a wonderful view into Pamela and Kelly's journey!) Please be sure and view the “wishlist” to the right. You can find fun things to purchase and send electronically for places such as: Barnes and Noble, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Netflix, Google Play, Audible, gift baskets, Petco (in case you would like to send some love to Bronte as well!!) etc. (why not add some fun options for Kelly during her recovery time! What author wouldn't want to read or catch up on the latest show!) We encourage you to "share" this page on your social media pages, blogs, and with family and friends who enjoy "paying it forward" and/or doing "random acts of kindness".

Special Notes

Here are other ideas for gift cards etc. Not all of these are available here on “Give-In-Kind” but they can be purchased elsewhere and mailed to Kelly. Local Grocery Stores are: Amazon Fresh and Sprouts, Grub hub is an excellent choice for the town Kelly lives in. This service makes it possible for Kelly and her caregiver to order foods of their choice and have it delivered whenever needed. The above are just a few ideas where gift cards are available if you prefer to purchase a gift card and drop it in the mail instead of electronically sending them via this website! (Note - some of the above places I mentioned were not options at all for purchase here through Give-In-Kind, so I could not add them to the "Wishlist".) Kelly is a vegetarian and may or may not have dietary restrictions after surgery.
