Couples must often travel to receive the medical care necessary to have a child through embryo donation. Typically, at least two travel trips are necessary - one trip for initial care and assessment and a second to receive their precious embryo transfer. The added cost of travel can add just one more cost barrier to building a family.
Could you donate a gift certificate that can be used to help offset some of the costs incurred during their travel? Gift certificates from nationally chained entities are typically best, as travel occurs across many regions of the country.
Restaurant - suggested value $15 - 25
