Monthly Visits
Alabama football players make monthly trips to Children's Hospital of Alabama in Birmingham, AL to visit with sick children and their families. We hand out goodie bags that are provided by our foundation, sign autographs, and take pictures with the patients and their families. We are also proud to say we have funded the "Beads of Courage" program in the pulmonary, solid organ, burn, and cardiac units at Children's of Alabama!
What do we do to help?
The Austin Shepherd Foundation takes special care to make each child feel like the most important person in the world. We understand the unique needs of each family and their desire to introduce joy into an otherwise sad, difficult and painful experience.
Football Games
Tickets for Alabama Football games at Bryant-Denny Stadium are randomly given out each game to a child and one of their family members. They will also gain an opportunity to meet the players after the game. This is a great opportunity for pictures! It is sure to be an experience they will never forget.
The Austin Shepherd Foundation accepts monetary and gift donations. All monetary donations will be given to Children's of Alabama in Birmingham. We are a proud sponsor of "Beads of Courage". We ask that any gift donation be appropriate for males and females of all ages. These gifts will be put into gift bags for the hospital's patients and passed out during visits.
To make a donation, see our "Donation" tab or mail cash or a check made out to "Austin Shepherd Foundation" to 14 Oakwood Court, Tuscaloosa, AL 35401. 

Thank you to one of our largest sponsors of gifts for the kids:
