Tips & Ideas

Help your friend "mend".

For Threading the Needle Day, offer to do some mending for your friend. Putting buttons back on shirts, hemming pants, or fixing a zipper. Who has time for these tasks when going through medical treatments, caring for a newborn or recovering from surgery? Your offer to thread a needle and do some sewing will be a great gift. #WhatFriendsDo

Who we are

How we've helped

"It's stressful for me to plan a homemade meal so WhatFriendDo's idea to take a breakfast basket was just my speed. I delivered a basket of bagels, fresh fruit, homemade muffins, coffee and orange juice. I felt really good about it and my friends loved it. "

Amy G. Houston, TX

"My husband loves video games so my WhatFriendsDo personal concierge suggested setting up times for friends to come play with him. This idea was a big hit and it really helped pass the time of a long in-home recovery."

Jamie E. Ann Arbor, MI

"To celebrate my friend coming home from the hospital, WhatFriendsDo suggested we line the streets with friends holding up signs of love and support. I cannot describe the feeling of seeing these on our path home and of course, she felt like a celebrity."
