Kyle Shines On

While on an annual family group camping trip, 16 -year -old Kyle Zuleg was killed by a falling tree limb while playing flashlight tag with friends in a forest preserve. Kyle’s family made the selfless decision to donate Kyle’s organ, saving five people.

After his passing, Kyle’s family created the Kyle Zuleg foundation in his honor. One of the missions of Kyle’s foundation is to support organ donor families. In honor of those who choose and are able to give the gift of life through organ donation, a monogrammed “forever in our hearts” blanket is given to the families as they wait while their loved one is prepared to give the gift of life. Gift of Hope has partnered with the Zuleg Foundation to provide hospitals in our service area with blankets for donor families. To learn more about the Zuleg Foundation, visit
