Life of Dad Charity

Charity's Role at Life of Dad

Charity is, and always will be, an integral part of Life of Dad. Founder Tom Riles’ passion for charity became clear when his daughter, Barbara, was born with a congenital heart defect, requiring life-saving open heart surgery at only three days old. After she fully recovered, Riles and his family appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, sharing their inspiring story.

Dads Doing Good a.k.a. #DadsDoingGood

Created by Life of Dad and National Fatherhood Initiative and sponsored by Honda, the #DadsDoingGood campaign will feature five different feel-good videos of dads spreading joy to the community.
"Dads Doing Good" features groups of dads in the greater Los Angeles area conducting child-centered community-service projects.

Life of Dad Comedy Night Fundraiser

Comedians Don Friesen, Tommy Riles and Drake Witham at Life of Dad Comedy Night
On April 29th, 2012, at the Whitefire Theater in Sherman Oaks, CA, Life of Dad produced the first in a series of comedy nights, benefitting Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.

All of the comics performing for charity were dads, and the lineup included Tony Alfieri, Gil Rief (Ellen), Mark Schiff (Letterman, Leno), Steve Mittleman (Letterman, Leno), Drake Witham (Late Late Show), Brian Kiley (Conan), and Don Friesen (Showtime).

Hosted by Tom Riles, all of the proceeds went to the Heart Institute at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where Riles’ daughter received life-saving open heart surgery at just three days old.

The feedback was extremely positive, which means that Life of Dad Comedy night will surely be back. Watch the show here.

Dad Social Network Fundraiser

On February 7th, along with the start of Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week, Life of Dad became the first social network for dads.

Life of Dad is now a social networking and entertainment destination where fathers can connect, share stories, blogs, videos, podcasts, and more.

Currently, for every new user on Life of Dad, Ralph’s Grocery Company will donate $1 to Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles’ Heart Institute.

The Heart Institute is where Life of Dad Founder Tom Riles’ daughter, Barbara, underwent life-saving open-heart surgery.

Saving tiny Hearts Society

Saving tiny Hearts Society
The Saving tiny Hearts Society’s mission is to raise money for grossly under-funded, lifesaving grass roots research of congenital heart defects (CHD's). This seed funding acts as a bridge for this research to millions of dollars of extramural funding from the National Institute of Health (NIH) or other outside funding. CHD's are America’s #1 birth defect affecting over 40,000 babies every year!

To date the StHS has raised over a half-million dollars and funded five (5) research projects. The StHS has no paid employees and our organization and board of directors’ functions with only volunteers who share the passion for helping to extend the lives of these children born with congenital heart defects.

The Saving tiny Hearts Society has 501(c)(3) tax exempt status and a contribution to the organization may be deductible as a charitable contribution.
