Who is Oma?

Oma - Mom“Oma” a word for grandmother in Dutch.

From Holland, Irvine Ruhé dedicated her life to her children, her grandchildren, and countless others.

She was known to hold her hand over her heart and say: “Children are in my heart.”

When founding the organization, it was easy when it came time to pick a name.

Since 2010, Oma’s Heart was dedicated to my Mom, the Oma of my children and to so many others whose lives she touched.

“Children are my Heart” – Irvine Ruhe

Oma’s Heart is a 501(c)(3) Charity

Our “Oma,” Irvine Ruhe, wanted to help children and families who couldn’t afford presents for special holidays, like Christmas.

Our parents truly embodied the Christmas spirit, and what it means to be selfless and giving. Oma’s Heart began with the idea to help families who couldn’t provide Christmas presents for their children.
