Posters of Encouragement for children’s hospitals
Each year nearly 16,000 children are diagnosed with pediatric cancer in the United States. Many have multiple hospital stays for days, weeks or months at a time in local children’s hospitals.
Since January of 2015 we have spent many hours at Children’s Hospital of Orange County on the Oncology unit bringing entertainment to various events and to hospital beds for extremely ill children. When a child and family are confined to hospitals for long periods of time a little goes a long way. A visit, a friend, a gift, any small gesture means so much. This month we are not only making items for these children but are also raising money to bring more programs and entertainment to the children staying at local hospitals. First we will start with making posters of encouragement, which can be done for any hospital, anywhere in the country.
This month we need two things from our Ambassadors:
- Gather some friends and make some posters of encouragement
- SPREAD THE WORD ABOOUT OUR POSTER NIGHT/FUNDRAISER!
