Ten years ago I was introduced to some volunteers, wearing their bright yellow shirts and smiles upon their faces. I quickly realized how powerful their mission was in creating a safe, therapeutic and fun environment for pediatric patients and their families. Their compassion to help others is contagious, so let’s jump aboard and help them bring cheer to kids this holiday season!
Help Project Sunshine spread holiday joy this season to pediatric patients! Project Sunshine is collecting toy donations for children and families facing medical challenges. You can purchase toys and games on their Amazon wish list to be distributed to patients at the organization’s partner hospitals across the country. With your generosity, the holidays will be brighter for children and families going through a very difficult time, both emotionally and financially.
Please help Project Sunshine brighten the holidays for families in need by clicking here to purchase a toy to donate.
If you are interested in organizing a toy drive in your local community, contact Project Sunshine at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also support the organization by using smile.amazon.com and selecting Project Sunshine when you do your holiday shopping, or by making a donation on their website.
Project Sunshine empowers a dynamic and dedicated corps of over 15,000 volunteers to bring programming – recreational (arts), educational (tutoring and mentoring) and social service (HIV and nutritional counseling) – to 100,000 children facing medical challenges and their families in 175 cities across the United States and in four international locations. Project Sunshine volunteers spread sunshine, restoring a crucial sense of normalcy to the pediatric healthcare environment. To learn more, please visit www.projectsunshine.org.
