The "Why".

Our mission is to provide children with time to “just-be-a-kid” and help them overcome the current hardships they are facing.  When a child is hospitalized, treatments and diagnoses become a priority for parents and doctors.  As a result, play is often disregarded, or considered of minor importance. 

 

However, the role and value of play increases when a child is hospitalized, as it decisively contributes to emotional, mental well-being, self-confidence and self-esteem. 

 

Our programming places a specific value on play, imagination, and creativity.  By doing so, we encourage children to focus on these aspects, which can actually improve the likelihood their medical treatment will have a positive outcome.  100% of professionals surveyed that have worked with us stated that our services have a direct and positive impact the quality of life for the children we provide them to.

Your support is vital in allowing our chapter cover its programming expenses to not only reach as many children possible, but to provide each of them with the most magical and memorable experience of all!
