and brighten up a pediatric patient's room!
Make a hospitalized child smile
It's amazing! Each patient gives us a wish list of their favorite things and we go shopping. Our volunteers then transform each room into a cozy, peronalized space filled with things the child will find comforting during their stay. And, the kids take all the goodies home with them when they're discharged.
The photo below is James, our very first patient. James was so excited for his Minions room that he was waiting in the hallway for us when we arrived!
Next, we decorated Jonah's room with everything Warriors -- banners, blankets, wall decals, Steph Curry jersey and a real basketball hoop. He was grinning ear to ear. As we left the room, we were told that he'd been in the hospital for 70 days, and this was the first time anyone had ever seen him smile.
Your gift brings that smile. You make the difference. I see the joy on every child's face.
