Those who really know me know my passion for our local Children’s Hospitals here in South Florida! For the past 7 years my youngest has been in and out of the hospital for numerous neurological and intestinal issues. We have stayed anywhere from a few nights to a few weeks. She has been admitted into Broward General, Joe DiMaggio, Miami Children’s, Holtz/Jackson and even Boston Children’s.
Believe me when I tell you, those hospital rooms can get pretty lonely and depressing for both mom and child. The one thing that always perked my daughter up was visitors and small gifts. Yes family and friends are great visitors but it is the unexpected strangers who send a small gift that really makes you think “WOW, the world really does have great people out there”!
A few years ago I decided we have to find a way to bring smiles to these kids in the hospital. Now I may not know these children, not even their names or faces But I know what they are going through. If I can bring just one smile to their world for the day, my job is done!
This is a big job and I can not do it alone! I invite each and everyone of you to join me, even if it is just one coloring book and one pack of crayons! I promise you every single one makes a difference!
The best part is you can get your kids involved! Take them shopping with you and explain to them what you are doing and who the coloring books are going to. I promise you the kids will really stop and think about the activity!
This time around we have made it even easier to get the coloring books to us! We have several drop boxes around town!
