VALENTINE'S DAY CARDS
for Hospitalized Children
Nearly 330 handmade, gorgeous, heartfelt, Valentines were made and delivered to hospitalized children at Miller Children's Hospital in Long Beach and the Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC).
For the gorgeous cards many, many thanks go out to:
The students of University High School!!!
Rainbow Rising Child Care at Bonita Canyon Elementary
Turtle Rock Elementary Child Development Center
Turtle Rock Community Park After School Program AND the children of American Family Housing
For this Valentine's Day season, we asked the children of American Family Housing (www.shelterforthehomeless.org) to participate in making cards for other children who are going through a lot. Being of service to others is empowering and we wanted to bring this experience to the kids to who participate in our Art Program for Homeless Children.
The Valentine's Day Cards were delivered on February 13th to the Child Life departments at Miller Children's Hospital in Long Beach and the Children's Hospital of Orange County (CHOC). As you can well imagine, a childhood spent in a hospital is a life without a lot of joy. The Child Life professionals work to help give the children as much of a "childhood" as they can.
