1. Shriners Hospitals for Children
“Shriners Hospitals for Children has a mission to:
- Provide the highest quality care to children with neuromusculoskeletal conditions, burn injuries and other special healthcare needs within a compassionate, family-centered and collaborative care environment.
- Provide for the education of physicians and other healthcare professionals.
- Conduct research to discover new knowledge that improves the quality of care and quality of life of children and families.
This mission is carried out without regard to race, color, creed, sex or sect, disability, national origin or ability of a patient or family to pay.
Shriners Hospitals for Children will be the unquestioned leader, nationally and internationally, in caring for children and advancing the field in its specialty areas.”
This charity does amazing things. My mom has a friend who’s son had an arm and leg amputated and they paid for all of his medical expenses and it changed the boys world. Seriously an amazing charity.
“Here’s The Deal
Since 2003, we’ve set up and organized Child’s Play, a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in our network of over 70 hospitals worldwide. Over the years, you as a community have answered the call and come together to raise millions of dollars.
Child’s Play works in two ways. With the help of hospital staff, we set up gift wish lists full of video games, toys, books, and other fun stuff for kids. By clicking on a hospital location on our map, you can view that hospital’s wish list and send a gift.
Child’s Play also receives cash donations throughout the year. With those cash donations, we purchase new consoles, peripherals, games, and more for hospitals and therapy facilities. These donations allow for children to enjoy age-appropriate entertainment, interact with their peers, friends, and family, and can provide vital distraction from an otherwise generally unpleasant experience.”
This is an awesome idea. Kids who are in the hospital for any length of time want something to distract them whether it be books or game exc. And it just so happens that the childrens hospital that my cardiologist is at is on the list of hospitals so I definitely want to spotlight this charity.
Everything to do with Heart Disease and Congenital Heart Defects. Just to spread awareness about the seriousness of Heart Disease.
“Books for Kids is a charity that raises money to buy brand new books for children at local hospitals. With your help and donations, you can give a child the gift of adventure, inspiration, and happiness through a simple story.
