Their is a program a Sick Kids Hospital where crafters like me can make and donate homemade cards for the kids or for the kids to give loved ones. I spent much of my childhood at Sick Kids and love the fact I can give back this way. I have made multiples of these cards and they are all going to Sick Kids Hospital. If you’re interested in donating cards yourself please see information below.
HOLIDAYS AT THE HOSPITAL FOR SICK CHILDREN
GREETING CARD PROJECT
Our Child Life Specialists try to ensure that children who have to spend the holidays in the Hospital have as normalized an experience as possible. Part of many holidays is the act of giving cards to people you care about and sometimes you just want to give someone a card to say THANK YOU!
There is no limit to how creative your card can be and cards can be given out to people of all ages! Patients have many people they come into contact with that could be the lucky recipient of the blank card you have made for them:
- Extended family members (grandparents, aunts/uncles, etc)
- Friends (including furry friends/pets!)
- Hospital staff
Please leave the INSIDE OF THE CARD BLANK so that patients can personalize the card with their own messages and don’t forget the envelope!
Some popular themes for greeting cards at this time of year include:
- Birthday cards
- Mother’s Day
- Father’s Day
- Thank you cards
Dropped off at any time our Main Information Desk in our Atrium, which is accessible from the 170 Elizabeth Street entrance or mailed if you prefer to;
