Spirit of Children brings fun and funding to hospitals at Halloween and all year long. Founded in 2006 with a simple idea and a hand full of hospitals in our own backyard, Spirit of Children has exploded into a multi-million dollar fundraising program for over 130 hospitals that directly affects thousands of children across the US and Canada. What makes the Spirit of Children program so unique and so special is that 100% of every dollar we collect is given directly to the Child Life departments at our partner hospitals. Local donations stay local and we do not take a penny for overhead costs.
Each year the money we donate to the Child Life departments in our local hospitals is used to purchase items based on that hospital's need. Child Life directors determine what the funds will be used for and the benefits range from purchasing books, TVs and craft materials to providing additional staff and classes click here for a detailed list of items purchased. Ultimately the items purchased with the money collected by Spirit of Children helps children cope with the stresses of hospital life, communicate their emotions through interactive play and art and offers the best experience possible while in the hospital setting.
