Did you know almost one out of four children in the United States have a chronic illness? One out of four!! When a child faces medical challenges the whole family is impacted and some days can be difficult.
At Spreading Sunshine we want families who face pediatric illness to know they are loved and not alone. One of the practical ways we show love is to send a Sunshine Box, a care package designed to deliver smiles and joy to a child who has a chronic illness or special needs. This work is made possible because of the generosity of donors, volunteers and strategic partners.
We are thankful to be working with Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, TN. Earlier this month, a team of volunteers helped us spread love as a part of their Bellevue Loves Memphis work day. This sunshine crew filled 30 Sunshine Boxes, put together 100 Sunshine Treat bags, 50 mini-candy bags and decorated lots and lots of Sunshine bags.
Sunshine Boxes and sunshine bags touch lives. Meet Olivia, she will be receiving one of the Sunshine Boxes filled by our friends at Bellevue. Olivia has Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. She also has right brain damage and under-developed white matter.
We need your help!! Would you like to help us show love to families like Olivia’s?
