May Lifting Children’s Spirits with The Hospital Activity Book for Children
The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc upon lives everywhere and it makes no exception for children. Children who find themselves in the hospital are often scared and alone. The pandemic restrictions make things worse for them by limiting the communal toys they play with to prevent the spread of germs. Hence, when the HABFC reached out to the Brevitas team for support, we gladly sponsored them with a $700 donation. The sponsorship ensures that facilities are kept well-stocked with activity books that can be provided at no cost to children.
These books are packed with lots of fun games, colouring pages, and puzzles that keeps children happily occupied and takes their minds off what is going on in the hospital. The organization has worked closely with Child Life Specialists to cater the activities to the young audience. Moreover, the books boost children’s moods and offer a positive distraction from what appears to be an endless wait in the hospital. Even parents’ anxiety levels is alleviated when they see their children content and engaged in fun educational activities.
One key benefit is the fact any funds raised from advertising sales are used by other charities such as SickKids Foundation and Make-A-Wish. Furthermore, the funding is used to purchase new lifesaving medical equipment for Sick Kids clinics and operating rooms. Make-A-Wish uses the funds to support their mission in bringing children’s wishes to life.
We are privileged to support HABFC during a time when they are struggling due to the unprecedented demands of the pandemic. These activity books and Wishes granted will help fortify the emotional strength of our children, so direly needed to battle their illnesses. We are extremely proud to be a part of the solution.
