Happy Holidays


Dear  Friend,

I hope this message finds you well and safe. Times are not easy and I am trying to find comfort in the fact that if there was ever a time to stay at home, the Holidays are it. It gets colder outside, the days are short and hot chocolate in the evening while working on a jigsaw puzzle has never been more appealing. 2000 pieces, anyone?

I know this year has been particularly hard financially for lots of people. If you can, I would like to ask you to consider making a donation. With no fundraiser this year and still being able to work with many pediatric patients despite COVID-19, your help of any size is greatly appreciated.

We wish you a warm and wonderful Holiday, may you enjoy these quiet days and a healthy year 2021.

Sharing with you today a wonderful story with amazing artwork. Ashley wanted to “be” in her favorite book, “The Paper Princess” by Elisa Kleven. She created all the necessary art, the paper princess, the jay, the nest and by filming her in front of a green screen, we were able to let her be part of the story. She then directed a large group of staff members, and Elisa Kleven herself as the narrator, for the voice over. Ashley speaks the role of the Paper Princess.
