Children's Hospital of New Jersey presents....The WISH LIST!!!

Friday, December 16, 2011
I wake every morning and go to sleep every night thanking my lucky stars for healthy children. I try to never take their good health for granted. I know that in a second, everything can change.

For so many families, a sick or physically disabled child is a reality. A stark reality that they face everyday. One that is just as difficult for the children as it is for the families. The hospital, unfortunately, is the second home for so many of these sick children. It is their home away from home, and making their stay as comfortable and as tolerable as possible is a primary goal of Children's Hospital of New Jersey.

Children’s Hospital of New Jersey helps nearly 50,000 children – from birth through age 19 - every year. And now you can help them too. Supplies and toys are constantly in need for the children cared for at Children’s Hospital of New Jersey. This is where you can help.

The wish list is comprised of a lot of the items the caregivers have deemed are in short supply. These items include special developmental items that help premature babies feel like they are still in their mothers’ womb, sensory equipment to treat children with learning and behavioral challenges, and play things to distract a hospitalized child from the tedium and fear that can accompany a trip to the hospital.

Now you can help care for kids in the hospital. Bringing some comfort and light into the lives of children who suffer from various conditions is a blessing to their families and something they certainly wish for. It’s very simple to donate a tax-deductible gift online. Visit Scroll through the list of approved products. Click the “make a gift now!” link underneath the product(s) you wish to donate.

This form also allows you to just make a general donation for the children’s hospital as well – the hospital will be sure to put it to good use caring for the children. It’s that easy.

The simple truth is that a trip to the hospital is a stressful situation for anyone. Imagine what it must be like for a child. You can make their time here as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. Please, take this opportunity to put a smile on a kids face. Donate a gift today and make a difference in the life of an ill child!
