The Power of Play


We walked into our room at Children’s Hospital after having a wagon ride and found a bag full of toys. We had no idea where they came from or who brought them. We just saw a hand written tag on the front of the bag, “Jackson 11 months”. Reading the tag immediately brought me to tears. Four days ago we had a bouncing baby boy with a big tummy. Today we have a bouncing baby boy with cancer. Your kindness has left me speechless and humbled. The past few days have been almost unbearable. With support and encouragement like yours we are able to keep moving forward. The next few months are going to be hard, even harder for Jackson. Having support like this makes things easier. Thank you, from the top to the bottom of my heart, Thank YOU! -Jackson’s Mom


I am a patient at the Children’s hospital here in Colorado, and have been for many years now. I have had to be in the hospital a lot lately and as I’m sure you know, it can get very boring and gloomy. A few days ago I received one of your Bags Of Fun and my whole world changed. I first just want to say thank you so much for your generosity and sincerity. Anyone who has to be in the hospital could always use a little pick me up and that’s exactly what you did for me! I am truly astonished by your compassion and kindness, and your desire to make others smile before yourself. You are a role model for myself and others, and you have truly inspired me to always give back to others; even if it just makes them smile. I wish you the best of luck in the future with this business, and I think it is one of the greatest organizations I have ever seen.

Thank you again so much!,
Jill Laplante-Patient at Children’s Hospital
