In early March, hospitals closed playrooms for children and families inpatient. Bags of Fun's mission to bring joy, laughter and relief to every child fighting a life-threatening disease or condition suddenly became more necessary than ever before.
Hi Kids –
Although alot of your activities may be canceled this summer, we’d like you to keep hopping with fun at home in honor of the kids that are stuck in the hospital. We are introducing Fun Fridays this summer. Each Friday during the summer we will send out a fun activity that has been inspired by our Bag recipients. If you enjoy them, please tag us on social media with #BOFfunfridays. We love when kids reach out and help kids that are in the fight of their life in the hospital. Here’s to the POWER OF PLAY during the summer of 2020!
Deliver a Bag of Fun to every sick child whose health and happiness is both compromised and threatened.
