While many of our scheduled 2020 events will be rescheduled or ultimately canceled, we are excited to confirm that on June 12th we will be broadcasting a virtual June Jam. Bags of Fun is partnering with Charles Schwab to reach a specific group of patients at Children’s Hospital – Palliative Care.
What is Palliative Care?
Palliative Care (pronounced pal-lee-uh-tiv) is specialized medical care for kids with serious illness. This type of care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness.
As the coronavirus crisis continues, parents everywhere are struggling to keep their children healthy, positive and occupied. So, you can only imagine how difficult it is to nurture, protect and inspire kids who are fighting a serious illness in the hospital.
We have 100 kids at Children’s Hospital who need our help right now.
We NEED you to help us give these kids the power of play as one of the most natural remedies to get better. Every donation makes a significant impact – now more than ever.
Why Bags of Fun?
Our Bags are not manufactured. They are carefully crafted for each child, taking into consideration the best means to reduce their tension, anxiety and fatigue during their individual treatment.
Our Bags Are:
- A distraction from fear
- A calming mechanism
- A respite from negativity
- A building block for receptivity to treatment
- A proven tool that builds hope and normalcy
How Can You Participate in June Jam
Our June Jam event celebrates the power of community, the power of music and the power of play. While we can’t all be together in person, we encourage you to gather your friends and family, however you are most comfortable, following the COVID-19 guidelines, and celebrate togetherness. We need your participation to help children and families who are more isolated now, facing challenging diagnoses and treatments. We need YOUR community to help us deliver a sense of relief and normalcy.
