While you probably know that Kids Wish Network grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses, you may not have known that we also have several other programs that bring joy to sick and deserving children all across the country.
On March 3, we are headed to Shriners Hospital for Children – Tampa to throw a huge carnival themed party for the pediatric patients, their often forgotten about siblings and their parents. Kids Wish Network hosts these events about once a year and they are called the Kids Wish Network Holidays of Hope.
The Kids Wish Network staff works so hard to plan these events. At each HOH we give away brand news age appropriate games, toys and plush animals to all the children in attendance. This year, we are giving over $90,000 worth of toys to these amazing kids. We are so grateful that we can do such rewarding work. We know that these toys will go a long way to brightening the lives of the children at Shriners.
Aside from toys, our staff has been able to get tons of food, activities and music to help the HOH be a big hit with the kids. This event will have a fairy princess, face painters, a DJ, cotton candy, popcorn, corndogs, characters, an activity table where the kids can build their own toys and a HUGE cake. They kids are going to have a blast!
Stay tuned for all the details and all the pics from the event! We can’t wait to get the party started! And before you know it, we’ll be planning next year’s big event!
