Supporting the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

To say this year’s donation to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) was a significant success is an understatement. My team and I were able to collect 256 buddies! I cannot begin to express how grateful I am to work with such giving and kind people! You never cease to amaze me! This was the biggest donation we have ever had, and CHOP was beyond overwhelmed by the number of kids that will have smiles on their faces because of this. This would not be possible or as successful without all of your continued support. Nurses often perform vitals on the buddies first, helping ease the children’s nerves before their own vitals are taken.

They also are major companions to the children when they go into surgery!

Thank You!
