KINDNESS WALK - RICHMOND VA 2015
The MISS Foundation's Kindness Walk: Remembering Those We Love is an international memorial walk to remember all of the beloved children who are gone too soon, and to honor all of the mothers, fathers, families and communities by participating in Kindness Projects as a way to continue their child's legacy. In memory of our precious children, we will be doing a Remembrance Project and a Kindness Project in conjunction with our walk.
Our Kindness Project will be collecting supplies for Child Life at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU. Child Life's goal is to: "ease the emotional stress of a serious medical condition. Child life specialists provide the smiles and support to help children and their families cope. They ease their young patients' adjustment to unfamiliar hospital surroundings through playful activities and celebrations that make everyone more relaxed and comfortable."
Needed items include: Lego & Duplo sets, Hasbro Playdoh, arts & crafts kits, Crayola markers & crayons, stuffed animals, cars & trucks, books, soft blankets, clothing ages birth-18 yrs, baby toys, teethers & rattles, multicultural action figures, Barbies & dolls, popular character toys, coloring books, sticker books, word searches, interactive toys for babies & toddlers, board games, footballs, soccer balls, etc., make-up kits, nail polish, DVDs (G-PG13) and gift cards. Child Life is unable to accept religious items, violent toys or scary movies. They are also unable to accept dollar store items due to numerous safety recalls.
Please join the Kindness revolution!
