Interested in using your artistic abilities to brighten a patient's day? Then this is the perfect volunteer opportunity for you! Whether you prefer hand making cards or using a digital platform to design them, you will be making an impact on the lives of kids with cancer.
Kids with cancer spend majority of their lives fighting a horrible disease, exuding bravery no adult could match. Consistent and extensive hospital stays are usual, and cards go a long way in bringing c heer and offering a distraction to kids with cancer and their families who are staying in the hospital.
*Service hours will be rewarded
