Radio Lollipop is an international charity providing comfort, care, entertainment, and play to children in hospitals. We use interactive radio, crafts, games, and prizes to provide the psychosomatic benefits of distraction and entertainment to children in hospitals. Kids help run the radio program and volunteers visit each room to engage patients and their families with craft activities and play. Radio Lollipop gives young patients a voice and a choice during their stay. While they can´t say "no" to taking their medicine or receiving treatment, they can request their favorite songs, win prizes and hear their voices on the radio.
Radio Lollipop operates in 35 hospitals, in 5 countries, with close to 2,000 volunteers. We have just launched our third US location - New York Presbyterian’s Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital. This is incredibly exciting for us as it will be our largest patient population yet!
