Mission Statement

Our mission is heartfelt-to provide smiles to chldren with life changing illnesses and to make them feel special. Our goal is to bring joy into a hospital life that often seems joyless. Because of the disease they are fighting, these kids are often thrust into a world where they have lost their sense of choice. They have no choice as to their illness, their treatment, their medication, their schooling, their hospital stays, their tests, their lab results, and even their diets. But for a few minutes, they can make a choice for themselves. They can choose a bright pillowcase for their pillow. It may only seem like a pillowcase to us. But it's a statement to many of them!

Description

We make bright cheery pillowcases for children with life changing illnesses. Our chapter delivers pillowcases every month to Brenner Children's Hospital and Ronald McDonald House in Winston Salem, NC and to Carillion Clinic Children's Hospital on an as needed basis.
