Play with Heart
February 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
In recognition of February being National Heart Month we are collaborating with GiGi’s and Mended Little Hearts. We are hosting a playdate and giving event, just in time for Valentine’s Day!
In a joint effort, we will collect and bag essential items for the Mended Little Hearts Bravery Bag Program.
‘A Bravery Bag is a bag given to families in the hospital after their child has had heart surgery or other heart procedures. When a child needs a heart surgery or procedure, the whole family has to be very brave- the child himself/herself, the parents or caregivers, and any siblings. The Bravery Bag helps the family have courage and strength through this time of crisis and to know they are not alone.’
‘Mended Little Hearts gives bags to over 5,500 families, but we believe that all families should receive a bag to help them through this difficult and sometimes devastating time. With your help and support, we can give bags to 100% of kids and families in the hospital after heart surgeries and procedures.’
Purpose: Children will pack Bravery Bags with essential items to be given to Herma Heart Center families at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
Impact: Children will see that they are capable of showing love and empathy to others going through a difficult time.
Your child will be able to participate in valentine’s songs, listen to a heartfelt valentine’s story and reflect on the giving attribute of love, create a valentine card and pack Bravery Bag items.
Your child will see that donating/contributing an essential item (such as toothbrushes, toothpastes, floss, hand sanitizer, chapsticks, snacks, etc.) creates a whole Bravery Bag for a family at Children’s Hospital.
