The Hansje Brinker Guild was founded by a group of women with a Dutch background living in the Seattle area. The Hansje Brinker Guild supports the Child Life department of Seattle Children's hospital, which "helps ease the fears that children and families face while undergoing treatment for life-threatening diseases or emergencies". Child Life provides a supervised playroom and bedside activities for all patients. The Hansje Brinker Guild is an excellent way for the Dutch and others to contribute to the greater Seattle community.
