Help make a child's holiday brighter!
Hi! My name is Madelyn Ferreira.
Last year, as part of my community outreach program for the National American Miss pageant, I organized a toy drive to help children who were too sick to leave the hospital and spend the holiday season with their families. With your help, we were able to deliver 110 teddy bears to Boston Children's Hospital. I'd like to ask for your help again this year.
Each year, nearly 25,000 children are admitted to Boston Children’s Hospital and treated for illnesses such as cancer, blood diseases and heart defects. This holiday season, I would like to give every child who has to spend his or her holiday in the hospital a plush toy to hug. But I need your help.
Hospital staff explained that to reduce the risk of infection, donations must be new, hypo-allergenic, washable, and sealed in plastic upon delivery. That is why I chose Marble the Monkey by Avon. Marble is adorable and made of ultra-soft polyester plush. He meets all of the hospital’s requirements and is only $20. Each plush toy you purchase is donated in your name to a child admitted to the hospital during the holiday season. Please help make a sick child’s holiday brighter by donating one or more of these toys to Boston Children’s Hospital.
