Brightening The Lives Of Children In The Hospital
Any amount of time spent at the hospital can be a stressful time. It's usually a time when we are at our most vulnerable. That's why we started our non-profit charity organization, Kidzz Helping Kidzz.
Research shows that brightening the lives of children at the bedside can decrease the need for sedation during procedures, reduce emotional distress, and help children get better faster.
Receiving toys also helps to develop trusting relationships with medical professionals.
If you received one of our Kidzz Helping Kidzz toys at the hospital, we encourage you to share your story below, telling us how receiving one of our donated toys helped you or a loved one feel better about your stay at the hospital.
You are not alone.
Read through other people's experience of how receiving one of our Kidzz Helping Kidzz toys while in the hospital had helped them through a difficult time too, and again please also share your story below, thank you!
Prior to my daughter's diagnosis, she was going through a challenging time visiting multiple doctors, hospital visits, and blood draws for testing.
During one visit at the hospital, she received a toy donated by Kidzz Helping Kidzz and it completely lifted her spirit.
It brought her joy and helped relieve some of the anxiety she was feeling.
During a time when she was scared, not feeling well, and almost every appointment ended in more blood draws for lab work, the toy she received brought an instant smile to her face and helped take her mind off of everything she was going through.
The special memory of receiving a toy at a time when she needed it most helped her look forward to future doctor visits too.
It may sound like such a simple thing, but it made her feel loved and helped her to associate a positive experience with the nurses and doctors.
We are so appreciative and thankful for the donation she received through Kidzz Helping Kidzz.
