Making Spirits Bright Holiday Giving Catalog Launches with Feel Good Gifts for Everyone
The countdown is on to the holidays, but there’s still time to find a meaningful gift for everyone on your list. Give a gift that really matters this season by shopping the Making Spirits Bright Holiday Giving Catalog at pattisonchildrens.ca. Launched on Giving Tuesday on November 29, this year’s catalogue items includes craft and art supplies for kids in pediatrics, toys and teaching tools. It also features shares in fetal heart monitors and no-poke respiratory support equipment for the provincial Pediatric Transport Team, which sees over 300 trips per year.
“Giving a gift from the Making Spirits Bright Holiday Giving Catalog is a truly meaningful way to make a difference for kids and families in hospital,” says Brynn Boback-Lane, President and CEO of the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan. “These gifts will help make the holidays a little brighter but also support children and families year-round.”
With the help of hundreds of donors across Saskatchewan like you last year, over $40,000 was raised for the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan’s Making Spirits Bright holiday campaign. Donations helped purchase infant warmers, art supplies, toys, and rocking chairs for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The impact of those gifts is keenly felt by children and families in hospital.
“Without the assistance of this incredible program, our patients would have much less. An incredible thank you goes out to all involved for recognizing the importance of honouring emotional care and the true importance of play and its connection to healing for kiddos recovering in the hospital,” explains Tegan Webber, Child Life Specialist at Regina General Hospital. “At the end of the day, we want children to have a positive memory of the hospital in case they may need to come back as a child or adult in the future.”
The 3rd annual holiday giving campaign runs throughout the month of December with 100% of your gift staying in Saskatchewan to help kids right here at home. All gifts come with a free customizable e-card. Shop the gift catalog today: pattisonchildrens.ca.
Year-round gift giving is also available online for special occasions and events including Valentine’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day.
