We just received the Child’s Play donation and we can’t stop jumping up and down with joy! Oh my goodness!! This is unbelievable! We always hear other Child Life programs talking about all the amazing apps for preparation, distraction, and fun they have downloaded on their iPads. We just sort of ignore them as we know our department could never afford one. Now we have 12 iPads!! And with the numerous gift cards, we’ll be able to download so many apps, movies, and songs to use with patients.
Same goes for the iPod Touch too. And the Xbox Kinects! They are going to be an incredible motivation for patients who need to get out of bed and move around after surgery. And so many wonderful movies. We cannot even begin to say thank you enough times to truly let you know how grateful and appreciative we are for the very generous gifts. Wow!! You all are amazing : )
Thank you and thank you again! And have a wonderful day!
