Dear Friends,     

Thank you for considering a donation to help support the Child Life department in its mission to provide children of all ages with therapeutic and educational play experiences.  We strive to bring a touch of normalcy to the very atypical experience of illness and hospitalization during childhood. 

We have provided this wish list and some guidelines to help guide your selections to something that is meaningful to you as well as supportive of the varying needs of our many patients and families.  Many of the items listed below will be used to support our annual WONDERLAND SHOP where parents and caregivers can shop for free for their children. Other items are to support the many programs the Child Life Department offers to improve the experience of families while hospitalized throughout the year. 

I hope that after browsing our Child Life Wish List, you choose to support the children at All Children’s Hospital in this special way.  Each and every donation of new toys/equipment will be used to directly support the time honored tradition of innovation and creative interventions for our young patients and their families. 

We thank you again for your interest in helping our pediatric patients. I welcome any questions.
