Welcome to new volunteers who are willing to give their time, energy and talents to bring smiles to hospitalized children by working on their own at home.
We very much appreciate cards of encouragement, created for our hospitalized kids, as well as craft kits, which we send to hospitals by the box in addition to including them in our Bags of Smiles for long-term patients and our Coping Kits (scaled-down Bags of Smiles) for emergency rooms and overnight outpatients.
The instructions for these can be found on our website, www.caitlins-smiles.org by following the "kits" tab on our home page. At times, instructions can also be found on our Facebook site.
Volunteers making donations of or conducting drives to collect items including crayons, colored pencils, markers, spiral-bound notebooks, medium and large cans of Play-Doh and coloring/activity books are also appreciated. Our "Wish List" is updated often on Facebook.
Catie's Wish Foundation
Catie's Wish Foundation raises money to each year to support the costs at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital on Catie's birthday, April 23. While Catie battled cancer, she had hundreds of children praying with her and even more followed the selfless example she gave while making sacrifices to help children like her battle pediatric cancer.
Ryan's Case for Smiles
Help children and families cope with the traumatic stress of illness and injuries by donating your time. The secret to our success is the strength of the thousands of volunteers around the world giving their time to help kids feel better to heal better. SEW A PILLOWCASE. We can’t get enough bright, cheery pillowcases. It is easy to do and only takes a few minutes.
If you have other talents, we are always looking for help beyond sewing, such as graphic design, fundraising assistance and more.
