Hello everyone! Christmas and New Year's is coming up fast! That means Miranda's Smile is beginning our annual drive for two special holiday events Miranda's Smile does for PSHCH Pediatric Oncology unit. We have our annual Christmas-in-a-Bag event and New-Years-Eve-Party-In-A-Bag event. These events are near and dear to our hearts and we have done these events since the first holiday season after Miranda passed away, the holiday season of 2009. Miranda had to go back into the hospital the day after Christmas 2008 and was there over New Years Eve and there until she passed on January 30, 2009. Being in the hospital on special holidays is even more difficult for these kids and their families. They love these bags. It cheers them up, brings them smiles and smiles to their siblings and parents.
The Christmas bags: The foundation prepares aproximately a dozen very large bags which include a $100 Visa gift card, miniature christmas tree, lights, decorations, treats, santa hat, stocking, gifts, holiday decor, fun things and lots more. These bags are delivered by us on Christmas Eve to the children that have to be in the hospital on Christmas Eve/Christmas Morning.
The New Years Eve Bags: The foundation prepares approximately a dozen very large bags which include a $100 gift card along with all the fixins for a New Years Eve party. hats, noisemakers, decorations, snacks, gifts, fun things and more. These bags are delivered by us on New Years Eve to the children that have to be in the hospital on New Years Eve.
Both of these events are for any child that has to be on the pediatric oncology unit at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital no matter their age. These two events are not just for teens.
