Want to help bring home some magic to patients of the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children?

Thanks Scratch! :goodvibes

Although toiletries are the basis of this project, ANY Disney token item will be accepted. Small notebooks, colorful pens, pencils, or anything else that would help a child pass the many long days in a hospital room. Children enjoy items that can be hung, like ornaments and key chains as they hang them from their IV poles as decoration. Disney Princess stickers, Disney markers, character pins and buttons. In addition, clear cellophane bags used to put the toiletries in, and ribbons to tie them together are always welcome. :)

I lived on the Cardiac Unit with dd on and off for three years.....they sure could use a Disney Cheer Up! Just about half the surgeries done at Sick Kids are heart operations. S

I appreciate the offer, anything you feel will help a child pass the time in the hospital is welcome. :)

Is this ongoing? We're not going until December but I'd be happy to bring back some extra small souvenirs for this project.

As of October, DCL is having a new product line. It still has the pictures but look more adult oriented. :confused3

I'll see what I can come up with this weekend.

Thanks Scratch. :)

Interesting - but for my purposes - this is actually a good thing. Teen-type toiletries are hard to come by (other then the GF one's) although the GF one's are more for girls. It would be great if DCL's new ones are appropriate for boys too. :thumbsup2

Here's the pic of the new toiletries.

I think that the boys might be ok with them. :confused3

WOW! Where did you find that pic Scratch?

I see 'H20' on them, does that mean that ~H2O+ will now be doing the DCL toiletries??? If so; very, very cool, there stuff is GREAT!!! :thumbsup2

As for boys, I agree, they should be ok. Too bad that they didn't say the word 'spa' on them though. :rolleyes:

We arn't going till January, but will definetly collect when we are there! My son was diagnosed with cancer 2 years ago this December, and ended up being in hospital for most of December, and anything to help the time pass was greatly appreciated!!! He has been in remission and we have 33 days left of treatment then we are done! :cool1: :cool1: :cool1: :cool1: :cool1:

What a wonderful idea. I spent a lot of time in sick kids growing up. I had open heart surgery done their 26 years ago. I just wanted to give you a pat on the back.

I'll definately bring some back in Jan when we go.
