The OMG Post
Children’s Hospital Holiday Initiative
Thursday, February 28th, 2013
During the 2012 Christmas season, the OMG Friends partnered with retail shops in Portland, OR for a super fantastic holiday giving initiative. In the end, we were able to donate hundreds of li’l stuffed critters to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
Doernbecher uses the donations they receive during the holiday season throughout the year to comfort the children they work with. These donations do a lot to bring hope and sunshine into their days, which are very important components of healing and recovery.
I was really thrilled to be able to participate in something like this. Thank you to everyone who took part in this awesome Friends Indeed initiative.
A sweet letter I received from the children’s hospital:
