The Sharing Continues


The CaringBridge Share Your Heart contest winner continues to spread love, hope and compassion to those facing a health journey by donating one of her iPad mini prizes.

Last month, Ellen Joyce submitted this entry to the contest:

My daughter’s nonprofit improves the quality of life for children receiving medical treatment in hospitals. She raises money and then donates gift cards and iPads to let the children know others care. If she wins, she will donate one of the iPad minis for hospitalized children to use.

Her entry received the most votes and really captured the spirit of CaringBridge.

Ellen was kind enough to share with us that her daughter, Leanne, recently presented one of the iPad minis to Children’s at Scottish Rite in Atlanta. The iPad mini will be used by a child life specialist as she works with the hospitalized children they serve. It will be used to: educate the teen/child about their upcoming procedure, for distraction and for skyping the teen’s family/friends. Leanne also presented her with a significant number of other items from the hospital’s wish list through her nonprofit Positive Impact for Kids.
