Boredom Buster Packs for Sick Kids


SAM_0916_edit
With just $25 you can make the day of a child with Cystic Fibrosis – Joey & Lee did and we think the smiles were absolutely worth it. Donate Now

Sick kids with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) can spend weeks in hospital at a time. It’s a place that can be scary, worrying and boring for a little person. A Hospital Survival Pack is filled with craft activities, puzzle books and high calorie snacks to help pass the time and brighten their days. We like to think of them as Boredom Buster Packs!

Sadly, this year Cystic Fibrosis WA has been unable to find a grant to cover the cost. The good news is, if we can raise just $2,000 we can buy enough packs for a whole year! Each pack costs about $25 and makes a big difference to our kids. Please help by making a donation, it’s guaranteed to put a smile on someone’s face!

The response has been wonderful and Cystic Fibrosis Western Australia has raised $650 of our $2000 target already! This means they can afford to put together 26 packs for the kids.

Last week Gillian and Sarah (from Cystic Fibrosis WA) went to Princess Margaret Hospital to give out some of the survival packs they were able to buy. One of the kids they visited was a little boy called Joel who’s 12 years old. Joel is in an out of hospital every three months and is admitted for weeks at a time.

When they arrived, Joel had already been in hospital for 2 weeks and still had another week to go. As you can imagine, he and his mum were pretty happy to see Gillian & Sarah!  They handed over the pack and he was very obliging when we asked if he’d pose with a few of the items so we could send us a picture to say thank you to the donors – what a cutie!

It means the world to us that we can put a smile on their face and give them a bit of a distraction while they are in hospital. You too can make a difference just by clicking here and donating a Boredom Buster Pack for these kids fighting their boredom and illness in hospital.

Cystic Fibrosis Western Australia:

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a common life threatening recessive genetic condition which mainly affects the lungs and digestive system. People with CF often need to take up to 40 tablets per day, maintain daily physio and visit the hospital on a regular basis in order to stay as healthy as possible. Money raised will help Cystic Fibrosis WA to provide essential services for people who are living with CF and to deliver funding for critical research projects. Please help us to achieve our vision of “lives unaffected by CF”
