Emily's Heart Donations for Advocate Children's Hospital
Posted on December 20 2017
Our partnership with Emily's Heart and Advocate Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn, IL, is providing a way for friends of Emily's Heart to donate Mended Heart Bears to other "heart kids" at the hospital this holiday season.
The original goal of 50 bears was reached quickly, and a new donation goal was created by Emily's Heart...to provide a Mended Heart Bear to each child undergoing open-heart surgery at Advocate Children's Hospital in 2018. They would need about 500 bears donated.
Already, the friends of Emily's Heart have donated over 290 bears! The first set of donated bears will be handed-out to the kids at the hospital next week. We are looking forward to hearing more about the big event!
