We help pediatric patients act and feel like kids.
Over 3 million children are hospitalized each year in the United States. That means the lives – and childhoods – of 3 million kids are disrupted each year, too. Through creative, recreational, and educational activities delivered in medical settings by trained volunteers, Project Sunshine works to ensure that all children have access to their childhoods regardless of their health conditions.
Patients are empowered. Families are comforted. Volunteers are inspired.
Project Sunshine's programs reach over 150,000 young patients and families
