Spread Sunshine. Brighten Lives.

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.

The Power of Sunshine

We transform hospital environments into kid-friendly spaces to help pediatric patients thrive.

18,000 trained volunteers bring companionship and enrichment activities to over 150,000 pediatric patients and their families in 175 cities across the United States and in Canada, China, Israel, and Kenya.

Our programs encourage family members to participate. We know that when a child is sick, the whole family is affected.
