We help kids feel good, so they can get well.

Each year, millions of lives are affected by pediatric illness or injury and disrupted by the stress and anxiety it causes. We want all families to know that if your child gets sick, Project Sunshine is there for you.

We partner with medical centers across the United States and in four international locations to meet the non-medical, social-emotional needs of children dealing with illnesses. Project Sunshine promotes key elements of childhood like play, learning, and socialization in the hospital environment – restoring a crucial sense of normalcy for pediatric patients and their families.

While medical experts deliver treatment, we deliver smiles.
Together, we brighten lives.

Project Sunshine recruits and trains volunteers – community members, college students, corporations, and youth – to deliver activities. Our programs spark creativity, promote self-esteem, and provide a needed distraction. Most of all, they let young patients act and feel like kids during emotionally and physically challenging times.
