Mount Sinai Hospital 12/21/16
Hai yahh! Our dear friend and former Event Director, Nathan Schreiber, swooped in from Chicago to teach the kids at Mount Sinai Hospital how to draw his Science Ninja characters last night!
Elana Amity hosted our live, call-in TV show and the kids got to draw along with us from the comfort of their hospital beds.
Bellevue Hospital 12/09/16
We were honored to celebrate another year with our beloved kids at Bellevue by making holiday cards together. We are very proud of these children for drawing the many things they are grateful for, even as they feel the difficulty of being away from loved ones during this holiday time.
We got to innovate a little by making window cut outs in the cards, thanks to volunteer, Sangjun Chon’s idea: the kids drew Santa inside chimneys, elves under Christmas trees, and put just the gifts they wanted inside their presents. At the end of the night we gave each child their own sketch book and crayon set so they could continue drawing on their own.
Thank you, kids, for your earnest hard work and for bringing so much warmth to a chilly December evening. Thanks also to our Event Director, Jane Archer, who led our trusty crew of volunteers: Elana Amity, Sergei Aniskov, Sangjun Chon, Dayna Gonzalez, and Elizabeth Winter.
