We hear the song every year during the holidays, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.”
But for many of the children being treated at Rady Children’s Hospital, they won’t be able to be home for the holidays so last night some of the holidays came to them.
It was the “Light the Way” event held at the hospital last night that featured live music, songs, lights and sounds.
Donors and supporters of Rady Children’s Hospital organized and paid for the event and along with first responders, they helped spread some Christmas spirit and cheer to kids and their families who can use it this holiday season.
It’s just one event of several held during the holidays for children who can’t be home for Christmas as they go through the care and treatment they need to get well.
And what better time than during the Christmas season than to touch the lives of kids and to help Rady Children’s do what they do to heal and help so many thousands of kids all year, to give a gift to this amazingly valuable asset in our community.
You can do that by making a monetary donation during our iHeart Rady Children’s Give-a-thon today. Be listening all day for stories about the kids, families and caregivers at Rady Children’s and how you can help.
And remember, there’s no better feeling and no better way to celebrate Christmas than by giving to others, especially when it comes to kids.
