This post is in partnership with Duracell.
For the 2016 Holiday season, Duracell is supporting the healing power of imagination with a donation of one million batteries to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
To support this campaign, Kristin and I had the chance to partner with Duracell to bring batteries and do a gift drop at Lurie's Children's Hospital.
We went shopping for the perfect battery operated toys that kids of all ages would enjoy. Imagination can be the best medicine for kids, mentally, emotionally and physically. This is even more true for kids that are facing health challenges during the holiday season.
The mission Duracell is on is to power imaginations longer, for those who need it the most. As part of this awesome mission, Duracell is supporting Children's Miracle Network Hospitals to improve the hospital stay for young patients through their donation of one million batteries.
All of the TLSF kids were very excited about this project and wanted to get involved. All of their classmates at school created special Holiday cards by hand for us to distribute at Lurie Children's. We headed into the city with both of our oldest girls on Tuesday for the Duracell Holiday gift drop!
We had the chance to meet some of the families that are currently staying in the hospitals, hand out gifts to the patients and their siblings. It was heart warming seeing the children pick out a toy that would be able to brighten their stay and power play.
The experience is part of Duracell's 2016 holiday campaign created in supporting the healing power of imagination. In order to power imagination for more patients, Duracell has donated over 1 million batteries to 146 Children's Miracle Network hospitals nationwide.
It was truly a wonderful experience being able to bring a smile to these kids' faces. We walked away grateful to have such an amazing facility so close to our homes. Giving to Lurie Children's Hospital is like adding to a little insurance policy for all local families. We hope we never need it, but we know it's there if we do.
In order to support Lurie Children's Hospital and over 174,000 patients and families that are treated each year we encourage you to donate online here.
