Thank you so much for letting us have this opportunity! The kids were really overwhelmed with the experience of going to the hospital and hearing about the kids and your job as a Child Life Specialist Traci. The students are so proud and excited that they get to help make these children’s lives a little bit better through art. All the way out of the hospital they started coming up with ideas for other ways they can help those kids more. It was inspiring for me as a teacher to realize how much they learned about empathy and how art can influence someone’s life for the better.

I feel grateful that we were able to coordinate the tour, bus and sub for this amazing project. It was a wonderful experience! The students really want to make this an annual project so they can continue to support kids in need.
