Helping the Children
Our project is called “Helping the Children.” Our project idea is to help children in hospitals throughout the Lehigh Valley feel better about their stay in the hospital. We have found an idea called the Teddy Bear Hospital Program that is being used in the UK and Australia. We want to bring that idea here to the Lehigh Valley community. The Teddy Bear Hospital Program would be a program designed to show children mock procedures that will be done to them in the hospital by giving them teddy bears to perform medical procedures on. So far we have contacted a few hospitals to see where we could start on this program, but we have not had the success we need. We will keep trying to contact hospitals and try to find sponsors and create fundraisers so we can find money to support us in establishing this program.
