The Story

One of my daughters has spent lots of time in and out of the hospital due to various serious health concerns. During those days and nights in the hospital, we would often do whatever we could to cheer her up, distract her from all of the bad stuff that was going on, and occupy her with anything we could! Some of the best things that she remembers from the hospital are small gifts and toys that she has been given. She was able to benefit from the Child Life program a few times, and make little crafts, color, or be distracted by the reading of a fun book. We know that there are so many children like her, who spend a lot of time in the hospital, and we want to do something to help their time to be a more positive memory. Usborne books are bright, fun, and engaging, and would help bring some joy into the lives of children at University of Maryland Children's Hospital, through the Child Life program. Please consider donating a gift of any amount, and Usborne Books and More will match your gift at 50%, to help get more books into children's hands!

$30 donation will give 3 children a fun, engaging, lift-a-flap book
$50 donation will give 7 children an interactive sticker book
$100 donation will give 14 children a Shine-a-light flashlight picture book
$200 donation will give 15 children a wind-up book
