Our core service is our team of professional entertainers including fairies, singers, musicians, magicians, poets, face-painters, therapy dogs and children’s characters who make regular, scheduled visits across all our hospital partners and entertain between 800 and 1,000 seriously ill children at their bedsides every month. In addition, we provide multiple art projects through our workshops and activities for children to enjoy.
