Heidi Culbertson from The Harris Law Firm teamed with the Bags of Fun staff members and a team of volunteers from Northwestern Mutual last week to fill and deliver personalized backpacks with toys and games for the kids at Children’s Hospital. The children and their families were delighted with the organization’s thoughtfulness when choosing the contents of the bag, and they were all eager to play.
What’s in a Bag?
Bags of Fun are filled with educational, interactive and silly toys that give a child joy, laughter and relief from the stress and anxiety of their treatments. Bags are carefully crafted for each child, taking into consideration the best means to lift their spirits and harness the power of play. Bags of Fun says: “If we give kids the tools to play when they feel at their worst, play will reduce their stress, increase their will and build the confidence they need to fight.”
Bags of Fun is a charitable organization that was initiated in Denver, Colorado and has also open several new locations in other states.
