"Finally, a chance to give back to the hospital that gave a
gift to you, and tens of thousands of others!"
So many people have asked "How can I give back to
Children's Hospital in Columbus Ohio? They gave me back my son's life..."
Here is the opportunity for you to give, and
receive something in return. Nationwide Children's
Hospital has helped tens of thousands of children suffering with
Cancer, a severed finger, head wounds or concussion, heart problems or brain injuries and more than can be
mentioned here. Parents from all over the world have come to this magnificent facility to give their children, and
family, the best care available.
event has been approved by Nationwide Children's Hospital.
Here is the story: My mother,
bless her soul, was carried away in the 1990's by one of the greatest movements of stuffed toy marketing:
Beanie Babies. I won't say how much she spent on these original Beanies, but it was a significant
amount. When she moved out of her large house to a much smaller one, these 1,100 stuffed animals needed a home.
That's where I came in. I was given over 1,100 sharks, bears, elephants, snakes, Santas, and so on . .
I had no clue what to do with
them! As you know, the bottom fell out of the Beanie Baby market and
to get one company to purchase first and second generation Beanies, well, to say the least: There weren't any!!!
This past year, my own 2.5 year old daughter was
a victim of a terrible assault from her baby sitter, biting her on the face while under the influence of
medication. Never had we seen such a thing from someone who was responsible for protecting our child. Needless to
say, we took her to Children's Hospital in Columbus Ohio. The staff, psychologists, nurses, assistants, doctors,
and surgeons had her best interest in mind and the whole time, made sure we also were being comforted and
Of course, if you knew our daughter, you would
also know it was SHE who often made the doctors
smile. Well, after we got through the arrests, court case and
judgment, my wife and I wanted to give back in some way. I thought about the Beanie Babies and realized how they
could become of great value once again. So, I contacted Nationwide Children's Hospital's charity
department who, after reading my proposal, gave me approval to estabilish this
Gift Giving Charity.
