Mary Poppins should take lessons from you

When it comes to helping the medicine go down, you’re better than a spoonful of sugar!

As you know, a visit to the hospital can be nerve wracking—especially for children. How we care for young patients today has lasting impacts on how healthy they are throughout their lives.

Extending huge and heartfelt thanks to Barb Magee, Desjardins Insurance Agent (left), for the thoughtful $500 gift to Child Life made through Desjardin’s employee giving program. Every gift makes even more nurturing care happen.

That’s why your gifts to Child Life are so meaningful. Thanks to you we can provide education and a fun distraction during a child’s treatment. Those little touches help children feel less anxiety and can reduce a child’s fear and pain as well.

Your kindness is magic. Thank you for putting smiles on our young patients’ faces. You can find out more about our professional Child Life program.
