Meg's Smile Foundation went to Duke Children's Hospital in December to donate gift items for their "Christmas Shop". Families that are in the hospital will be able to "shop" for some gifts. MSF also brought the hospital 6 Play Station 4's with 6 extra remotes for the hospital rooms.
Duke is involved in a big campaign to put a PS4 in all the children's hospital rooms.
Currently, most of the rooms have no systems or have ones that are not working well. Having stayed in the hospital so many times with Meg, Jim and Terri knew how big a need this was to the children and families who have to spend days, weeks and even months in the hospital. This will help make their stay just a little better. So glad we can help and be a part of both these programs! This all because of your continued support of Meg's Smile Foundation! Meg's SMile Foundation wishes everyone a happy and safe Holiday Season with lots of smiles!
