Proceeds from the Spirit of Children campaign support Golisano Children’s Hospital’s Child Life Program. Child life specialists ensure that life remains as normal as possible for children in health care settings. By providing play, children can approach threatening situations and process information, thoughts, and feelings at their own pace. Since 2007, Spirit Halloween has donated more than $215,000 to our local Child Life program at Golisano Children’s Hospital.
“Play is essential to child development and is the most powerful tool to use in the hospital. Because of donations, we are able to make a child and family smile and laugh during one of the most stressful times in their lives.“
– Kristin Brown, CCLS, Golisano Children’s Hospital
