Celebration Boxes For Kapi’olani

The staff at Kapiolani Hospital guestimate that 50 children celebrate their birthday in the Hospital each year. Kids who are hospitalized on their birthday, typically kids with long term illnesses like Cancer, may not have fancy decorations or any other fun stuff to accessorize their celebration. This is not a way for a kid to feel the hope of recovery. If we put together boxes with party supplies then the kids can have a real birthday party in the hospital. The Celebration boxes may also be used for celebrating other milestones as well; things like a final Chemo treatment, an especially rough week of treatment being over, or just a need for a little sunshine in their day. Below you will find a list of suggestions. We suggest that each girl puts at least one box together. If you find good deals feel free to put together as many as you would like or let each sibling put one together for a kid their own age, or recruit aunties, uncles and cousins to put one together too.
 It is totally up to you. In a plastic shoe box size storage container put any of the following:
 8 plates (new in package)
8 cups (new in package)
Party blowers (new in package)
Party favors
 Banners
 Table cloths
 8 Napkins (new in Package)
Decorations
 Crowns
Necklaces
 Small gift item (coloring book and crayons or hot wheels car, mini lego set, etc.)
Birthday card from your child
 Hats
