My name is Bailly Lockhart.  I work for a children's book company and one of my biggest passions is getting books in the hands of children.  I believe books have the power to inspire and provide comfort during a time of need. 

The Barbara Bush Children's Hospital's Child Life services help to make patients at the hospital feel supported during their stay not only during medical procedures but also for the daily activities that children may be missing on their stay at the hospital.  I have a goal of raising $500 to purchase Cuddle Bear books to donate to the hospital.  These books will be given to patients during their stay to offer a little extra comfort with this story of Cuddle Bear who gives hugs to friends in need. 

Read below to see a first hand account from a friend of mine whose daughter was a patient at the hospital. 

"Amelia was inpatient at Barbara Bush Children's Hospital from the end of December 2017 to the end of April 2018 with a couple small breaks at home in between chemo rounds.  The child life specialists at BBCH are amazing.  They not only come in and play with the kids every day, but they are there for support during medical procedures also.  Child Life came in the room for Amelia's weekly dressing changes, when she needed a NG tube placed and also when she needed to have her central line repaired.  Child life helps these kids feel normal!  By the time Amelia had finished her time at BBCH the Child Life specialist became her favorite person!"

Would you like to help put a comforting book in the hands of a child at the BBCH?  All money donated will be used for the purchase of Cuddle Bear books. With your help, we can put happy smiles on the faces of these very brave children as they receive the treatment they need.
