Lemons to Aid Launches Pediatric Kit

Kids Create “Thinking of You” Cards While Visiting the Doctor

Dallas, TX (Vocus) -- When a child doesn’t feel good, sometimes even the best toys in the doctor’s office can’t make them feel any better.

This is a lesson we can teach our children – not only to give, but to find that part of ourselves to share with others, no matter how we feel.”

Logistically, each participating doctor’s office makes a $50 donation to Lemons to Aid, www.lemonstoaid.org and in return will receive a kit for the waiting room. Once cards have been decorated, the pediatrician’s office will then deliver the cards to the local hospital affiliated with the practice to share with the sick children who are hospitalized.
