Shriners Hospitals for Children Photographs Selected for National Children’s Hospitals Exhibit

Two photographs taken at two different Shriners Hospitals for Children were selected for inclusion in the 2017 Children’s Hospitals Photo Exhibit, a national competition presented by HUGGIES® and administered by the Children’s Hospital Association (CHA). The judges selected “A typical day in the clinic” taken by John Sugden at the Shriners Hospital in Boston and “Catalina undergoing testing in the motion analysis laboratory” taken by Julia Serat at the Northern California Shriners Hospital. The CHA exhibit communicates the hope, compassion and resilience shared by the children and families served by children’s hospitals and the expert health care providers who deliver that specialized care. From healthy kids to children with rare and complex medical conditions, the exhibit celebrates children’s hospitals’ commitment to the health of all children. The two Shriners Hospitals for Children photographs were chosen from more than 180 photographs submitted by 40 children’s hospitals across the country by a distinguished panel of judges representing Parents magazine, The Exposure Group, National Geographic Kids, Positive Exposure, and the Children’s Hospitals Today editorial advisory group. Photographs were selected based on excellent composition and ability to depict what really makes children’s hospitals unique. The Children’s Hospitals Photo Exhibit will be on display to the general public the week of July 10, 2017 in the rotunda of the Russell Senate Building and in the foyer of the Rayburn House Building in Washington, D.C. July 17 and 18, 2017. In addition the exhibit will travel around the country for two years displaying at children’s hospitals and partnering organizations in support of a wide variety of outreach efforts and events. Visit the Children’s Hospital Association website to view the 2017 exhibit. Below is John Sugden’s photo: A typical day in the clinic A typical day in the clinic

Spirit of Halloween Stores' Spirit of Children

Making Hospitals Less Scary
Spirit of Children is a program that brings fun and funding to hospitals at Halloween and all year long through support of Child Life at hospitals in local communities. Our mission is to make hospital stays less scary for kids and their families. The program started in 2006 with eleven hospitals in our own backyard with the belief that a great holiday should do great good. And it worked! Since that first Halloween party in 2006, we have raised more than $29 million in cash and merchandise donations and have partnered with over 130 children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada. Every dollar collected goes directly to the hospitals and local donations stay local.

Shriners Hospitals for Children—Philadelphia along with 12 other Shriners Hospitals benefits from this amazing program. Keep Spirit Halloween in mind during your Halloween shopping season. Below is a coupon for 10% off - in addition, 10% will be donated to the Hospitals!
