Client News: OSF Healthcare Holiday Cards to Benefit Children's Hospital of Illinois

By: Carin L Thumm, MFA
After Thanksgiving is over, the focus shifts to thoughts of holidays in December. There's shopping to be done. Meals to be cooked. Sweets to be baked. Packages to be wrapped. Friends and family to see. And cards to be mailed.

Put another way - there's a lot going on preceded whatever holiday you and yours celebrate.  One simple way to share in the holiday spirit and brighten a child's life is to purchase cards that are made by children where the proceeds go towards helping children.
If you haven't already, when you pick your holiday cards please consider visiting OSF Healthcare Systems and check out this year's holiday card contestant winners.  All the proceeds from card purchases go to the Children's Hospital of Illinois - and as Brooks Bankord, a contestant winner and a former children's hospital patient, said "I really wanted to give back to the place that gave me a chance at life, and it would be awesome for other kids to get that chance too."
