#TweetTheLove – Brighten a Child’s Day

By , January 3rd, 2013 | News | 8 Comments

For children in the hospital, support from others often makes it easier to get through their stay and back to playing with friends. Sometimes, simply hearing words of encouragement can make them smile.

Join us this month as we #TweetTheLove to show our youngest patients how much their community cares for them. Throughout the month, we’ll introduce you to some of our patients, like 4-year old Damian who is battling leukemia, and ask you to send them positive messages. Send @RenownScribbles your tweets with the hashtag #TweetTheLove and we’ll share your note with those in need of a smile.

You can send in hopeful wishes, corny jokes, uplifting quotes… anything that might help them laugh and smile. Just remember to include #TweetTheLove so we can find your messages.

Be sure to follow us on Twitter to see everyone’s uplifting messages and help us brighten a child’s day.

    Hey Damian! I just want you to know that you are a fighter and you inspire those much older than you to be fighters as well! Don’t give up and know that all the way in chilly Minnesota there are people cheering for you! Keep fighting the good fight! #TweetTheLove
