The First Year (June 2006-June 2007) And Continuing Today To Deliver 
These Experiences / Events As Well As So Much More...

Established collaborative relationships with Children's Hospital Oakland, Stanford-Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, The University California San Francisco-Children's Hospital, the Golden State Warriors (professional basketball team), The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and other organizations.

  • Provided a modified wheelchair desired by one of "all these beautiful children"

  • Established an ongoing partnership with the Golden State Warriors professional basketball organization and the partnership created several experiences for children and their families. This included a Season of Giving event where patient's / families from Children's Hospital Oakland and Stanford-Lucile Packard Children's Hospital enjoyed a Warriors basketball game in a suite, followed by a surprise party in the Warriors owner's room where players and the mascot (Thunder) delivered gifts to the patients and their siblings. (We secured a gift list from the families without the patients knowing it was for this event.)

  • Sent patients and their families into a luxury suite to enjoy the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus; Harlem Globetrotters basketball game; several Golden State Warriors' basketball games, and continuing to do so throughout the basketball season and other events at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA. For some patients we have them sitting on the court next to the visiting team's bench at Warriors' games

  • Provided Thanksgiving dinners for inpatients able to have outside meals and parents or guardians in the hospital with their child (Children's Hospital Oakland and Stanford-Lucile Packard Children's Hospital)

  • Provided customized Disneyland trip for an oncology patient who held the possibility of this experience close to her heart

  • Established a relationship with the Oakland Ice Arena and the partnership sent patients and their families to Holiday "Magic" On Ice performances, followed by a gift giving session that included fun & educational toys provided by LeapFrog

  • Created a Patient Gift Giving Experience for patients to feel the joy that giving brings during the Christmas holiday. From bins of fun, educational, and simply playful toys, patients in the hospital were able to select a gift for each of their siblings. Partnering with Shazzam from McCovey's Restaurant (of Dudum Sports & Entertainment) the overall experience for the children as well as their parents and the medical staff was inviting and uplifting. (Games Unlimited-Danville and LeapFrog-Emeryville significantly contributed.)

  • Provided New Year's baskets (sparkling apple cider, popcorn, "poppers" to ring in the New Year, etc.) to patients, parents, and the medical staff (Children's Hospital Oakland and Stanford-Lucile Packard Children's Hospital)

  • Provided-and continually from January 2007-nutritional packs for immediate delivery to parents of children going into the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Children's Hospital Oakland. (Diablo Foods of Lafayette significantly contributed, and Admac Digital Imaging of Emeryville continues to support us on this effort)

  • Developed more experiences..."Helping Children Be Children"…like San Francisco Ballet, Disney on Ice, Sesame Street Live, San Francisco 49ers professional football, and an array of events at the Oracle Arena-Oakland and other venues are continually provided
