The Hugs and Hope Foundation for sick Children is a U.S.-based tax-exempt nonprofit charity serving seriously ill, injured, or handicapped children. The organization's web site features photographs and descriptions of these children and calls for visitors to send "happy mail" in the form of cards, letters, emails, or small gifts. The charity has an explicitly Christian orientation.
On the Hugs and Hope web site (www.hugsandhope.org) you can read stories and view photos of kids who need a little extra TLC to help them get through surgeries, hospitalizations, and endless medical tests. Visitors to the site are asked to mail cheery cards and small gifts to each sick child and notes of encouragement to the parents. The web site will inspire you to help critically ill children and their families not just on Make a Difference Day, but every day.
