The Humanity Project loves all our sponsors and community partners. They make our work possible because we don’t charge for our programs. So we’re very pleased to announce that highly respected Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital has renewed their sponsorship of the Humanity Project for 2012. We’ve been working on the same team with the good folks at JDCH for a year now. And with each exposure to their efforts, we’re increasingly impressed. That’s because JDCH is more than just a place where sick or injured children get conventional medical treatment. The hospital is a free-standing facility that creates a warm, friendly environment for kids. But more than that, they believe in the healing power of emotions, of the mind. So JDCH provides children with their very own clown, Lotsy Dotsy, and a program called the Power of Play to raise their spirits and aid recovery. Plus Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital holds quarterly open houses for the community, fun events that include the Humanity Project’s anti-bullying table. We’ve spoken to hundreds of parents and kids at these open houses, talking about bullying and how to cope with specific bullying situations. We also hand out candy to the kids and gift certificates to Boomers amusement park right along with our anti-bullying materials for the grown-ups. The Humanity Project has provided our acclaimed Anti-bullying Through The Arts program to JDCH summer camps and welcomed JDCH officials on our podcasts. We are partners with this organization because JDCH cares about helping children be well, and stay well. For more information, go to the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital website at http://www.jdch.com/. Or look for them among our top sponsors and community partners on this website. Thank you, JDCH, for supporting the Humanity Project and our own work to make better lives for kids. We’re a good team!
