After her last stay at the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, 8-year-old Hannah, who was born with Down syndrome and recently diagnosed with leukemia, came up with a heartwarming idea to put a smile on the faces of other children caught up in a hospital bed –
Hannah set out to donate hospital-grade “fun-time” bedding from Playtime Edventures, so young patients can enjoy interactive games with nurses and family during their stay. These sheets will provide an entertaining and educational distraction for children in the care of the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital.
Sabre associates got wind of Hannah’s efforts and decided to take up the cause! This year’s employee barbecue featured a dunk tank, where members of our team volunteered to “take the plunge” to raise money for Hannah’s charity. Watch the video below for all the highlights!
Through the dunk tank donations, along with the generosity of Aubuchon Hardware in Naples, who kindly donated all of the tents and tables for the event, our associates raised $1170. Better yet, Sabre Yachts matched all donations, bringing the grand total to $2340! This lump sum bumped Hannah up to her first goal of $3000.
Though she reached her goal, Hannah wants to keep spreading joy to children at the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. To learn more about Hannah and her mission, you can visit her Facebook page, and we hope you will consider supporting her efforts by donating to her Gofundme page!
