Happiness for Health provides sick and injured children with toys, stuffed animals, games and parties to make a difficult, and sometimes frightening, hospital stay more bearable. The goal is to serve the emotional needs of the young patients by providing items that give the patient comfort and support such as teddy bears, games and birthday parties.

This endowment fund was created in 2001 by Professor Douglas E. Abrams with the royalties from his book, Children and the Law-Doctrine: Policy and Practice. A contribution to this program will make an immediate and lasting difference in the lives of sick and injured children. Help turn a child’s day into a happy memory.

How can you help?

You can help by donating items for kids, such as games, toys, stuffed animals, birthday balloons, party hats, birthday plates and napkins. We will gladly accept donations that will make a child’s day brighter and happier!
