Send a free Valentine’s Day message to sick children at these hospitals


When it comes to Valentine’s Day, chances are you either love it or hate it. But even if you’re not a fan of Cupid, you have to admit that if someone hands you a Valentine’s Day card, it can’t help but brighten your day.

With that in mind, children’s hospitals around the country are holding “Valentine Drives” and asking people to send virtual valentines to the little patients in their care. It takes less than a minute and is free. All you have to do is choose a participating hospital(s) via your computer, mobile device or tablet and then choose a card to send. Write your own Valentine message or choose a pre-written one — the choice is yours and either one is sure to put a smile on a child’s face.

You don’t even have to live near one of the hospitals to send a card, so feel free to choose one that’s near your home or far away. Or if you’re really in the Valentine’s Day spirit, send a card to all the hospitals on the list. Just click on the hospital name below to make and send your free Valentine:

Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago (Illinois)

Boston Children’s Hospital Trust (Massachusetts)

Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (California)

Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital (Texas, requires a donation)

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital (Ohio)

Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation (Arizona)

St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital (national)

Texas Children’s Hospital (Texas)

As another bonus, for each card sent to a child at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles by Feb. 12, $1 will be donated to the hospital’s Children’s Fund — up to $25,000.

Of course, if you’d like to go the extra mile for these heroic kiddos, you can always follow up your Valentine’s Day messages of love and encouragement with a monetary donation to the children’s health facility of your choice.

Will you be sending a Valentine’s Day card to a children’s hospital this holiday?
