Bags of Joy by Charlotte Crosby

Fundraising Goal $1,500.00

My Message

Hi, my name is Charlotte Crosby and I have a passion for helping people any way I can.

When I was 10 years old, my grandad died from cancer. I was devastated and upset for a long time. I noticed while visiting him in hospital that he did not have a lot to do. No one to keep him company when we weren’t there or to help him pass the time.

I’m sure some of you have also experienced what it’s like to be sick or lose someone you love, like I loved my grandad and I wanted to use my experience to create something good for others. That’s when I came up with the idea for my charity, Bags of Joy. Bags filled with joy and happiness for children who are spending time in hospital.

I am now lucky enough to be working with the team at the Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Play Therapists in the Women’s and Children’s Hospital to bring my Bags of Joy into the wards to entertain, distract and help to make the time spent in hospital feel a little better.

If you would like to help me continue to provide my Bags of Joy to children in hospital, please make a donation. The funds raised will go into creating my tailored Bags of Joy for children of a range of ages and provide them with fun activities while they are staying in hospital.

Each Bag of Joy is individually hand-packed by me and includes anything from toys, teddies and dolls to activity books and art supplies. I will work with the Play Therapy team to choose what is needed for each child so they have the best Bag of Joy to suit their needs, likes and distract them.

If you would prefer to donate toys, arts supplies or other tools of distraction for my Bags of Joy, you can also donate these via the WCH Foundation office. Please note all donated items must be new/unopened and in good condition.

Thank you so much for supporting Bags of Joy and the children of the Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
