Lights For Little Angels
Plans are being set for a world record setting event.
*Details for this world record event coming soon!
The concept which fuels Lights for Little Angels actually began in 1996 right here in Brecksville. It was Christmas time, and just three streets were lined with traditional luminaries—a simple candle in a bag. The visual effect when the sun went down was stunning, and there was encouragement from many to consider doing an entire city. Over time, this thought manifested into our main event, and eventually into our organization today.
About the Cause
Each hospital's Child Life program maintains a unique wish list featuring much-needed items such as cheerful coloring books and crayons, creative craft supplies, and mind-challenging games. These are the tools used by Child Life specialists each day to help fulfill their mission of comforting children, teens, and their families during an often stressful and frightening time in their lives. Proceeds from Lights for Little Angels will be divided evenly among the five hospitals and used to purchase the supplies needed to continue helping these children.
Our goal for the world record event is to raise a minimum of $35,000 for Child Life and to bolster these traditionally underfunded departments. The event also strives to bring to light the positive difference that Child Life specialists make in a child's hospital experience. Ultimately, we wish to inspire and organize similar events around the country.
