52 Weeks of Giving - Week 15 - Donation to Gillette's Children's Hospital

The girls surprised me this week and did something on their own while I was paying for some items at a local store.  They went over to a rather tall container, opened their wallets, and made a donation to Gillette's Children's Hospital.

They could choose to put their coins in from a variety of different entry points.  Each coin traveled on a different path through obstacles, turns, slides, and other features.  The girls, needless to say, were entertained. 

All the coins that are donated remain in Minnesota, and benefit Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare which provides specialized health care for people who have short-term or long-term disabilities that began during childhood. They help children, adults, and their families improve their health, achieve greater well-being, and enjoy life.

The hospital is located in St. Paul, Minnesota, and has clinics in Duluth, Burnsville, Maple Grove, Minnetonka, and services for adult patients at our St.Paul - Phalen Clinic. Gillette is internationally renowned for a level of pediatric expertise that distinguishes them from many health care organizations.
