Two weeks ago a friend of mine posted a request on Facebook for character Band-Aids. She was making this request on behalf of a young boy named Eli who is receiving chemo treatments.
I was completely unaware that nurses, and not the hospital, supply those colorful and fun cartoon Band-Aids that bring a smile to every child’s face.
Sadly hospitals supply just plain, ugly brown Band-Aids.
Y’all it just melted my heart that in the midst of all that he is going through, Eli was thinking of others…
If you’ve ever witnessed a child showing off their superhero or Barbie Band-Aid, you know what a big impact a few Band-Aids can make.
So here’s my challenge for you and the women at your church: collect cartoon Band-Aids at one of your next Women’s Ministry events and donate them to your local children’s hospital.
Please do me a favor – don’t pass a basket for money. It can creates embarrassment for those who truly cannot give.
Just collect the Band-Aids.
Would you do this for Eli and all those other children that need a reason to smile?
I would love to hear if your team decides to take on the Band-Aid Mission Project.
Leave me a note of your location so I can pass the news onto Eli!
