Pilots for Kids

Help Pilots “Deliver” Smiles to Kids 
Who are Alone in the Hospital 
This Holiday Season!

From now until December 22nd
 Gifts & Virtual Santa Visits
are being delivered! 

Volunteer pilots have a holiday tradition of delivering donated gifts, with a visit from Santa, to the children of Ronald McDonald House through Pilots for Kids. The excitement and joy is electric and heartwarming. The event keeps growing, and 100% of all gifts go directly to the kids. I had the opportunity to visit the kids in Seattle's Children's hospital during a Seattle Pilots for kids event, and there was nothing more gratifying than bringing smiles to the children who are ill. But I simply cannot imagine they are alone due to Covid. 

This year pilots are prohibited from that personal visit. However, heartfelt thanks to Captain Christine Dunning the Portland/Vancouver area Pilots for Kids coordinator who is not allowing COVID to get in her way. She is making the spirits bright despite the challenges. 

Christine said: 

This year each family is restricted to their rooms, so we will bring our Holiday party to them! During the week of Dec 15-22, each room will receive a "North Pole Aviation Adventure" package which includes: A Nasa Activity book, A PFKD's color book, crayons, balsa wood airplanes to build and design, challenges and prizes. In addition, each room receives a holiday tree, and home cooked meal, North Pole themed stuffed animals, and  a five minute virtual visit from Santa, direct from the North Pole! All "PFKD Adventures Week" items and meals will be delivered to each room by the amazing Elf Staff of Ronald McDonald! 

"I Appreciate You All and thank you in advance for your donations, to once again bring Love, Joy and Smiles for these very special Kids and Families during a most Challenging year!!" Christine 

All the best and Merry Christmas 2020!

Tis the Season to bring smiles 
to children of all ages!

None of this comes free. Christine is doing the work, but she needs your support. Imagine if every pilot gave just a little bit of themselves.  If you can help please click the button below.
