YOU CAN'T QUARANTINE KINDNESS

 

We’re Better Together

Five weeks in to the new normal of social distancing we are learning to not take for granted, 1) Hugs with grandparents; 2) Coffee with friends; 3) Full shelves at the store; 4) The morning rush to school; or 5) A handshake with a neighbor. Instead, quarantine is highlighting that although physically apart from each other, we still can achieve more together and that you can't quarantine kindness. This universal truth is clear at Coastal Kids where…

 

·        A creative volunteer shifted her production of adorable plush dolls to beautiful cloth masks.

·        Business partners search their shelves for N95 masks, gloves and cleaning supplies.

·        Foundations provide generous funding for new computers and software for Telehealth.

·        Families reach out to donate diapers, formula and other essential medical supplies.  

·        Social workers deliver basic necessities and grocery gift cards to families in need.

·        AND nurses continue to offer critical medical care to children living with serious-illness.

 

Compassionate staff, volunteers, donors and friends of the organization are showing us daily that… You Can’t Quarantine Kindness. This phrase captures the hopeful, caring and kind-hearted ways our Coastal Kids family and the whole community is coming together during these challenging times. To honor their generosity we are creating a new t-shirt campaign:

 

YOU CAN'T QUARANTINE KINDNESS

 

Artists from 0-21 submitted original artwork for the chance to be featured on one of our t-shirts.  They received two free shirts--one for themselves and one for someone of their choosing (i.e. Coastal Kids nurse, your favorite mail carrier, a hardworking teacher, mom).  The winners were:

 

We want to say THANK YOU to all of our contestants for sharing their stories of kindness in quarantine with Coastal Kids Home Care. Your artistic talents will bring compassionate medical care to kids all in the comfort of home.
