Light the Way

Team AMN Healthcare

Thanks for visiting AMN Healthcare's Virtual Toy Drive page!

The kids at Rady Children’s are used to hearing “No” because their healing requires it, but in this pandemic environment they’re hearing it a little bit more. AMN Healthcare is joining the San Diego community this holiday season to Tell Them Yes:

Yes, you can do hard things.
Yes, there are still things to celebrate.
Yes, you do deserve to be just a kid again.

To do this, we've created a Light the Way fundraising page to raise money for the Toy Fund at Rady Children's Hospital. This special fund enables medical staff to give patients exactly what's on their wish list this holiday season! Gifts will be customized for each child, but here is an idea of the impact your donation can have:

  • $5 can provide coloring books and crayons for a patient and their sibling to enjoy together for some much-needed quality time at the hospital
  • When a young patient is getting ready for an upcoming procedure, a Child Life Specialist will use a specially designed doll to explain each step. This tool costs $10 to help reduce a child's fear of the unknown
  • The Nite-Nite Cart, which visits patients' rooms around bedtime, offers blankets, socks, lavender lotion, bedtime books, coffee and tea; $50 can keep this cart fully stocked for a month
  • $100 can purchase a red wagon for patients to ride through the hallways instead of using a wheelchair
  • Friday bingo games are enjoyed by patients and their siblings in the Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders; $250 covers the cost of a year's worth of prizes and materials

The donation process is fast, easy and secure, and you can be sure that it will benefit a great cause.

Thank you for supporting AMN Healthcare's Virtual Toy Drive for the kids!
