Shriners Hospital for Children®- Northern California teams up with ‘My Wings’ of Sweden to give wings of upliftment and hope to young patients while assisting their recovery.
“My Wings”, a Swedish based start-up with roots in Sacramento, California, has created a unique shirt with built-in wings to give children the feeling of freedom to soar in life. They have been designed to stimulate fantasies in a child’s mind and a sense of empowerment. “My Wings” recently announced the launch of their innovative “Giving Wings” Children’s Charity program. Their new approach at helping improve and foster healing in children with special needs and/or going through traumatic experiences is nothing short of a new paradigm in children’s health care. Sometimes all it takes to change lives for the better is an innovative approach, and Lee Giove, Founder of “My Wings”, clearly is helping to give these children a sense of hope. Shriners Hospital for Children®-Northern California and “Pay It Forward Sweden” have joined forces to bolster this charity program and give their patients these specially designed wing shirts to uplift and assist in their healing and recovery. Lee Giove has been self-funding this entire children’s charity startup, and has invested thousands of dollars up to this point. Lee has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to help fund his “Giving Wings” children’s charity so that it can be shared all around the globe. The campaign is live now and runs through April 29, 2016.
Discussing the importance of this philanthropy program, the Manager of Therapeutic Recreation/Child Life Program at Shriners Hospital For Children® Melissa Grialou stated, "We will be offering kids their 'wings' once they 'graduate' from the acute care stage, meaning when they are sent to our outpatient therapy program or when they are discharged home. These are some of the most meaningful moments in the recovery process, and we want to celebrate all they have been through and accomplished by giving them their “wings” to fly freely into the world again!"
