How Open The Joy shares the guud
"For every item purchased, we donate a toy designed specifically for hospitalized children, right here in America."
Not all stories have fairytale beginnings, in fact, our journey started in a hospital room. My daughter was diagnosed with an incredibly rare childhood disease requiring frequent hospitalizations, and as her mom, I was determined to make sure she was emotionally equipped for journey ahead. I wanted to teach her important life skills such as patience, forgiveness, resilience and self-confidence. I realized that the school curriculum didn't teach this, neither did the toy industry. Nobody was focusing on the emotional intelligence of kids- so I did.
