California Rainbow Makes Pillowcases for Children’s Hospital of Orange County
NORWALK, CALIFORNIA – When 40 girls + adults get together you expect a lot of laughter and talking, but on Saturday, August 20th, there was also a lot of creating happening. California Rainbow worked together to make pillowcases for the Children’s Hospital of Orange County, CHOC. The pillowcases are used when children have MRIs. The bright colors make the imagine appear clearer. This allows them to give better and more accurate diagnosis to their patients. Not only does it give them a better picture but it also allows the kids feel more comfortable while getting tests done. Within just two hours the girls of California Rainbow were able to make a stunning amount of 40 pillowcases and 50 cheerful cards for the patients at CHOC!
What would a Rainbow event be without some ice-cream? Saturday was no different because the local SoCal Helpful Honda People came and surprised us with free ice cream! In some ways we were twinning with them with Random Acts of Helpfulness! “It’s not a dream. FREE Ice Cream!”
The next morning some local rainbow girls and a few Grand Officers, including our Grand Worthy Advisor Heidi, went to CHOC to deliver the pillowcases and notes. You can say that the kids at CHOC, will be sleeping soundly with the pillowcases that the members of California Rainbow sewed.
The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls is a non-profit service organization for girls ages 11 to 20 that teaches girls to be leaders by building confidence and public speaking skills in a safe and fun environment. It teaches girls to help others with service to create a better community. California Rainbow encourages and inspires youth to come together to make a difference–like how its members joined forces to provide 40 pillowcases for the patients of CHOC. Just think, changing others’ lives can be as simple as making a MRI more comfortable for patients. This is one of many service projects that local and state Rainbow Girls get together to do.
