Kindness: The Gift of Gowns
Disney and Starlight have teamed up for a heartwarming initiative, designing Disney Princess and Frozen hospital gowns for children to boost their confidence by channeling their favorite character’s bravery.
Disney and Starlight will be delivering the magic to pediatric facilities across the States this year by donating hospital gowns and pant sets to provide a sense of normalcy and comfort to ill children staying in the hospital.
Disney will also be surprising patients with deliveries of toys, books, and games to children during their hospital stays.
