Send a Valentine to a sick child

First off, send a valentine to a sick child. It's as easy as a click of the mouse. LifeBridge Health is asking families to visit the website and make a Valentine for a child at the Herman & Walter Samuelson Children’s Hospital at Sinai.

The goal is to send 2,000 cards to the pediatric patients, according to the website.
