Teen Making a Difference: Join in and help a child in need!

In the video above, you can see Haley Whatley talking about the Bunnies and Bears program that she started for sick children at Cooks Children’s Hospital when she was 6 years old. From a child’s impulse to comfort other children who were hurting, Haley’s program has grown to include multiple schools, churches, and families. Haley inspires me with her belief that, even as a child, she has something important to offer to this world. While she plays tennis, runs cross-country, and is interested in having fun just other kids her age, she’s also interested in making this world a better place.

If you would like to donate to her project, Haley Whatley suggests that you send a Build-A-Bear gift card to Cooks Children Hospital 801 7th Ave, Fort Worth, TX 76104. Make sure that you write ATTN: Pastoral Care Department and indicate that it’s for the Bunnies & Bears Program. There is a Build-A-Bear shop in the hospital and the kids can use the gift card to go down and make their own!

This is Haley’s senior year, so it may be her last big push for the Bunnies & Bears program for awhile. Let’s work together to make it a great one!
