Today’s mission aimed to brighten the day for six patients at Lansing’s Sparrow Hospital. A quick stop into the gift shop and we were armed with a few Santa ornaments, Christmas pins and candy to deliver to some patients in need of a little cheer.
We stopped on the orthopedics, oncology and women’s floors and asked the nurses if they could point us in the directions of some patients who’d appreciate a small gift and a short visit. (Don’t worry, the candy only went to nurse-approved patients!)
One person we talked to had heard of the ninjas (thanks, LSJ!) but most hadn’t. It didn’t matter. We were just happy to have our first face-to-face visit with people who will never know who we are but, we hope, got a bit of a boost on Christmas Eve at the hospital.
