Let's share smiles of children in hospitals!

Why don' you make use of your talent and make sick children happy? Let's bring happy time full of creativity to the monotonous and boring life with the pain. By providing the activity regularly, hospitalized children can participate in the activity repeatedly and look forward to with a prospect. We believe this makes the children regain sense of accomplishment and confidence and also keep on having volition fight against illness.
