Hello everyone, so my name is Laura Russell and I'm 17 from Canberra, Australia. So a few months ago I tried to apply as a volunteer at the Canberra hospital but unfortunately you have to be over 18 to do so. Earlier tonight (November 2nd) I was looking at the volunteer page again and tried to think of how I could help even though I can't volunteer. Then I thought how much I would hate to be in a hospital on Christmas, and I decided that I would try to make Christmas at the hospital special. Basically I want to donate a bunch of toys to the hospital so that all the kids there get a special Christmas present. Along with it not being much fun to be in a hospital room over Christmas, there is also the factor of hospital bills for the parents, which further inspired me to try to do this.
Thank you so much for looking at this page and an extra special thank you if you decide to donate.
