Jordan Jansen recently donated his time to help a very worthwhile cause.
He attended a radio session sponsored by an organization called Radio Lollipop!
Radio Lollipop is a wonderful organization that helps children make the most and best of their time while they are admitted in the hospital for care!
Having a grandchild of my own that spend many days a month under hospital care it gives me first hand understanding of just how important a program like this is.
We are all very proud of Jordan to take time to bring joy to children who are in such great need just to be given a reason to smile. The blessing that this progam brings to these extremely ill children by providing moments like this is immeasurable.
Below is a full description of what Radio Lollipop is all about directly from their website!
Radio Lollipop believes in the healing power of play – providing smiles and laughter to children at a time when they need it most.
One in four children are admitted to a hospital before reaching age 14. Though some patients are short-stay, many have a recurring need for care and return repeatedly to hospital. Some who are terminally ill spend much of their short lives in hospital.
Radio Lollipop gives young patients a voice and a choice during their stay. While they can´t say “no” to taking their medicine or receiving treatment, they can request their favourite songs, win prizes and hear their own voices on the radio. Those activities give youngsters a haven of normality in the hospital day which in other respects is strange, different and often scary.
While Jordan was there he sang many songs for the children who were in the studio. He followed that up by taking a walk through all the wards signing autographs and taking pictures with his fans. The day was closed out by going back to the studio where he had his hands painted for their wall of fame and a radio interview!
“Way to go Jordan! Your Fan’s and Supporters are all very proud of you!”
