Shreya, former patient and Champion for Children
“Shreya was born as a preemie baby, weighing only 2.5 pounds, and stayed in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for six weeks. While she was in the hospital, snowflakes and twinkling lights hung from the ceiling, and in the corner, colorful presents were stacked under a tree adorned with ornaments. Those simple decorations were a way to cheer up a cold, stark white NICU on Christmas morning. This simple act meant so much to our family. Shreya has heard us tell this story of what happened when she was born and wanted to do something special by giving back.”
"The twinkle and happiness in her eyes when she reached her fundraising goal and donated the clothes and toys to the hospital was a priceless moment for her, and for our entire family." - Raj, Shreya's father
An exceptional artist, Shreya decided to use her passion for painting as a way to raise funds. She set up a fundraising page and asked her friends and family to donate and receive a Shreya-original painting. She raised an impressive $625, surpassing her initial goal of $500. In addition, she donated new clothes and toys.
