Non-profit organizations bring Christmas cheer to children’s hospitals. How to donate in Florida * Florida

ORLANDO, Fla. – The man with the bag is outside. The national nonprofit organization with the bags is there.

The Greyson Project is giving Santa Claus a run for its money by helping deliver sacks of festive decorations to children’s hospitals across the country.

It’s a project with a mission to “bring joy to children and their families spending the holidays in hospitals across the country,” according to the nonprofit’s website.

The idea for the project came about in 2010 when Greyson and his family were having a difficult time in the hospital during the holidays, the website reveals. Before saying goodbye to their boy, the family received a care kit so they could decorate the room for Christmas.

“All visitors were struck by the fact that this was the only room with decorations and what a difference it made when entering Greyson’s room! Truly everyone wants to feel at home during the holidays!” the website reads.

The Orlando-based initiative officially launched in 2015 and has snowballed since then. With the help of generous donors, the Greyson Project has donated thousands of bags of seasonal happiness over the past six years.
