About Circle of Blue:
In 2011, a group of female philanthropists coalesced around a common purpose—to support improvement and expansion of care for the children of Kentucky. Each year, Circle of Blue society members each invest $2,500 in Kentucky Children’s Hospital for projects to enhance the experience of patients, families, and visitors.
As we move into the next decade of our service to Kentucky’s children, Circle of Blue members have launched a campaign to support the endowment of a Child Life Specialist for the Makenna David Pediatric Emergency Center. New members joining our Tenth Anniversary Campaign will receive an exclusive charm and bracelet reflecting their investment in the holistic care approach we champion.
About Child Life:
Child Life provides a needed bridge for young patients between the adult language they hear and their developmental ability to process what’s happening to them. Specialists help children understand their medical treatment through play interventions, supporting them through challenging situations with something that every child loves—toys!
Child Life’s essential service—to help children positively cope with the stress of hospitalization—is not billable to insurance. That makes donations even more important as we work to improve the quality of a child's experience.
