Show Your Shine - Support Lurie Children's Hospital
20% of sales from this collection will go directly to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago in support of the 'Show Your Shine' campaign from the Children's Service Board:
This campaign is focused on improving access to care, building up specialized expertise, and expanding research and innovation through establishing new collaborative care models. In addition to providing treatment to patients at the hospital and its outpatient sites, the team trains community-based pediatric providers and Lurie Children’s residents to identify and treat common mental health concerns like ADHD, anxiety, and depression. Through this model, Lurie Children’s is able to reach a broader range of children and intervene at an earlier age, reducing long-term mental health before entering adulthood.
