Project Sunshine is a nonprofit organization that provides free educational, recreational, and social programs to children and families living with medical challenges.
Project Sunshine empowers a dynamic and dedicated corps of over 15,000 volunteers to bring programming - recreational (arts), educational (tutoring and mentoring) and social service (HIV and nutritional counseling) - to 100,000 children facing medical challenges and their families in 175 cities across the United States and in four international locations: Canada, China, Israel and Kenya.
Our Project Sunshine Chapter at UCLA focuses on "Caregiver Wellness." We provide stress relieving activities such as crafts, knitting, and Aromatherapy while spreading sunshine and smiles to the families of Pediatric patients at Mattel Children's Hospital. We also have various on campus events such as fundraising, sewing Surgi dolls, and making craft kits for our affiliated Pediatric medical facilities.
