When I was a little girl, Disney Princesses Jasmine & Ariel were ALWAYS my favorite. Growing up, everyone I knew had their own favorite character and while so much has changed in the world around us, this happy slice of childhood has remained the same for little ones growing up in today’s world. That’s what inspired Alyssa Banks, founder of The Princess Program Foundation, to find a way to bring ill children’s beloved favorite characters to life during a time of great need. Filling the hallways & patient rooms of local hospitals with joy, Banks and her team work to bring princesses like Cinderella, Ariel, Belle, and so many others to the bedsides of little patients. “I got this idea by volunteering with children battling serious illnesses, and I saw the way it affected them and their families and I wanted to make a difference in their world.” Yet with the global pandemic still looming, it’s become a challenge to continue her mission. “With the current world situation, we aren’t able to physically go into hospitals and visit children,” explains Banks. That’s why today, a $5 donation will go not only towards continuing to support the work of the Princess Program Foundation to help them continue their work, but also enter you to win this adorable custom Princess Program Foundation teddy bear for your favorite little one in your life!
