Heartbeat: International Day of the Child, Amazon Smile Holiday Shopping
This Sunday, December 10, RMHC of NC is celebrating International Children’s Day. Originally founded by UNICEF and the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences as a day to “tune into kids,” and celebrated annually on the second Sunday of December, this day serves as a reminder to focus on the world’s littlest citizens.
Did you know that our Houses collectively serve more than 6,800 families each year? And each of those children being treated at area hospitals needs your help to keep their family close to them this holiday season.
