Spirit of Children Fundraiser Kicks Off in Support of Logan Health Children's
Once again, the Spirit of Children fundraiser is ready to make hospitals less scary for kids and their families. This annual fundraiser by Spirit Halloween supports Child Life departments in hospitals all over the nation, including Logan Health Children's. In three years, they have raised $84,631 for Logan Health Children's and have brought joy to our pediatric inpatients by donating costumes during our reverse trick-or-treating day.
This nationwide fundraiser has raised more than $110 million dollars to date, with a goal to raise $18 million dollars in 2023. You can be a part of the fun! By shopping at a local Spirit Halloween store or donating online, you can support your local Child Life specialists, pediatric patients, and their families during the Halloween season.

As always, we are incredibly thankful for Spirit Halloween’s support for our kids in Montana and look forward to bringing our patients some Halloween festivities in the weeks to come!
Child Life is a specialized program to help pediatric patients and their families cope effectively with hospitalization. Child life specialists are trained to understand the different ways children process their emotions in stressful situations. Using an approach rooted in child development, child life specialists provide age-appropriate therapeutic play, education and psychological preparation for procedures, focused sibling support and much more in order to reduce fear, anxiety and pain for children and families.
The activities and interactions help patients and siblings better understand what is happening, as well as build rapport and trusting relationships with the child life specialist and medical staff.
