Proceeds: Money raised will benefit Mitchell’s House, a project of Mitchell’s Fund, which is a safe place that offers counseling and play therapy to children with serious illnesses, as well as their parents and siblings. When a child is diagnosed, it can impact the entire family and loved ones can become anxious, overwhelmed and exhausted. Mitchell’s House offers services regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
Their licensed clinicians and play therapists provide services like:
– Trauma-informed therapy and coping skills
– Medical play, art and sand tray therapy
– Sibling and parent support groups
– Procedural preparation and end of life therapy
