Thanksgiving week 2019, we delivered plush dogs that resemble Henry, each with a logo bandanna to Cooper Hospital’s children’s units in Camden, NJ. Henry, his doppelganger named Seriously (Seri to her friends), her mom, Anne Rosenberg, and Cheryl were greeted warmly by staff and children alike. Each child got to keep a Henry for comfort. What made our visits so special was that when we walked in, there was petting, smiling & cuddling….with no medical procedures for the kids!
The incredible social work team accepted more plush to bring to the children at their affiliated Domestic Violence Women’s Shelter.
We are currently seeking Be Like Henry Ambassadors in states other than NJ who will help us expand this program to pediatric facilities in under-served areas.
