Elves in the Windows (and other Riley magic)

December 5, 2013

Sometimes, when you're a kid in a hospital during the holidays, you feel like you're missing out.

Sometimes, it can be hard to find your smile.

But sometimes, something magical happens.

Like a trio of elves dangling outside your window as they make a 10-story descent down the side of your hospital building.

Palm to palm, through the glass, you show them how happy you are that they took a break from their busy schedule to make this special trip.

Santa arrives with gifts. Your parents and nurses and doctors smile, take pictures and wipe away a few tears.

And you realize that, while this isn't where you most want to be right now, this is a very special place.

This is Riley.

There is magic here.

The Gift of Hope Happens Here campaign offers you a chance to make a difference for Riley kids this holiday season. Kroger is matching your gifts, so you can make twice the impact. Click here to learn more or make a gift today.
