Riley kids find all kinds of ways to give back to the hospital that helps them. One special way patients can give back is by sharing artwork.

Today, we introduce you to 7-year-old Kilyn Dripps, whose artwork is featured on Riley Holiday Cards and Riley Ornaments as part of The Gift of Hope Happens Here campaign. Her Snowman ornament is available exclusively at Speedway locations. 

Q: Can you tell us a bit about yourself and how Riley Hospital has helped you?

A: I am 7 and I go to Hinkle Creek Elementary School in Noblesville, Indiana. I love gymnastics and cooking! Riley has helped me by having the best doctors and nurses to take care of me during my surgeries.

Q: Can you describe the artwork you created for the Riley Holiday Cards and Ornaments?

A: I painted three snowmen and a winter scene because I really like snow and building snowmen.

Q: Why is it important to you to encourage people to donate to Riley Hospital?

A: Because it helps kids get the care they need.

Q: What’s your wish for Riley this holiday season?

A: My wish is that people donate and help all the sick kids.

Q: What is your message to people who donate to Riley?

A: Thank you for helping us and donating!
