Banner Health Foundation provides efficient and effective health care and uses a sliding-fee system based on income to help keep its services affordable. To treat its youngest patients, Banner Health operates two pediatric facilities in Arizona, the Cardon Children's Medical Center and Banner Thunderbird Children's Center, and both centers provide comprehensive medical care and host programs and classes for families.
To help reduce the stress associated with receiving medical treatments, each Banner Health pediatric center houses toy closets filled with new, unwrapped toys, books, and games donated by individuals and partner organizations. Children who have undergone a painful procedure, or who are experiencing anxiety in the hospital setting may choose an item from the toy closet to help comfort them during their visits. While Banner Health accepts all donations of new toys, the organization often faces a short supply of playthings for its youngest patients. Teddy bears and crib mobiles help to lessen the stress and discomfort infants may feel while staying at the pediatric centers, and the toys remain theirs to take home upon departure from the facilities.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help provide new toys to infants receiving hospital care. If G-Team members raise $400, then Banner Health Foundation can provide a teddy bear or crib mobile to 40 infants undergoing treatment at its pediatric care centers. Each additional $10 raised will provide a new toy for another patient.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
