Provide the gift of joy and hope to hospitalized children in your community.

Public Speaking. A Message of Hope from Emi Burke.

"I knew from an early age that I wanted to help children. During hospital rounds with my dad, a doctor, I could sense that something essential was missing. I could feel the absence of hope and joy in the hearts of the children we met.

Years later I found myself once again in a hospital setting, this time as the parent of a critically ill young child. I was struck by how little had changed. So many hospitalized children were sitting alone in their beds, devoid of hope and happiness, with their parents by necessity focused on medical care.

In this place I found my calling, to harness the power of good and service to hospitalized children. I never imagined my purpose would be fulfilled through the gift of my profoundly disabled son.

There is no greater gift than using your life purposefully to deliver hope and happiness to children in need. Thank you for visiting the Happy Hope Factory, for sharing your time, talent and treasure, and for joining us as a happy hope hero!"
