Holiday Decorating and Surprise Santa Sacks

by Healing Hunter Foundation


The Healing Hunter Foundation is a children's cancer non-profit that rocks the house with love, hope & smiles...& always in the coolest way possible. Every year for the past 5 years we've decorated Doernbecher Children's Hospital for the holidays & it's a phenomenal project that delivers smiles upon smiles & holiday cheer to the kiddos who are admitted & receiving treatments during this time. And then we also deliver customized surprise Santa Sacks on Christmas morning! Fabulous surprise!

Kiddos fighting cancer are truly fighting for their lives. To be admitted during the holiday season makes it that much harder. We do our best to uplift their spirits and let these families know that they are not alone and that there are tons of people outside of those hospital wall cheering them on and making a huge effort to deliver some very much needed smiles.


The holiday decorating stays up the entire month of December and brings an amazing holiday cheer throughout the hospital hallways. And the surprise holiday sacks are a HUGE hit with the kiddos. They are over the MOON excited when these sacks are delivered to their hospital rooms on Christmas morning. Smiles galore for them as well as their mom, dad and siblings.

Long-Term Impact

The holiday decorating brightens the spirits of the kiddos in the hospital, the families visiting, the nurses & doctors that work there & all that pass by. It's truly transformed & turned into a magical winter wonderland that helps them forget, as least for a lil' bit, about the seriousness of fighting for their life. Every child fighting cancer that's admitted to Doernbechers receives a holiday sack, as well as their siblings, & then we do a massive drop off of hundreds of toys to Randalls.
