Birmingham, Ala. (Feb. 1, 2024) — You can share some love and make Valentine’s Day memorable for Children’s of Alabama patients.

Beginning today through Feb. 14, you can send free greeting cards to patients at the hospital. The process is simple. Visit give.childrensal.org/valentinesday and select one of four Valentine’s Day card designs. Hospital staff will print and distribute the cards to patients on Valentine’s Day.

“Being in the hospital can be hard for a child, especially during a fun holiday like Valentine’s Day,” said Mindy Wald, community development manager at Children’s of Alabama. “These cards, which are coming from community members, bring a smile to their faces.”

The card drive is sponsored by Spire, a proud sponsor of Children’s since 2017. Spire will also match donations made by donors during this card drive up to $5,000.

“I’ve seen firsthand the joy the medical play program brings to the patients and families at Children’s of Alabama,” Joe Hampton, president of Spire Alabama, Mississippi and Gulf Coast, said. “That’s why all of us at Spire are excited to once again support this special Valentine’s Day campaign.”

Children’s can’t accept any in-person gift donations, handmade cards, food or candy, stuffed animals, toys depicting violence, religious items, crotched/knit items and gently used homemade items due to infection control protocols.
