Dakota Fanning has put her influence to good use once again by promoting UCLA’s Mattel Children’s Hospital’s Holiday Cards promotion in this new video.
According to UCLA Mattel Children Hospital’s website, “[t]he Holiday Card Art Program strives to create opportunities for “kids to be kids” during an abnormal situation. Artists engage children at bedside to facilitate creative expression during lengthy hospitalizations. This creative collection features cards of the season created by young patients who share their interpretation of holiday celebrations from the bedside.” Also, “Proceeds from card sales benefit the Child Life/Child Development Program, whose specialists work with young patients at bedside to assist creative expression and ease fear and anxiety during lengthy hospitalizations.”
