Send a Valentine to a Packard Children’s Hospital patient

Screen Shot 2016-02-09 at 10.15.55 PMLast night I saw a post on Twitter that made my heart melt. The message was simple: Send a Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford patient a Valentine to let them know that someone is thinking of them and cheering them on.

Their goal is to collect at least 1000 cards by this Friday to distribute to children and their families this Valentine's Day. Well-wishers can show their support by going to Packard Children's virtual Valentine site to choose an electronic card, write a message and send some love.

Here on Scope we've written numerous stories about the positive health benefits that people derive from being compassionate towards others. So if you're hemming and hawing about how to celebrate Valentine's Day, here's a great way to show someone special you care.
