Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford collecting Valentine’s wishes for patients

Packard patient HanaLooking for a special Valentine this year? Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford can help out: They've set up a special site for members of the public to send Valentine's Day wishes to their young patients. It's a simple process -- users select an electronic card (sample greeting: "You're SUPER"), write a personalized note and hit "Send Valentine" -- and the hospital will deliver the greetings on Feb. 14.

The hospital is hoping to receive 1,000 card submissions by Monday, and the site notes that its ultimate goal is to "surprise our patients with an outpouring of love and support from the community."
