The Amy Cole Gift

– updated June 5 –
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Amy Cole Gift.

We are deeply grateful for your generosity and support in honoring such an extraordinary person. The Amy Cole Gift was officially closed on June 5th, having received 421 donations to the sum of $47,125 to support the impactful work about which Amy was so passionate.

These funds will be used to help build our new Radio Lollipop studio in Amy’s name at Memorial Hermann Hospital (in Amy’s home state of Texas) and for the purchase of our first ever American LolliTrollie that visits room to room (for use in Amy’s adopted city of New York at NYP Children’s Hospital). Though the campaign has concluded, we will keep this page live for the next 6 to 8 weeks as a tribute to Amy and to acknowledge the contributions of all who gave in her memory. (Meanwhile, donations are still being accepted through this page if you’d like to help increase the total – see below.)

Thank you for making a difference to the lives of children in hospital in recognition of such a very special person.

– Original message –
Thank you for considering a donation to the Amy Cole Gift for Radio Lollipop.

Amy’s support and leadership within Radio Lollipop spans two decades and helped so many sick children, both in Texas and in New York Children’s hospitals.

Amy’s skills as a child life specialist in Texas and her senior leadership role in recruiting volunteers for Radio Lollipop in New York played a significant role in our work.

All donations received through this appeal will be shared equally between the Radio Lollipop Texas and New York chapters and will go directly to supporting the children that we work with as a gift in Amy’s name.  This will help us to keep her amazing spirit alive in our work that she was so passionate about.

Amy and Radio Lollipop have the same shared goals using play activity and music to support and change the lives of sick children in hospital and treat everyone with dignity, respect and kindness.
