#SomeGoodNews: I’ll be at the Talk 4 Kids 2020 event. #t4k2020 @talks4kids

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

Let’s share Some Good News.

Before moving to Canada, my last event in Spain was probably one of the the best one ever: with a couple of friends we hosted the Talk 4 Kids.

Talk 4 Kids

The event is focused on technology, with amazing speakers, and the funds raised will go entirely to an NGO or foundation, which has programs and actions focused on children (see Theodora Foundation below).

In 2015 we set ourselves a goal of € 1,500.00. If we managed to reach this figure, all the speakers would give their talks in disguise. Luckily for everyone and unfortunately for the speakers, we raised € 1,895, dressed up …. you can still find these images / photos in internet.

This year, we will have an online version, with tons of surprises and you have 2 ways to collaborate / donate:

The speaker lineup is almost ready, and the agenda will be released soon. So, if you want to share some smiles with kids, this is an amazing opportunity to be part of something amazing.

Theodora Foundation

At the Theodora Children’s Charity we believe that all children deserve laughter. The mission at the heart of our work is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment.

Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres across England. By combining music, play, magic and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. We believe that every sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.

Although a Giggle Doctor visit may only last a few minutes, the effect it can have on a child can last a lifetime. The visits often have a lasting impact on the children and families they visit. We often receive feedback from parents telling us the visits have helped to improve a child’s long-term experience of hospital.

“Because of the Giggle Doctors my daughter actually looks forward to coming to hospital for chemotherapy”

“The Giggle Doctor visits have helped my son to interact as he has developed a phobia of medical staff and the Giggle Doctors have helped him be less scared of people on the ward”

A Giggle Doctor visit isn’t just about one magical moment, it can have a significant and lasting impact on a child’s well-being and perception of the hospital environment. 

Happy coding!

Greetings

El Bruno
