LOLLIPOP is a beautiful non-profit i feel VERY passionate about. I first became involved with LOLLIPOP in 2011 through my friend Kari Lipson. Hearing her share stories with me about all of the incredible work LOLLIPOP does, bringing joy, fun & smiles to the faces of sick children who are stuck in hospitals with life threatening illnesses really touched my heart & inspired me ~ I KNEW immediately i wanted to give anyway i possibly could and be a part of such an incredible organization! After 3 years as a volunteer, I am beyond thrilled to be officially part of the LOLLIPOP family...my mission in life is LOLLIPOP's mission: bringing smiles to as many hospitalized children as possible through the magic of movies & music.
As we all know, movies are magic, creating an escape for us through the fun-filled fantasy. These adorable, brave children face enough challenges every day of their lives. They shouldn't have to miss out seeing all the movies their friends and siblings get to see in theaters, just because they are stuck in a hospital. Since July 2001, Lollipop Theater Network has successfully arranged private screenings of first-run films for children suffering from debilitating illnesses in hospitals nationwide. The films, provided by movie studios prior to DVD release, provide a moment of escape for the pediatric patients whose illness prevents them from going to the cinema.
Please help us continue doing the work we do, bringing smiles to the faces of these brave kiddos. Any donation amount will help…
Please help support LOLLIPOP by giving a donation and sharing this incredible cause with your friends :)
THANK YOU SO MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!

"For Samantha, [the screening] was a well needed break in her soon to be eight week hospital stay. The fact that so many people worked to bring the movie to the hospital really brightened her day. And to get to see the movie in her room with her family and her best friend was a welcome break to the daily tests, medications, therapy, and focus on her health. She was able to transport into imagination for a few hours. It was perfect timing too. I personally am deeply grateful to see my daughter laughing within minutes of the movie starting. I miss her laugh. You brought it back." ~Kimberly London (parent)
It's time for LOLLIPOP's annual online fundraiser, which helps to raise the funds necessary to keep our movie screenings and Rhythm of Hope music sessions active. Our ongoing goal is to offer hospitalized children everywhere an emotional cure from the challenges they face every day and to keep smiles on their faces.
