Make a child's day by sending a sweet e-Valentine with a personal message — even the youngest kids in your house can help with this thoughtful gesture.

Sending online Valentine's Day wishes to patients at Arkansas Children's Hospital and Arkansas Children's Northwest is free and only takes a few minutes. Visit the website to share a valentine with a peronal note by Tuesday, Feb. 13. Last year, they received nearly 45,000 wishes for children at the hospital!

Arkansas Children's Hospital will also be accepting donations of new art supplies for patients to create their own Valentines. The wish list includes: markers, coloring books featuring characters, construction paper, rhinestones, sequins, foam stickers, googly eyes, kid scissors, glue dots, sketch books, watercolor pencils and liquitex acrylic paint sets.

To protect patients from infections, all art supplies donated must be new and in original packaging.

Use this link to order supplies and have it shipped directly to ACH or drop off supplies at 1 Children’s Way at the hospital’s main entrance. To arrange a time to drop off items, contact Volunteer Services at 501-364-1825 or
