Join DukeDC at the Duke in DC Office for a hands-on, family-friendly Duke Alums Engage(DAE) activity, in partnership with SoaringWords, Inc. This DAE activity kicks off with an Inspirational Video that explains the mission, vision and impact of SoaringWords. Following the video, participants will decorate SoaringQuilts® and SoaringPillows® with inspirational messages and artwork for patients and families at Children's National Medical Center. Participants will also create SoaringSuperhero messages and artwork to put inside pillow pockets! We will provide everything you need for a creative and meaningful family service project, perfect for all age groups, to benefit children who need hope and comfort.
SoaringWords is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to inspire ill children and their families to take active roles in self-healing. SoaringWords is the only organization to motivate ill children and families to “pay it forward” because when a child does something kind for another child it accelerates transformational healing. SoaringWords’ signature group event, the decoration of quilts and pillows, aids in this mission by comforting and inspiring children on their path of healing.
Registration fees include pillow & quilt design supplies, food and beverages:
- Adults: $10
- Children under 18: $5
