Activity Bags for Children at St. Jude's (WPG)

Happy Holidays from:

Enjoy your KyndKit. Thank you for helping us give back this holiday season!


Create waiting room fun bags for children and families at St. Jude's Hospital who are battling life-threatening illnesses. 


Your KyndKit will be used to help children who are receiving treatment at St. Jude's Children's Hospital. All of the bags will be sent to St. Jude's and handed out by their staff to the kids and families in need.


The children and their families spend a great deal of time waiting for treatment, tests, and procedures. These bags help them pass the time while in the waiting room or hospital room. 


These are the instructions for Activity Bags for St Jude's Patients. Questions? Email us at
