National Kindness Challenge to Benefit Frontline Heroes | Pacific Palisades
Crayon Collection, an international charity based in Pacific Palisades dedicated to repurposing crayons for vulnerable children, recently launched a national kindness challenge to benefit frontline heroes in memory of the late Dr. Lorna M. Breen.
“We were devastated to hear the news about Dr. Breen and we wanted to do something to help,” Sheila Morovati, founder and president of Crayon Collection, wrote in a statement. “Our Color Kindness Challenge allows people to write or draw an uplifting message and provides a hospital locator so individuals can send their creation to local hospitals.”
Breen was an emergency room doctor at a New York hospital who died by suicide following frontline trauma she suffered due to the onslaught of patients who were dying from COVID-19.
“Frontline healthcare professionals and first responders are not immune to the mental or physical effects of the current pandemic,” the statement continued. “On a daily basis, these professionals operate under the most stressful of circumstances, and the coronavirus has introduced additional stressors.”
The challenge is available for free download at crayoncollection.org.
