Emoji Pillows for St. Louis Children's Hospital Patients!

Here at Throwboy, our motto is “happiness you can hold”. When you buy a Throwboy pillow, we want it to make you smile as soon as you receive it. We hope that when you see it on your couch or bed or give it to a friend it brings a smile. It’s our mission to share joy whenever possible.

To that end, on Thursday, March 19th we donated 57 of our Hearts Emoji Pillows to the St. Louis Children’s Hospital, with a Throwboy sticker sheet and handwritten note to go with each one.

The St. Louis Children’s Hospital has an impressive list of achievements and awards. These include:

  • The Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (This is the nation’s highest honor for nursing excellence and only 2% of U.S. hospitals nationally have this!)
  • Child magazine’s list of the nation's '10 Best' pediatric hospitals four consecutive times
  • Repeatedly named one of the Best Pediatric Hospitals in America by U.S. News and World Report 
  • The world’s largest pediatric lung transplant program 

The Children's Hospital is surrounded by cheerful art

As you probably know if you follow us, we love superheroes here at Throwboy. We wanted to take a chance to get the word out about the real-life superheroes that work at the St. Louis Children’s Hospital and do what we could to brighten the patients’ days.

How cute are their donation carts?!  

We would like to give a huge thank you to Becky Belanger, the Special Events Coordinator for the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation, for helping us arrange this.
