You may have a hard time deciding which is cooler...
A. Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) landing on the roof of Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in Brisbane, Australia via helicopter and surprising the brave, buccaneer patients.
B. Captain Jack Sparrow's (Johnny Depp) exclusive interview with Ula, a two time cancer survivor and Juiced TV kid correspondent. (Juiced TV is a TV Show made by the kids in the hospital for the kids in the hospital!)
Within the first 15 seconds of tuning in you'll forget that the kids you're meeting are sick. During each episode you'll experience the exciting hospital happenings through the eyes of a different TV Host who is also a pediatric patient. From scaly adventures with visiting reptiles and sea creatures to celebrity cameos and outings to carnival fundraisers; this show is non-stop fun! Look out Jimmy Fallon... These children are unscripted and hilarious!
If laughter truly is the best medicine then Lady Cilento Children's Hospital is in full supply. While this hospital is indeed a positive place of healing you know that behind the scenes, there are some really painful days for these children and their families. Perhaps this is what makes the show even more inspiring: if these children can squeeze the most happiness out of their days at the hospital; then we have no excuse not to do the same!
WHY chocolate bar, The Book, should be next up on your reading list... The word inspiring doesn't do it justice.
When I grow up I want to be like Dylan Siegel; he's 7-years old. Dylan wrote Chocolate Bar, the book to raise money to find a cure for his best friend Jonah's rare liver condition, GSD Type 1 b. This is more than just a fairy tale, so far the book has raised $750,000, which is #sochocolatebar (AKA TOTALLY AWESOME)! The boys are well on their way to reaching their 1 million dollar mark! All money raised goes directly to Jonah’s research fund at the University of Florida where his doctor, GSD expert Dr. David Weinstein, is actively seeking a cure that will have applications for other liver-related diseases as well.
Look out Batman and Robin and make way for Dylan and Jonah! These two elementary school boys are the type of heroes we're introducing children to as part of The Greater Purpose Project: School Heroes Tour. The #GPP School Heroes Tour is a "get of your chair throw your hands in the air" assembly that introduces children to real life super heroes like Dylan and Jonah, in addition to celebrities who are using their star power for the greater good. The purpose of the assembly is to inspire children to discover how they can use their own talents and differences as super powers to help others!
