Ways to Support Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta During the Holiday Season


You Can Spread Holiday Cheer While Helping Sick and Injured Children

Through fuzzy ducks, Christmas parades and rides on Priscilla the Pink Pig, organizations from all over the metro area are working to support Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta this holiday season. Families in metro Atlanta can spread holiday cheer and celebrate in numerous ways, all while supporting Children’s.

All in for All Better” Campaign 
This year, more than 1,000 children are expected to spend part of their holiday season at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s hospitals.
