We at Garden Pediatrics realize that we are currently living in a challenging, ever-changing world amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. We wanted to create a little reminder that we are all in this together and that we can thrive and find the good as we weather this storm.
We are challenging our Garden Pediatrics patients and families to spread kindness in your community — allowing space for us all to give back and be involved. We need each and every one of you to participate so we hope you’ll join us!
Contest Description: Participate in one of the following activities over the next two weeks and take a picture of your participation/finished product. Tag us in your pictures with the hashtag #GPchallenge. We will then have our staff vote and pick the top 3 winners who will each win a small prize! Please feel free to submit multiple entries if you would like to participate in more than one activity! Deadline for submissions: Thursday, April 16, 2020. If you want to try something not on the list feel free to use your creativity and tag us to be a part of the challenge.
**Be sure to practice safe social distancing techniques while participating in this challenge and as always, wash your hands often!**
We look forward to seeing all of the ways that you can give back!
