Inspired by the international #adoptagrandparent movement.
Everybody needs a buddy, especially when loved ones are out of reach. My mission with Balloon Buddies for Friends in Denton County is to bring warmth and cheer to as many of our friends in long-term care as possible with a hand-crafted balloon buddy for each resident of participating facilities. We all have felt the effects of Covid-19 on some level, and from what I witnessed as an employee of a long-term care facility in Denton, those in residence have been hugely impacted by the restrictions put in place. No visitors allowed, minimized group activities, and in many cases, confinement to their own rooms.
In a day and age where most smiles remain concealed behind masks, we can beam rays of hope, and share smiles in the small ways we can. The Balloon Buddies are just one way to share warmth and kindness, I believe we all have a spark of something wonderful, and we can find creative ways to share love with those who need it most in our community.
Delivery to participating locations is free, all others, delivery fees may apply.
