Pint-Sized Hero

the daisy project

Do you remember playing “He loves me, he loves me not” when you were younger? In high school, my sister and girlfriends would pick a daisy, or some other flower with multiple petals to help determine whether or not the boy we had a crush returned the crush. We’d pluck each petal one-by-one and say “he loves me, he loves me not” hoping that the last petal was “he loves me”!

There is a young lady in the Tampa Bay area who took this little daisy game and made it into a wonderful charity giving back to St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital. She was touched by her friend who was receiving treatment for cancer. She lost her hair and like many kids in the hospital, can’t leave for weeks and months. Our little pint-sized hero wanted to find a way to help her friend as well as the other kids in the hospital.

Chloe, a 7 year old, collects toys, books, craft items, coloring books, anything to help the kids keep their minds off treatment.  She delivers the donations to the hospital. Her mission is to spread blessings from kids to kids and hopefully provide smiles and distractions from their treatment even for a few minutes. Most of all, she wants to remind them that no matter what “God loves them and will ALWAYS love them”.

In December 2013 and February 2014, our local Tampa Bay Fox affiliate recognized Chloe in their segment called “What’s Right with Tampa Bay”. Most recently, Chloe was chosen as a Top 10 Hero by BayCare Health Services “Kids Are Heroes” program.
