Make Valentine's Day special for sick kids at Children's Hospital LA

LOS ANGELES

It's free and easy. And all you have to do is click on a link, pick out the design, customize your own message, and hospital volunteers will do the rest.

"It's an opportunity for us to have a little fun and spread a little cheer on Valentine's Day," said DeAnn Marshall with Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

Once you send in the cards, they're printed out, laminated, and wiped down for infection control. So far, the hospital has received more than 4,000 cards from people all over the U.S. and from countries as far away as Russia.

Some cards have jokes, such as: "What did the Valentine's card say to the stamp?"

Answer: "Stick with me and we will go places."

We got to deliver a few cards early to 6-year-old Hayley Messersmith, who could use a little humor since she broke her arm and needed surgery. She was really excited to read them. Hayley and all the patients at Children's Hospital L.A. appreciate being thought of.

The cards will be packed in special Valentine's Day bags and delivered to all the kids. This week, the hospital is nearly filled to capacity, so they need your help to make sure every child gets a bunch of valentines.
