Here's how it works: Simply visit to choose your Halloween card and write your message.

Staffers from CHLA's Child Life team will print out your card and hand deliver it along with fun goody bags to a sick child spending the holiday at the hospital.

For every Halloween card sent before October 31, Los Angeles law firm Greenberg Glusker LLP has pledged to give $1 to the hospital, up to $25,000.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospital is not be able to hold its annual Pumpkin Party and costume dress-up for patients and families.

Instead, the hospital will bring the party to the kids via a virtual program of Autumn-themed activities including music, dancing, pumpkin decorating, and arts and crafts.
