What is a Guideposts for Kids Comfort Kit?
In 2006, Guideposts Outreach in collaboration with Chaplain Anna Gentile from the Maria Fareri Childrens Hospital created the Comfort Kit to spiritually support and address the alarming growth of children being treated for illness and injury. The Guideposts for Kids Comfort Kit is a spiritual resource containing carefully selected items that speak to a childs comfort, renewal and spiritual well being. It is specifically designed to help children cope with hospital visits, treatments and the uncertainty of their condition.

Whats in the Kit?

The Comfort Kit is a spiritual resource that offers the unique opportunity for a child to go within and be expressive through words, a prayer, and pictures. Each kit contains Sparkle, a warm friendly pillow for comfort, a personal name tag, an Im Special bracelet, a stand-up sparkle prayer card, parent feedback card, wish upon stars, stickers, crayons and a journal that not only tracks a childs hospital stay but also invites a child to express their hopes, wishes and concerns.
