From the Founders: Time is Precious Update

| comments

Time is Precious, Simon Pegg’s charity of choice during our Star Trek: To Boldly Go campaign last year, is a small but mighty organization in Bristol, England that works to make life a bit brighter for young children and their families that find themselves in the hospital for extended periods of time. You made an incredible impact for this organization, and we’re so excited to share. Check out this video from our co-founder, Ryan, and read on for even more. Thanks for being awesome.

 

 

The first project Time is Precious tackled since the campaign, was to refresh a pediatric accident and emergency waiting room so it provides a more calming and safe space for parents to comfort their children. Check out the before and after pics!

They also built and furnished a new sensory room where children can go to relax and stimulate their senses through music, small projectors, sensory maps and more.

The last project you funded is a rehabilitation room called The Den, which serves children who are in the hospital for up to two years. Simon Pegg stopped by during the Star Trek campaign for a segment with BBC to see the room before it was updated. Being in the center of the hospital ward, The Den has no windows or natural light. To brighten it up, Time is Precious is making a digital skylight with an LED screen! It’ll show the sky, sun, clouds and even stars and moon at night. Pretty awesome. Because of you, this room will get a dose of light, life and love.
Thank you so much for all of your support. Nicky and Neil, the founders of Time is Precious, as well as all the families and children using these resources, are overwhelmed with gratitude. Live long and prosper.

You can live the dream too!
