So happy to hear you did it! I bet you'll never forget the experience and neither will the kids. Reminds me of a good quote I heard once.... "do the hard thing!" It always pays off in the end.

Oh my - just read these posts and it makes you want to cry and cheer a the same time.

I think I have a place and a goal for my face painting - I think I will practice, try to get really good and see if I can help out in some way. I feel I need to Pay-It-Forward some how and this could be my nitch.

Thanks for posting all this - just makes me feel good inside and that there is caring peolpe still out there!

Fesspenter ---I think you should write a short story about this and send it in to a Readers Digest type magazine! Wonderful!

I am horrible at writing. Writing is like ripping out a part of my heart and leaving it bleeding on the page for all to see. I write out observations on the FPF, and I feel like I am preaching to the choir. It feels affirming to write out my little heart on the FPF.
I wrote about face painting at Sick Kids many years ago on Philadelphia Tivoli's Face Painting Tips, and I got a few extremely angry letters telling me that face painting in a hospital was disgusting and synonymous with spreading disease, filth and pestilence.
My little heart got stomped on.
I am saving it all for the FPF.

Update on this. I paint at so many events, that I remember some children's faces, but I can't always remember when I painted them. I had birthday yesterday, and I knew I had painted this little girl before, just couldn't pin point it. I finished all the children and they were very happy, and then the little girls father came up to me and asked if I could paint a dragon on his shaved head, like I did on his little son Braden, at that moment, I totally lost it because I realized this was the family of the little boy Braden that I painted last August. Braden passed away this last year. Oh I was a cry baby!

I am now a regular for painting medical, and special needs events. As many of you know, my son is a childhood cancer survivor. I have a hard time imagining what it would be like for someone not familiar with the sick child world not crying every night after painting cancer kids. Last weekend I did carnival for Assisted living company. I had a blast, some of the most fun and grateful people ever! Would like to thank Lisa again for sharing her knowledge of painting in medical areas!

I didn't realize that they allowed painting in hospitals, which is awesome to know! We have a huge Children's hospital here that I'm sure would love it and I'd love to make that a charity of choice. I'll have to talk to them about that when I get some more brushes.
Thanks for those tips Lisa!
