Adopt A Light
Hasbro Good Night Lights Program
Help us "Adopt-A-Light", for each $10 donation MINI's Making A Difference will purchase a flashlight for a child at Hasbro Children's Hospital. Each flashlight will be given to a child and remain with them even when they leave Hasbro in the hopes that someday they can join in on the other side of town brightly shining them back at the hospital.
This pocket size flashlight has been selected because of durability, quality, and ability to shine brightly for up to two miles, allowing the light to be shared.
This narrative from the Hasbro Childrens Hospital best describes the program.
"Good Night Lights is a local tradition that began with a simple gesture: Long-time hospital "resident cartoonist" Steve Brosnihan wanted to wish the children of Hasbro Children’s Hospital a good night as he rode home on his bicycle after an evening at the hospital.
From a spot near India Point Park, Steve paused to illuminate the headlight of his bicycle toward the hospital’s awaiting patients.
After realizing that the gesture was a much-appreciated way of letting hospital patients know that someone is thinking about them, Steve began recruiting local businesses to participate.
Since then, restaurants, hotels, Brown University, police departments and an assisted-living community have joined in at 8:30 p.m. each night, making “Good Night Lights” one of area’s fastest-growing traditions.
Since Good Night Lights began, hospital patients have embraced the tradition, and still gather by the windows of Hasbro Children’s Hospital to flash lights back at Providence and neighboring East Providence.
Everyone is invited to participate in this special tradition!"
