Tuesday was such a great night! One of my best in a while. I had planned a Frozen event at Rikshospitalet i Oslo, Where Elsa was supposed to visit all the children’s depsrtments there.
There are several reasons why we did so. (I planned this with Anders, the event coordinator for the kids there). After working with kids for years, and in many cases disabled and sick kids, I know the importance of making a hard day and a Sad day a better day. These kids are going through a lot more than we most likely would ever experince in our life, and their life might be way more limited than a normal kids life. However, kids are kids and they deserve to feel like kids. Also, these kids deserve some special treatment because sometimes we dont know if they will make it to the next day.
About a year ago, I saw a Facebook video where 2 College girls had dressed up as Disney princesses and visited childrens hospitals. It was a big hit! For these kids it was a dream come true. A real Disney princess come to see them. This made the day for many of these kids and it made them belive in their dreams and it gave them hope. Sometimes in situations these kids experinces, you need that hope and positive energy. It can actually help imporve your health. It is actually scientifically proved that positivity and happiness can affect your Health.
I wanted to bring this idea back from the states to Norway. I am a big fan of Disney and the princesses myself and since I have been doing theater for years I thought this would be perfect. 5 months later and some email back and forth, we were ready to create some Magic in Oslo.
It was such a success. The prices of the faces of the kids is worth more than everything I owe. To see such excitement and happiness by doing this for them is priceless.
I met this boy in a wheel chair which had been waiting an hour to meet me, refusing to do anything else than see Elsa. Even the doctor had to wait. He couldnt be happier when we came. I experinced this several times - so can you imagine how I felt?
Doing something fairly simple in my eyes and getting all this in return is amazing. I will for sure come back soon and I hope we can go togheter as a crew next time to bring more happiness to these kids.
(I would not share any photos of the kids because of privacy reasons)
