Siblings make an unexpected Christmas donation through National Children’s Hospital

Siblings Tyler and Monica Slaven started the Christmas tradition in 2015 and has become a huge movement at their school.

It all started when the older brother and sister realized that children who were hospitalized during the Christmas holidays often did not experience the joy of Christmas as they did.

“Seeing a kid who really understands… the joy of Christmas is priceless,” says Tyler Fox News. “We want to help the kids still have that joy, for those who are in the hospital over Christmas.”

They switched to their online public mode school, Ohio Virtual Academy, has more than 18,000 students statewide, according to Fox.

Thanks to school accessibility, Slaves can reach students and staff across the state when toy drive request for children at National Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.

“The school has done a tremendous job in helping us advertise every year and reach new people, as we are a statewide school,” said Tyler.

Volunteers give donations boxes in different towns as Christmas approached and as a result the two siblings were able to collect almost 50,000 gifts for children hospitalized in the past six years.

Although no longer a student, the school is very supportive of their efforts and proud of their alumni.

“OHVA will once again partner with the Slaven family for the 7th annual Christmas Toy Run to benefit National Children’s Hospital!” surname posted on November 21st.

“You and your family can join in cheering for children who are unable to spend the holidays with their families at home due to health issues that force them to stay at National Children’s Hospital.”
