Flashlights for Good Night Lights

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."

Please 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. The flashlight will be given to a child so they can share the light for a
minute of magic with those across the city of Providence at bedtime.  The flashlight will remain with them in the hope they can share the light on the other side of town brightly shining it back at the hospital.
