Healing and Happiness in Local Children’s Hospitals

Child participating in Music Therapy

Children’s Health Foundation

London, ON

DQ® franchisees, crew members and fans have made a difference through helping fund the music therapy program at Children’s Health Foundation in London, Ontario. This program helps give kids the childhood they deserve, by using melody and rhythm as a natural way for kids and teens to express their emotions when they may not be able to verbalize their feelings, fears or concerns during their hospital stay.
